“Sustained Blogging in the Classroom”
Starting to use blogs in your classroom is one thing, actually embedding them into how you teach and sustaining them as a learning tool over time is something completely different. In the past 3 years, Jeff has helped numerous teachers set up blogs with their students. Some have continued to use blogs as a learning tool, others have given up not able to sustain blogging in their classroom. In this presentation we’ll look at some ways that you can successfully embed blogs into your daily routine and look at examples from teachers around the world who have made blogging part of just what they do in the classroom.

“LMS 2.0 – Engaging Learners Using More Advanced Techniques and the Odd Mash-up inside Moodle”
A series of screencasts showing people how to bend and stretch Moodle to allow for authentic, web 2.0 style, participatory engagement and learning for their students. These screencasts will be accompanied by support files where appropriate, such as backed-up Moodle courses that can be restored on people’s sites as well as any instructional material such as worksheets in pdf form. I’d also like to provide some way for people to screencast their own work in Moodle and share with the rest of the community – perhaps using screen-o-matic, a free screencasting tool that works from your browser. This will allow other people to share new ways they have used Moodle.
