  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blog on 12/17/2005
  • Homework For years there have been web-savvy teachers who posted their homework on a website for their students and parents. This can still be done with blogs, and with many services teachers can post assignments daily with no knowledge of html, css, rss, and other random combinations of letters Keep Parents in the Loop Of course parents often like to know more about what&apos;s going on in your class than just &amp;quot;Do #s 2-106 on page 42.&amp;quot; A teacher&apos;s blog could become an online newsletter that discusses all kinds of notable events such as units, scans of student work, field trip information and permission slips, and more. Virtual Inservice Many teachers have decided to use their blogs as a forum for sharing their views on educational psychology, technology, and so on. Other teachers have the power to post comments in each others&apos; blogs or even write larger responses in their own blogs. The result is a series of conversations where teachers share their knowledge and experiences with each other where everyone comes out better informed at the end. This week in class, we... Some teachers encourage students to work as a group on a single blog, resulting in a sort of online newspaper where different students work on different articles. Knowing that their audience is now not just the teacher but the entire world, students often end up going above and beyond what they would ever do if they just had to submit a report, two pages, double spaced, MLA format. Student Work Along the same lines, each student could have their own blog where they can post their assignments. The teacher and classmates could then comment on each student&apos;s work, providing concrete evidence of class participation.

  • Blogger - http://www.blogger.com/ This is a great service (owned by Google) that allows anyone to create and customize a blog. While it&apos;s designed so anyone can get started it also has enough versatility for the truly geeky to get almost everything out of it that they want. (audioblogger) Blogmeister - http://classblogmeister.com/ Many blogging services are turned down by schools or teachers because adults loose a certain level of control over the students. After all, bogging students have a global forum where they can say whatever they want. With Blogmeister (from the brilliant mind of David Warlick ), all student postings and comments do not go &amp;quot;live&amp;quot; to the internet unless a teacher approves them. NovemberLearning - http://nlcommunities.com/ Alan November&apos;s blogging service. Used to be free for educators, but will begin charging soon. Has support for photo albums built in to it. Designed for educators, but doesn&apos;t really have any significant features tailored to using it in an educational setting (like Blogmeister) Edublogs - http://edublogs.org/ James Farmer&apos;s Wordpress Multiuser offering to educators. Any teacher can get a free blog there. There are several themes to choose from. It is essentially a standard Wordpress installation, which is the blog engine of choice for many edubloggers because of it&apos;s powerful features and open source code. While the name is Edublogs, there are no features tailored specifically to using it in the educational environement. James also offers learnerblogs.org for students and uniblogs.org for university students and faculty.
  • Podcasts can also be used as formative or summative assessments.
  • Podcasting is a great tool in differentiating instruction.
  • http://jdorman.wikispaces.com/+Podcasting
  • &amp;quot;Wiki-wiki&amp;quot; means &amp;quot;hurry quick&amp;quot; in Hawaiian.
  • Import changes into an rss aggregator (bloglines)
  • Introducing wikis into the classroom provides a perfect vehicle for reinforcing or teaching students the importance of wide and reliable research, checking authors and sources, etc. Just as podcasting and blogging provides a vehicle for instructing students in copyright and fair use guidelines.
  • The Digital Divide Network is an online community of educators and policy makers who are seeking ways to narrow the gap between the Internet haves and have-nots.
  • Use wikis as formats for subject guides . “The great thing about that,” she says, “is that librarians would be creating the wiki themselves in concert with teachers.” Invite students and teachers to annotate your catalog on a wiki . “To students, the best advice comes from other students,” she says. “You could have kids write book reviews you could add to the catalog.” Make wikis meeting places for communities inside the school . For example, create a wiki as a kind of bulletin board, a repository for information that comes from the cafeteria, the principal’s office, students, teachers, and even parents. Link librarians in your district in a collaborative enterprise . When teaching in North Carolina, Rob Lucas set up a model for such a site. His Teachers Lounge is a wiki where first-year teachers can share lesson plans. Farkas’s libsuccess.org is another fine model.

