  • 5. What is a blog? Howard Rheingold: "Blogs are publications on the internet that enable many people to publish their words in text, or spoken word, or videos, or paintings, or music. Whatever form you want to show the world you can use a blog to show the world and you can do it everyday. It’s not static, it changes when you have a new creation, when you have a new thought you add that to your blog and your readers can see it wherever they are in the world." source: The Weblog Project http://www.theweblogproject.com/

  • 13. K12 Online The conference that never ends... March 27, 2007 Hi Darren, Teachers and staff developers have echoed this thought. I have learned more from other teachers workshop leaders and bloggers online during the last few years than I learned in graduate school. This is surely true for me. This network of teachers are incredibly generous with their time, energy and ideas. The K12 Online conference stands out as a watershed event. It was there then but continues to keep on giving. I use the podcasts and video presentations to demonstrate to my high school students , as well as my graduate students, how to use web 2.0 applications. They can see teachers experimenting with these tools and student work that demonstrate the effective use of technology. It also created a watering hole, or if you wish a cafe, for kindred spirits to meet and learn from each other. I am sure my experience was not unique.
