School Board presentation about Web 2.0

I was going to have 30 minutes today with the School Board Technology Subcommittee to discuss the ideas of Web 2.0.  However, the meeting has been postponed.  So, now, if you read this, what do you think?  Any other ideas?

 I wanted to make sure they knew what Web 2.0 was, learn about some of the applications, and understand the importance of educating all students and teachers about the positive uses of the Internet.  Here is my outline (also on my wiki):

  1. Quick Internet Quiz
  2. Handout: What is Web 2.0?

3. My Web 2.0 Journey

4. Thoughts: The key is to educate our students on the best uses of the Web:
· There should be some type of training on a yearly basis about the Internet and Web for all students in Clovis Unified.
· There should be some type of training on a yearly basis for all teachers in Clovis.
· There should be some type of blogging, posting guidelines for district.

5. Handout: “Blog Guidelines”. Warlick “Blog Rules” Article. Doug Johnson’s Blog Post

    Good overview. Excellent resources. I hope you get to go ahead with it. What about RSS? Would you be introducing the idea of feed readers or not?

    Hi Rob,

    Sorry this is probably too late. Good list and am flattered to be on it.

    I was impressed with the McArthur report, Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century that argues for students needing access to social networking sites if they are to participate in society. Good, credible, arguments there.

    All the best,