    13. 13. Podcasts
    14. 14. Podcasts <ul><li>iPod + Broadcast = Podcast </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Amateur radio </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Podcasting is the method of distributing multimedia files, such as audio programs or music videos, over the Internet using either the RSS or Atom syndication formats, for playback on mobile devices and personal computers. </li></ul></ul>
    15. 15. Why use podcasts? <ul><li>Podcasts enable students to share their knowledge and expertise with others through a creative outlet. </li></ul><ul><li>Podcasts tap into a mode of media input that is commonplace for digital natives. </li></ul><ul><li>Podcasts empower students to form relationships with the content and each other in relevant ways. </li></ul>
    16. 16. Why use podcasts? <ul><li>Podcasting is yet another way for them [students] to be creating and contributing ideas to a larger conversation, and it’s a way of archiving that contribution for future audiences to use. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Will Richardson, Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms </li></ul></ul>
    17. 17. How can podcasts be used? <ul><li>In the classroom, educators and students can use podcasts to inform others about class news, current events, and areas of interest. </li></ul><ul><li>Students can use a podcast forum to persuade their peers to help others, make a difference, or try something new. </li></ul><ul><li>Podcasts can also be used to edutain others through creative narratives . </li></ul>
    18. 18. How can podcasts be used? <ul><li>Podcasts engage students in thinking critically about their speaking fluency and communication skills. </li></ul><ul><li>The opportunity to create a podcast about what students would like to discuss and share with others is extremely motivating. </li></ul>
    19. 19. Other Enduring Benefits <ul><li>Along with the use of technology there are certain responsibilities that educators and students need to follow. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Educators need to instruct students on safe and acceptable use of technology in and outside of the classroom. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Not only do students need to learn how to appropriately research, but also how to safely and properly share information online. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Podcasts allow students to learn first hand about copyright laws and fair use issues. </li></ul></ul>
    20. 20. Jumping in with both feet . . . <ul><li>Listen to a few podcasts online </li></ul><ul><ul><li>iTunes > Source List > Podcasts > Education </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>http://www.podcastalley.com/ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>http://www.ipodder.org/ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>http://epnweb.org/ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>http://www.jakeludington.com/archives/000405.html (“Podcasting with Windows Media Player) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Get a feel for the genre </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Podcasts are not “polished” – production value is secondary to the content </li></ul></ul>

    25. 25. Wikis
    26. 26. What is a Wiki? <ul><li>A wiki is a type of website that allows users easily to add, remove, or otherwise edit and change most available content. </li></ul>
    27. 27. How is a Wiki Constructed? <ul><li>A single page in a wiki is referred to as a &quot;wiki page&quot;, while the entire body of pages, which are usually highly interconnected via hyperlinks, is &quot;the wiki“ </li></ul><ul><ul><li>in effect, a wiki is actually a very simple, easy-to-use user-maintained database for searching and creating information. </li></ul></ul>
    28. 28. Are Wikis Safe? <ul><li>Wikis are generally designed with the philosophy of making it easy to correct mistakes, rather than making it difficult to make them. </li></ul>
    29. 29. Are Wikis Safe? <ul><li>Thus while wikis are very open, they provide a means to verify the validity of recent additions to the body of pages. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The most prominent, on almost every wiki, is the &quot;Recent Changes&quot; page—a specific list numbering recent edits, or a list of all the edits made within a given timeframe. </li></ul></ul>
    30. 30. Tracking Changes
    31. 31. Tracking Changes
    32. 32. Using Wikis as a Source <ul><li>Wikipedia is as reliable as other external sources we rely on. </li></ul><ul><li>Properly written articles cite the sources, and a reader should rely on the Wikipedia article as much, but no more, than the sources the article relies on. </li></ul><ul><li>If an article doesn't cite a source, it may or may not be reliable. </li></ul><ul><li>Students should never use information in a wiki until they have checked those external sources. </li></ul>
    33. 33. What the Experts are Saying <ul><li>Wikis are helping young people develop “writing skills and social skills by learning about group consensus and compromise—all the virtues you need to be a reasonable and productive member of society.” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia </li></ul></ul>
    34. 34. What the Experts are Saying <ul><li>“ The media is controlled by people who have the resources to control it,” he says. “Wikis show that all of us have an equal opportunity to contribute to knowledge.” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Andy Garvin, head of the Digital Divide Network </li></ul></ul>
    35. 35. Ways to Use Wikis <ul><li>Use wikis as formats for subject guides. </li></ul><ul><li>Invite students and teachers to annotate your catalog on a wiki. </li></ul><ul><li>Make wikis meeting places for communities inside the school. </li></ul><ul><li>Link librarians and teachers in your district in a collaborative enterprise. </li></ul>
