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!
and talked with three of the staff about what they hoped to do at this workshop

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.
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.
