  • 1. Aggregation Tools
    By Gerry Pearson
    For Introduction to Emerging Technology Course
  • 2. Web 2.0
    My objective is to be familiar with the tools, and applications of these, so I can help the instructors at our Technical College select tools that are appropriate
    Many of the instructors know very little about Web 2.0
    Some are adamant about keeping “it” out of their classroom
  • 3. Why this tool?
    Aggregation tools are a way to manage/control the amount of information
    The information is “pulled” in (I chose it) versus being pushed in such as email
    Aggregator collects the information from the web
    As a “newbie” and someone with low technical skills- I am overwhelmed!
  • 4. RSS tools (really simple syndication or rich site summary)
    Google Reader (Google alert…)
    Many more from Tying it all Together article
  • 5. Similarities
    All have options (widgets and gadgets) such as:
    To do list template
    Chat with friends
  • 6. My purpose
    I want to be able to get notices of new information on sites that I like
    Not all of my favorite sites have an RSS link
    I am looking for “strong tie” learning (G.Seimens) and therefore want to be selective
  • 7. Signing Up
    I identified categories in which I wanted to collect information
    Tons of “stuff” arrived in my email box that was inappropriate (yikes! Stop, Stop…)
    Lesson- I don’t want the reader to search for me. I will tell it what sites I want it to keep up to date on
  • 8. Affordances
    Keep up with people and information
    Manage what comes into my email
  • 9. Application
    It is a first step and will help me keep more current in adult learning, curriculum, instructional design
    Social bookmarking may be the next step
    A way to organize favorites
    Love sticky notes and highlighter features but when will I ever get back to read these?
  • 10. More application
    How does Web 2.0 apply in a Technical College?
    Goals are to get people employment ready in a trade in 10 months or less
    Utilitarian view- specific knowledge and skills
    No time for exploration for most students
    Foundational knowledge, then Web 2.0 could be helpful
  • 11. Adding an RSS feed to your website
    Website by Stephen Downes
    Introduction to RSS for Educational Designers
    Indicates that there are a few easy ways to put an RSS link on your website…
