Put A Blog on the Fire! Light That Wiki!
with Anita Brooks Kirkland from the Waterloo Region District School
This is an overview session for educators who have not had time to
explore some of the new internet technologies and tools that have the
potential to profoundly change the learning landscape as we know it
Do you know about wikis, podcasting, blogging? These terms, while
unfamiliar to us, are everyday language for most of the students in our
classrooms. We are progressing into a virtual social networking
environment made possible by the ever-increasing development of new
on-line collaboration tools which are used for communication by our
students, but have good potential as teaching and learning tools also.
This session will begin to spark your curiosity, and begin to build your
knowledge and skill in this new world.
