I finally completed the 4th part of the presentation Chris Penna, Dawn Fallik, and I gave at the Lilly-East conference back in April 2009. Our topic revolved around using web 2.0 tools in the classroom. We used the Student Multimedia Design Center at the University of Delaware to make the presentation more of a workshop.
We created a Google Doc with links to all of our presentation material.
Part 1 is the introduction and a quick review of the use of Twitter in the classroom.
In part 2, Dawn Fallik explains how she gets her students to create podcasts through their cellphones.
Chris Penna explains his use of Google Docs to stimulate collaborative writing in his class in part 3.
I created the part 4 after the event since we ran short on time (we spent too much time getting people started using the tools). As the Sakai Project Leader, I had to shamelessly plug my LMS in there, of course 😉
I think Dawn and Chris did an excellent job at explaining the value of using web 2.0 tools in for their courses. If you have encountered faculty practices that are worth replicating (the new term for “best practices”), please add URLs to the comments below!
