The New Web 2.0 (public)

The New Web (2.0) supporting Teaching & Learning: Blogging, Podcasting and More
15 March 2007 9:00am–4:00pm
venue: Singapore Conference Hall, SHRI, Summer Room, Level 1
public transport details and parking

During this session we looked at the "Web 2.0" (pronounced ‘web two point oh’), also known as the ‘read/write web’, which is an excellent solution to first introduce teachers and students to online and elearning tools. They are low costs, low risks and easy to learn.

We also shared some ideas about how Blogs, Wikis and Podcasts can be integrated into teaching and learning ... and demonstrate how easy and fast it is to set up at least one of these in real time!
Please listen to this (spoken) welcome message





On Tuesday 13th March I visited Millennia Institute
and talked with three of the staff about what they hoped to do at this workshop
... to listen to this interview (Podcast) go to http://shambles.podbean.com


Well ... it's all over now and I'm back in Thailand
I really enjoyed the day and, from the evaluation sheets, it seems you did to ... although the room was maybe a little crowded. You already know that working with students who are responsive, self motivated and keen to learn is a real pleasure .... and so it is with teacher training as well ... and you all fitted this description.
Maybe we will cross paths again one day ... but more importantly I hope your students and colleagues benefit from your new skills and knowledge in the future.

Links:
You can view the final presentation ... pictures of you with music .. online at YouTube just go to www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMz4wfTvLrY ... you are able to add comments if you wish.
and lots of web 2.0 information on Shambles at www.shambles.net/web2 (of course)
The still pictures I took during the session can all be seen at "Flickr" ... go to www.flickr.com/photos/csmith/sets/72157594586029802

I have never blogged nor podcast.I am afraid I might have difficulty following with the lesson as I am not IT savvy but you can say I am willing to ressurect my "gungho" spirit to try and keep abreast with this new thingy

Hi!I'm from Millennia Institute. Thought it'd be a good start to understand my students better by familiarising myself with the technology which they seem to be so comfortable with while I'm simply clueless about!

I'm Shirlyn from Millennia Institute. Looking forward to learning how to blog and doing podcasting so that I can better interact with my students.

Sharie, a General Paper tutor from Millennia Institute. I used to blog using Open Diary six years ago. However, I abandoned my blog after someone hacked into my account. I'm quite apprehensive about blogging. However, this is a good way to get students who are always online to keep updated about homework, read and discuss current affairs, especially with links to the webpages. I hope to learn more about attaching links to webpages and copyright issues so that I won't infringe any.

Hi. I am Vara. I've been blogging since 2005. Wouldn't say I'm totally new to cyberspace - I do chat - but there are areas I have not explored that I would like to like podcasting and you tube.... Watched a video on Web2.0 recently and am intrigued.

Hello. Jamaliah from Millennia Institute here. I don't really blog and know nothing about podcasts. I'm going for this course to really see how I can utilise the technology in teaching and also to learn the technology.

Hi, Time's Person for the year is YOU - referring to the power of individuals to create,interact and share knowledge through the platforms provided by Web2.0. Hopefully this course will shed some light into this new area.

I have no experience in Blogging or podcasting. After visit this page, I have created a google account and a blogspot but I am not sure about what (and properly how) to put in this site yet.
