“Release the Hounds”

Description
This presentation takes participants along my journey into integrating 2.0 applications and “21st Century Learning” into my pedagogy. The presentation will show how teacher driven assignments and projects teach students some of the skills they need to use these new technologies to enhance their learning. Scribe Posts, Growing Posts and E-Portfolios will provide participants with three different activities to do with their students. The final part of my presentation takes participants into “unprojects”. Participants will learn how to create “unprojects”. For the veteran teacher who is using 2.0 in their classroom this is for you. See how students are more creative and show more enthusiasm towards assignments when they are in charge of their learning.

Consequently, a strong emphasis will be placed on developing assessment and evaluation procedures and habits that not only complement but also foster the interactive and learner-centric environments afforded by the interactive tools of the read/write web. The presenter will share strategies to assess and evaluate student work on blogs, wikis, and discussion forums.

Presentation Title
“Motivating Student Writers by Fostering Collaboration through Tagging and Aggregating”

Description
The presenters play with boundaries through the simple expedient of having student bloggers in different countries tag their blog posts with the unique tag term writingmatrix. Searching on that tag in Technorati, the student bloggers in four locations in three different countries have managed to locate one another’s posts, leave comments for one another, and have subsequently interacted in other ways as well. The presenters explain how they started the project and how it has branched into other online and even face to face activities involving the students in the participant countries. The presentation is made not only through the voices of the presenters, but with the students themselves lending their voices through their blogs and videos.

Most are quick, easy to implement and designed to have beginning web 2.0 teachers feel “Yeah, I could do that!” Those of us who have been using the tools could think “Yeah, what a great idea. I’m going to do that too!” or “I know just the teacher who would love trying this!”

“Classroom 2.0 or You Live Where?”
Description
Classroom 2.0 is a “slippery concept” that can look different in different communities and schools. But there are some basic concepts that bring value to these classrooms, a few basic ideas that need to be considered by teachers who are looking to make changes to their classrooms. These classrooms are not just about teachers allowing their students to have weblogs, but about what we consider to be basic goals for education, how learning happens in global networks and the possibilities for our students to be legitimate contributors in their own right. Where have we been so far on this journey of change? What are some of the big ideas that we need to consider and where do we need to go next?
