(W9) Create a Social Website for your own class (or family)
Fri 11th Sept 1:45-5:00
A Social Network for your class
In this session you will create a website (social network) for your own class that allows you and your students to communicate, share resources, videos and other digital media ... all in a controlled environment. (could also be used for other groups .... family, after school activities, sports clubs, hobbyists etc.)
We will look briefly at some of the established online social networks designed for both young and older students (5-18) and see how they may be of use to you and your students.
We will end the session exploring the future with some 3D online virtual worlds, such as Second Life, that are certain to become an important tool in teaching and leaning in future years.
