The vast array of free online tools that allow users to combine images, video, music, voice and text have spurred a wave of digital storytelling as the ancient art of weaving a good yarn is reinvented for the digital age. While I was experimenting with some of these e-tools, I thought it would be interesting to find ways for students to explore literature and their own beliefs from different points of view. I have selected two assignments I used with advanced-level students that worked well to improve writing and pronunciation skills: character blogs and This I Believe recordings.
I have used blogs in my classes in various ways over the last seven years. This time my goal was to have students crawl inside a piece of literature and write a blog post from a character's point of view.

Presenter: Kelley Connolly & Jon Greenberg
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.

Elizabeth Hanson-Smith sent an invitation to members on the Webheads in Action list to participate online in the Colloquium on Global Communication for the The Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia in Moscow
I accepted to give a presentation together with Sus Nyrop from Denmark, Cristina Costa in England, Rita Zeinstejer from Argentina and Ronaldo Lima Jr and Erika Cruvinel from Brasilia. After a series of mail exchanges, I set up a wiki , where we all gradually added our information, links resources and slides. I also used the presenters’ abstracts to compose the Wordle image that appears on the front page and which Elizabeth added at the bottom on the other pages as a sort of a logo.
