    5. 5. <ul><li>Real-time: See what someone else is typing, character-by-character. </li></ul><ul><li>Embeddability: Waves can be embedded on any blog or website. </li></ul><ul><li>Applications and Extensions: Developers can build their own apps within waves. </li></ul>
    6. 6. <ul><li>Wiki functionality: Anything written within a Google Wave can be edited by anyone else, because all conversations within the platform are shared. </li></ul><ul><li>Open source: The code will be open source, to foster innovation and adoption </li></ul><ul><li>Playback: You can playback any part of the wave to see what was said. </li></ul>
    7. 7. <ul><li>Natural language: Google Wave can autocorrect your spelling or auto-translate on-the-fly. </li></ul><ul><li>Drag-and-drop file sharing: No attachments; just drag your file and drop it inside Google Wave and everyone will have access. </li></ul>
    8. 9. Folders/in box and contacts Your “waves” (conversations) Contacts in this Wave Embedded media
    9. 10. Note email like tools here. The widgets also go on this toolbar so adding assessment tools, images, maps etc is simple and fast. Tags for searching for and within waves etc Colour coded folders – click Brown and get only Shakespears wave Playback the wave to see who added/edited what in real time Reply to wave, insert reply (called a ‘blip’) like a threaded discussion forum
    10. 11. The beauty of Wave is that it is Open Source and already people are using the API to create wee gadgets. THIS voting gadget for example lends itself to traffic lighting/assessment.
    11. 12. Closed note labels The screen shows the trial Wave I started just to see how I could produce a wiki like interface which students could add to easily AND also have links, pictures and so forth readily available. The link in the right hand column takes them to the webpage. The wee blue balloons are extra information. For example here the blue balloon adds a comment that the witches are also known as the Weird Sisters. You can close all the balloons to let the kids work. They can add their own comments and any other definitions, pictures etc they might wish to add. They could even copy the whole wave to their own accounts and add their own individual notes.
    12. 13. Open note label – can be short or long
    13. 14. Note Sub note Image file You can add sub notes to the notes as here with the definition of who/what Graymalkin is, further explanations about witches’ familiars and even a picture showing the witches. Any media can go here: video, pictures, weblinks etc. Will try wallwisher and so on later this week.
    14. 15. Image in full (looks like Cooliris?)
    15. 16. Map – can be resized and move to show another location
    16. 17. Vocabulary/ stage directions etc
    17. 18. <ul><li>Organizing events </li></ul><ul><li>Keep a single copy of ideas, suggested itinerary, menu and RSVPs, rather than using many different tools. Use gadgets to add weather, maps and more to the event.  </li></ul>
    18. 19. <ul><li>Meeting notes </li></ul><ul><li>Prepare a meeting agenda together, share the burden of taking notes and record decisions so you all leave on the same page (we call it being on the  same  wave). Team members can follow the minutes in real time, or review the history using Playback. The conversation can continue in the wave long after the meeting is over.  </li></ul>
    19. 20. <ul><li>Group reports and writing projects </li></ul><ul><li>Collaboratively work in real time to draft content, discuss and solicit feedback all in one place rather than sending email attachments and creating multiple copies that get out of sync.  </li></ul>
    20. 21. <ul><li>Brainstorming </li></ul><ul><li>Bring lots of people into a wave to brainstorm - live concurrent editing makes the quantity of ideas grow quickly! It is easy to add rich content like videos, images, URLs or even links to other waves. Discussion ensues. Etiquettes form. Then work together to distill down to the good ideas.  </li></ul>
    21. 22. <ul><li>Photo sharing </li></ul><ul><li>Drag and drop photos from your desktop into a wave. Share with others. Use the slideshow viewer. Everyone on the wave can add their photos, too. It is easy to make a group photo album in Google Wave.  </li></ul>
    22. 23. <ul><li>Security </li></ul><ul><li>Reliability </li></ul><ul><li>Changes to pricing - will it always be free? </li></ul><ul><li>Privacy </li></ul><ul><li>Learning curve </li></ul><ul><li>Offline access </li></ul><ul><li>Some features may be blocked by company network </li></ul><ul><li>What are your concerns? </li></ul>
