“Flat Agents of Change”

This presentation is for those folks who are starting out.
All participants will join our ning, seedlings@bitbybit.ning.com. Go to the address for the ning and follow the numbered steps with movies on how to join. The structure for our show will be displayed from the planning to the presentation on ning in order that any teacher could reproduce the journey in their own content or classroom area. By engaging the participants in the ning social network the conversations will continue, as well as the support to become a proficient podcaster and blogger. As with everything we do, we will talk about the purpose and how important this is to the final piece.

    I’ve been enjoying the tools over at the Ning site. Others should come along and do some podcasting and experiment, too.
    The presenters have done a fantastic job with the tutorials.

    Great job Cheryl, Bob, and Alice!

    I truly enjoyed the conversation the three of you had about technology use in schools. I continue to enjoy being part of the Seedlings Ning. What a great network of people! We need to continue to move our teachers into using the tools mentioned in this presentation. They need to become part of the network.
