    2. YOU! <ul><li>The Person of the Year is defined as follows: </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Person of the Year is an annual issue of TIME magazine that features a profile on the man, woman, couple, group, idea, place, or machine that &quot;for better or worse, has most influenced events in the preceding year&quot; </li></ul>
    3. &quot;You,&quot; as in YouTube and MySpace, as in the World Wide Web <ul><li>Citing the explosive growth and influence of user-generated Internet content such as blogs, video-file sharing sites and social networks and digital democracy, the magazine picked us this year. </li></ul>
    4. Multi-Literate Teacher <ul><li>A multiliterate teacher understands the many ways that technology interacts and intertwines with academic and interpersonal life, and actively learns how to gain control over those aspects impacting teaching, social, and professional development. </li></ul><ul><li>Multiliterate individuals are aware of the pitfalls inherent in technology while striving for empowerment through effective strategies for first discerning and then taking advantage of those aspects of  changing technologies most appropriate to their situations. </li></ul>
    5. Multi-Literate Teacher <ul><li>These strategies include managing, processing, and interpreting a constant influx of  information, filtering what is useful, and then enhancing the learning environment with the most appropriate applications. </li></ul><ul><li>Not teaching children, but helping them learn. Using global connections to assist in that process. </li></ul>
    6. Connections <ul><li>Because the Net connects people to each other and impassions and empowers through those connections- it is the perfect tool for instruction. </li></ul>
    7. What is a Blog? Will Richardson’s video http://campus.belmont.edu/chenowit/dragonstale/WebLoggingSmall.mov A blog (or weblog ) is a website in which items are posted on a regular basis and displayed with the newest at the top. Like other media , blogs often focus on a particular subject, such as food, politics, or local news. A typical blog combines text, images , and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weblog
