Workshops 4th and 5th June 2007

4th and 5th June 2007 Programme
Four workshops are available to you early in June 2007 ... again, all with a Web 2.0 and Teaching & Learning Themes, details of each are below.
Venue: Computer Lab 1 @ Technology Centre, Hwa Chong Institution, 661 Bukit Timah Road, Singapore 269734 ... you should have already received your map from Synergyst.
You can download a flier with more details at
or visit the Synergyst (Singapore organisers) website ...

One of the advantages of Web 2.0, apart from being a powerful set of online tools for teaching and learning, is that it is very low cost and in many cases free providing you have an internet connection. In the workshops below all the applications, software and websites we use will be free.

It is hoped to have a hands-on session in these workshops where you can try some of the applications ... but that, of course, will depend on the internet connection behaving itself.

If you are attending any of the workshops then I would be grateful if you could do just one thing before you arrive .... introduce yourself (e.g. name, where you working now, what age students do you work with, do you already use the internet) and also say what you hope to achieve at the workshop.
Just click on the word "Comment" underneath the workshop you are attending below and fill in the form that should come up.
Listen to the intro from Chris here ....

All of these workshops have the added benefit of supporting the ideals behind the Singapore "Teach Less Learn More" initiative ... i.e. being able to empower students even more.
I look forward to working with you.

Hi! I am Benny from Millennia Institute. I teach 'A'-level History. I want to utilize some of the ideas and teaching methodologies from the workshops in my classroom teaching. As I am not very proficient in IT, I am looking forward to hands-on practices for developing my IT capacity.

I am Chai Wee, pupils call me Mr. Neo. I am from Anderson Secondary, main teaching subjects are History and Geography. My audience in class are mostly Sec 3-4s kids(15 - 16 years old.
I signed up to get me on to Web 2.0. I don't want to go the way of the dinosaurs, in the eyes of the kids.... extinct in the IT sense.

Hi! I am Premala. I am with the Middle School Library at the Singapore American School. I am interested in learning the new ideas so as to be equipped with the knowledge when dealing with the students in the library. We would be introducing audio podcasting and I would like to be familiar with it in order to assist users.

Wats up... Im Shah, from Anglo Chinese School (Barker Road). I am the IT manager there, Dont teach but train teachers to teach better. So this might be a good tool and platform to use...have a slight blogging knowledge.. but my point of view is that blogging is a virtual diary or a space where you share thoughts and comments
