  • From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Web_2.0_Map.svg, original 2006 Adaptation/simplification of http://kosmar.de/archives/2005/11/11/the-huge-cloud-lens-bubble-map-web20/
  • New Oxford American Dictionary Word of the Year for 2005. Defined as "a digital recording of a radio broadcast or similar program, made available on the Internet for downloading to a personal audio player" The New Oxford American Dictionary , second edition. Ed. Erin McKean. Oxford University Press, 2005   But also defined as “podcast A portmanteau word made up from the words ‘broadcast’ and ‘iPod’. The strict definition of podcast is some file containing digital media which is stored on a central Web site and whose creation is then broadcast to users of that web site using a Web feed . The term, however, is frequently used much more loosely, for example it is often used to describe an audio file that is resident on a web site.” A Dictionary of the Internet . Darrel Ince. Oxford University Press, 2009

    • What’s the point of Twitter?
    • Why a wiki? Why not a blog?
    • How do I podcast my lectures?
    Who Cares?
  • 3. Participation Engagement Enhancement
  • 4. Wikis Blogs Audio Video RSS Social Software Microblog Tumblelog IM Bookmarks SMS Forums Email
  • 5. Digital Literacy ≠ ICT skills
    • “ Staff capability with ICT is a further dimension of the digital divide …
    • and effective use of technology to enhance learning is as much of an issue as getting it to work” [JISC 2009]
  • 6. Knowledge: explicit and tacit Content Communication Information: transmission/decode encoding /
  • 7. Content
    • web (1.0)
    • Which is “King”?
    • email

  • 8. Content
    • books

  • 10. Content
    • reference
    Communication narrative message presence
  • 11. Content Communication reference narrative message presence
  • 12. Online Reference material
    • Wiki(pedia) as definitive web 2.0 reference
      • large item size (lots of content on a page)
      • large collection size (lots of pages)
    • Delicious provide references
      • links other online content
      • smaller item size (1024 char in notes)
    • RSS provide references to updates
      • small items in themselves
      • non-persistant => no structure / search
    wiki social book marks news feed
  • 13. References – How much content?
    • Can construct an order based on how much content each technology can / typically support
    • Debatable what is web 2.0, e.g. RSS (yes?), ebooks (no?), annotations (yes?) => work to do
    wiki social book marks RSS more structure / persistence bigger items more items
  • 14. blog tumblelog micro blog mixed media bigger items more structure Narrative forum email SMS bigger item mixed media more structure / context Messaging e-confer -ence virtual world online chat mixed media easier access Presence
  • 15. Reference material – Comms Order
    • Can order technology by how much communication each can / typically supports
    • Note: focus on primary purpose of each tech, e.g.
      • wiki’s can have forums to support comms
      • … but not defining character

  • 25. Conclusions for CPD
    • Taxonomy answers basic questions
    • provides structure for reflection
    • identifies areas for development
    • => content=ref, comms=msgs
    • => student plans content focussed
    • Creating content/comms work in progress
  • 26. Conclusions for Practice
    • Invest more time in fewer things
    • Design learning, select technologies
    • Convergence will blur the picture
  • 27. Does it work for you? Links with theory >
  • 28. Application to Learning Theories
    • Objectivism
    • objective knowledge => content  (creation of true models of reality/knowledge by authorities)
    • transmission => comms (teacher-learner interact)
    • Constructivism
    • constructed knowledge => content (creation of personal/shared knowledge by learner)
    • collaborative => comms ("effective", high content)
    • active =>  content (engage with/apply to)
  • 29. Application to Learning Theories
    • Community of Inquiry
    • social presence => comms (low content)
    • teaching presence => content (structure)
    • cognitive presence => high content needed to "construct meaning through sustained comms"
    • Community of Practice
    • domain of practice => content
    • community to share/discuss/challenge => comms
