"Web Tools for Learning: The Read/Write Web in the School Library
with Anita Brooks Kirkland

Do your eyes glaze over when you hear people talking about wikis,
blogging, podcasting, RSS and similar strange terms that haven't even
made it to spellcheckers yet? These terms, while unfamiliar to many of
us, are often everyday language to many of the students in our schools.

This is an overview session for educators who have not had time to
explore some of these new Internet technologies and tools that have the
potential to profoundly change the learning landscape as we know it

What is a Webcast?
This is an expanded version of our popular audio conferences. You will
need a computer and the ability to get on the internet... and a
telephone. That is it. No special hardware; no special software. You
will be given an address on the Web at which you will sign in with a
password that will be given to you in your registration confirmation.
You will be able to see the presenter's desktop and see what he or she
is doing as you watch. Like all audio conferences, there is no limit on
the number of people that might be around the phone at each location.
The limitation will be in how many people can comfortably see the
computer. If you have a data projector, there is probably no limit.
