It might be interesting to give this presentation (revised ten years later).:)
Below are the points that I wish to explore in my presentation. Each is a resource-rich hypertext link documenting some of the things I’ve discovered in the past year.
- Omega and Alpha: At the time this link pointed to my Milwaukee Journal online blog column and to new directions in blogging I hoped to explore.
- Pioneering at Carroll: At the time this link pointed to the Freshman Seminar on Web 2.0 learning tools I had developed.
- Taking Hart to heart: At the time, this link pointed to Jane Hart’s first survey of online learning tools.
- Feeding Frenzy: At the time, this link was pointing to my “discovery” of RSS feeds.
- Worldwide collaboration: Link showed how Internet tools allowed for global outreach and cross-cultural communication.
- Tools in schools (K-12!): This link pointed to some of the creative work of my fellow Milwaukee Journal educational community bloggers who were elementary school teachers. I’ve always been interested in learning K – 99!
- Reading and Writing: This link led the audience to blogging software and a discussion of the inter-relatedness of writing and reading.
- Caveats: Here I pointed the audience to thoughtful pieces about the “down-sides” of internet learning tools.
- Beginner Tools (free): Here I pointed the audience to “free” technology learning tools.
- Curious David Redux: Here I addressed new directions I hoped to take my blogging including new blogging tools.
