Sharing our Work With Our Communities
I am very happy to have been asked to participate in IL-TCE, and look forward to the opportunity to meet, and learn from, teachers and administrators attending the event.
My workshop, and my talks, at this years IL-TCE will focus on how schools can utilize Web 2.0 technologies to tell their stories, old and new, utilizing the web to facilitate this conversation. Tools such as Word Press, Instiki, Flickr, del.icio.us, Google Earth, and RSS now make it very easy for educators to inform and enliven their instruction and to communicate about that work. From my experience, there is exciting and powerful work taking place in schools throughout the world. Web 2.0 technologies give teachers, principals and and superintendents, the power to share learning resources and ideas, and the opportunity to tell their stories.
