This is a wow presentation that rattles off ideas for researching and telling one's own digital story one after another. Starts with search techniques: Sculpture by the Sea web site has a twitter feed, people carry mobile devices, can give opinions, take pictures, tag them. Google search gives you a feed. Blog search for people's opinions, technorati, Twitter using hash tags, photos tagged on Flickr, mapping service to show locations (cell phones geotag photos) - shows in screen cast with embedded web cam how to add RSS feeds to help you feed search results to you; e.g. to a Netvibes page. Talks about sending students out to use phones to take pictures, get recordings, videos. Presentation: Voicethread, Animoto,, makes panoramas from single photos, for creating ARG presentations, Google forms to collect data and present it in spreadsheet, charts, etc (does conditional branching)

K-12 kids perform somewhere over web 2 oh, and they're off to see the wonderful wizard of apps. Along the way they hit all the major issues, ethical use, privacy, reputation (use people searches like to check yourself out), digital footprints (, fair use (remix), creative commons (where to find them: Flickr,, citations (Noodlebib,,,, research 2.0 (and aggregation of results via RSS, Glogster, Google Squared, Google News Timeline) Wolfram Alpha, databases and various widgets, Pageflakes, Google tools and apps, evaluation of information online, plagiarism, digital storytelling (, Voicethread, Animoto, Wordle, video tools such as flip cams), PLNs (Twitter, Nings e.g. Classroom 2.0, Diigo,, starting PPT blank ... just to mention a few. The slide show has 202 slides, almost all with links.

this presentation will shed light on a model that demonstrates relationships between emerging tools and learning theories and between Personal Learning Environments (PLEs), Personal Learning Networks (PLNs), and ePortfolios. By using Google Sites as a main dashboard that “mashes up” multiple Google Apps like Blogger, Youtube, Google Reader, Google Maps, Google Docs, and iGoogle into an ePortfolio, students can build and organize their own Personal Learning Environment (PLE) simultaneously with “building bridges” through their Personal Learning Network (PLN)–all while supporting e-portfolio authentic assessment. One last word of caution: “Googlios: A 21st-Century Approach to Teaching, Learning, and Assessment” seeks to ignite an educational renaissance.

Web 2.0 is more than a set of technology tools. It reflects the democratization of information, the power of collaboration and the personalization we hope to find in any school. Taking full advantage of Web 2.0 technology requires more than hardware and software, it requires adopting a Web 2.0 culture. In 1996, New Technology High School in Napa, California opened with a vision of reinventing high school for a new age. At the core of their approach was a culture, curriculum and technology foundation that empowered the student to take more control over their learning and the school. New Tech High is now a national model for school transformation with a network of over 40 21st Century schools based on those principals. Learn the specific strategies and technologies used by the New Technology Network to create a culture that is more student (user) centered in the classroom and encourage collaboration between students, teachers and schools.

This document started out as a set of notes on the Andrew Keen / David Weinberger debates which I had planned to use in preparation for an interview with Mark Pegrum Jan 31, 2010. In that interview, Mark raised the question "What are the key literacies we and our students need in a digital world?" Answers to that question came to me in a set of podcasts from the K-12 Online Conference 2009. The annotated list (this document) and links to the presentation can be found at (and theoretically at though they haven't all propogated that far yet? (not sure)

If you wonder what a “well-educated” student will look like in our constantly shifting, interconnected, globalized society; if you want to know what teachers and administrators need to know about teaching and learning in the 21st Century; if you are ready to learn about newer, more effective ways of teaching that engage, challenge and inspire students; this is the session for you. In this video I will present a vision for teaching and learning in the 21st century that is evolving as I explore the intersection of pedagogy and the digital culture. There are twelve critical bridges that span competing conditions I have experienced that we must all acknowledge, experience and understand if we are to move toward the emerging new story of learning.

Presentation Title: Building on Analog Success with 2.0 Technology

Presentation Description: This presentation will focus on an established successful 6th grade capstone project called “The Biggest Dig.” In the 5th year of this research project, myself and Jon Greenberg, the Humanities teacher, collaborated to modernize the project using web 2.0 technologies such as wikis and online note taking software.

This video includes an overview of the project, review the tools used, how we decided to transition certain project components to web 2.0 tools, student feedback, and finally, a review of the final product and our assessments.

The goal of this presentation is to demonstrate that teacher collaboration and sharing of ideas is a fundamental component to enhancing already established curriculum. The idea that you do not have to throw out everything you have done in the analog world to adapt to web 2.0 world is our central theme.

Presentation Title: Keeping Literacy in 21st Century Literacy

Presentation Description: In this session I outline the movement towards multiple literacies and 21st century literacies. Within this framework I present concrete strategies and methods for pursing the traditional notion of literacy – reading and writing fluency – in an online context. In particular I hope to show how “think alouds” and other literacy modeling strategies can be enhanced by Web 2.0 technologies like Diigo for social bookmarking and Screentoaster for easy screen capture and content delivery. Part of this enhancement comes from the ability to customize instruction to individual student needs and interests. This presentation is a relatively equal mix of teaching theory, literacy pedagogy, and technology integration.
