    • Web 2.0: Tools Social Networking and more
      Use those onlinetools!
      Presented by:
      Mary Beth Orrange
      NCSPOD 2010
    • What is Web 2.0?
      Wikipedia: The term Web 2.0 is commonly associated with web applications that facilitate interactive information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design, and collaboration on the World Wide Web.
      Wikipedia is a prime example of a Web 2.0 tool.
    • Web 2.0 tools
      Keeping up with the revolution in social networking can seem overwhelming.  This presentation will detail a few Web 2.0 tools others have found useful for personal, professional, and classroom use.
      The Basics:
    • Do you have a FaceBook account?
    • Facebook.com
      Personal: Great for sharing photos and keeping in touch with a lot of friends at once
      Professional: Keep it separate from personal
      Classroom: They’re on FaceBook; make use of it. It can replace the traditional discussion forum.
      Today, over 500 million people worldwide are active on Facebook each month, including 150 million in the United States, with over 500,000 new people joining each and every day
    • Facebook.com
      You need to register and approve those who can view your information.
      You can become a fan of various sites
      There’s a lot of information on FaceBook you can get an account, post nothing personal, and access relevant public information from your account.
      Or set-up a Facebook group for students or staff that does not require “friending.”
      For example, check out ECC’s site
    • Do you Tweet?
    • Twitter.com
      Personal: With 140 characters maximum it has a very specific purpose
      Professional: Good way to share/find relevant websites and posted materials
      Classroom: Can efficiently connect with a whole class at once – class cancelled or error on assignment. Difficult to get started for classes.
    • Twitter.com
      You can access public information on Twitter without registering but to follow individuals and be followed you need to register and create an account.
      You can prevent folks from following you but it’s after-the-fact.
      Twitter provides a way to participate in conference activities without actually attending a conference.
    • YouTube.com
      Personal: For enjoyment, entertainment, or sharing
      Professional: Lectures, interviews or items in the news in your field
      Classroom: Have students find and share videos relevant to the course – post links in a discussion in your course site for example. Post links for them to watch.
      Many folks post their entire course on YouTube so there’s a wealth of information to be viewed.
