Blogging discussion: their use in the classroom. Discussions more production than in class due to higher participation. Students post throughout the year, then they have their e-portfolio at the end of the year.
Kapum from x.x.x.4 left this message 11 days ago:
Questions to ponder - legal ramifications, student safety. Group thoughts - educate the students in acceptable use, educate your admin about the safety nets, using sites closed to the public such as within Moodle
Kapum from x.x.x.4 left this message 11 days ago:
Blogging discussion con't - 'subversive" blogging, where daily announcements are posted daily. This can acclimate the resistant to how useful this concept can be. Maybe we should change the name - ie 'online journal.'

Limited access blogs can be - Gaggle, BlogMeister, inside of Moodle. With these, you can have the power to view and approve all posts before they are published.

Advanced Wikis - Skype call - how do you use Wikis online. Students publish their poem about WWI, and then go out and find an image to go with it. .....in AP World History class, small groups write an article based on a question and post on Wiki then other groups go in and 'vet' what the first group published.

Advanced Wikis - (skype con't) use something like 'choose you own adventure' - ie theme of the Holocaust - kids go through research and come up with decisions a particular family would have had to make. The technology here is just a tool; he's had good luck with these three projects
Amy Chayefsky from x.x.x.4 left this message 11 days ago:
Wow! Everyone is using wiki's in such rich and robust ways - community's of learners. A brief moment of a discussion, how to engage adults in understanding 21st century skills, literacies... Wiki's are a nice covert way to engage adult educators in the 'technology' that supports or enriches the learning. keep on truckin'
Laura Sheehy: another idea about teacher buy-in is training that shows how it can be used and the ease of use, especially with time to 'play' instead of just "go use this tool"

Advanced Wikis - three good free sites - wikispaces, pdwiki, and wet paint; users say that pbwikis has a cleaner look, wikispaces is nice because it shows all your memberships on the sidebar; ...
ROBIN: From the report: "One of the most rewarding aspects of the on-line learning experience has been witnessing the achievement of the students and helping them to realize that they did it on their own and with help from their friends. Students have noted that not only have they done well in this class, the achievement has spilled over to their other math classes. "

Advanced Wikis - tech tips - pay attention to how you name things, because as the Wiki grows it can become cumbersome; using the concept of positive deviance (looking for what works, not what doesn't work); showing teachers EXAMPLES is so much more powerful than trying to explain Wikis to others

Laura Sheehy: AWESOME TOOL for visually impaired or ELL or LD people AIR Foundation (Accessibility is a Right). All you need is internet access and as long as you have the website up you have access to functioning screen reader and magnifier. You don't have to create an account but if you do you can save preferences. www.satogo.com If you create an account for students you can put in an artificial phone num ber. The Caps Lock Key + F gives you access to preferences. As long as you are have the website up, it works with all programs, etc.

Good morning - I went to bed thinking about everything I saw yesterday, and woke up this morning thinking about everything still. Typically at a conference I am brainstorming applications for what I learned all the way home - but not this time. It's been very information dense.

Using Ning to learn from my peers how to enrich how I incorporate tech in the classroom is very intriguing. I am still mulling over how to begin. That buy-in thing is the tripper.

Has anyone else thought of ways to use what we've learned here once they're back at work? Anyone willing to share? I'm posting this both on the Conference Conversations wiki page and the chat - since I'm not sure which one people will check more.
Thanks!

Google Docs Backups - inside Firefox, you can use an addon (extension.) Install GreaseMonkey, restart Firefox, go back to addons, download the backup for GoogleDocs, and when you then go to Google Doc's you'll see a new option to download docs. If you want to do complete backup, download the GreaseMonkey script for "Download them all" and then after restarting Firefox, go back into Google Docs, select all, and download docs, right click to download them all.
