Finally got around to getting some workshops scheduled for this fall. You can see all technology workshops being offered at the Berrien RESA right here.
In October I’ll be leading a new class trying to cover some of the many, many web 2.0 tools that can easily be used by educators. Connecting & Collaborating with Web Tools starts on October 13 and will last six weeks. During each of those weeks, we’ll focus on a different category of tool and explore ways in which those types of tools can be used to help students gain understanding and learn by being connected not only to pertinent resources but pertinent people (for example, other students) as well.
It’s kind of unfortunate to have to divide those tools into categories, because the differences between some of them is very blurry. But, I needed to be able to chunk the information into a week’s worth of content, so I was forced to make some choices. Here’s how I broke down:
I’m really looking forward to this class…one reason being that participants will have such a variety of activities to choose from. Nobody’s experience will be like that of another. The sharing of projects in the discussion forum should really open everyone’s eyes!
Oh…one more thing…just received confirmation that Connecting & Collaborating with Web Tools has been approved for 6.0 SB-CEUs as well as 2 graduate credits. That can be helpful.
