9:00 am - 9:30 am Getting Ready to Play

There will be a lot going on today and we'll need to get organized. I'm looking for a few good educators; we'll need:


• a CC, Chat Captain for our live chat space.

• a DC, Designer-in-Chief to keep our collaborative Google Doc pretty and well organized. (You're invited to join the doc now.)

• a TQC, Twitter Questions Commando, it'll be your job to interupt us; this is not for a shy person. You'll need to manage multiple tabs in your browser too.

• a 4C, Creative Commons Copyright Captain to help oversee our game of Presentation Tennis. (You're invited to the presentation too.) [model]

• an SC, Shutterbug-in-Chief to keep us snapin' so we capture our day together in pictures!



9:30 am - 10:30 pm What Can I Do Now ... web 2.0 pedagogy

A workshop on how to think about using the functionality of new web-based tools pedagogically. How teachers can “rejig” their lessons to take advantage of social media and free tools available on the Internet? Emphasizing pedagogy over tools, we’ll look at research based approaches to using flickr, wikis, Google Maps, and mashups of a great many more tools.


10:45 pm - 12:00 pm What Can I Do Now ... links, tags, and rss

A workshop highlighting two case studies using flickr and pbworks are illustrated. We'll also look at a new spin on assessment and how to involve students deeply and meaningfully in the design of assessment rubrics.


12:00 pm - 1:00 pm Lunch


1:00 pm - 2:00 pm Developing Expert Voices

We will learn how to leverage Google Docs, blogs, SlideShare.net and the internet to develop "expert voices" and foster creativity in our students. The model shown can be easily transferred to other domains and disciplines. We'll also see how the assessment design process applied to the flickr assignment can be reapplied in another context.


2:15 pm - 3:30 pm Presentation Tennis

Time for some hands on applications of what we've been learning ... and it'll be your turn to take the stage.
