Spreading the word

I’ve had the opportunity to share the “news” about social software/web 2.0/Read Write Web (choose your favourite term)  to some groups other than classroom teachers. In the past month I’ve done two workshops for our provincial teachers’ association. One to the local teacher association groups and the other to the special subject councils.

The message is virtually the same but it’s nice to discuss the use of these tools outside the classroom application.
This week I also begin a series of 3 workshops on digital photography as part of our community courses.

The fact that these topics and tools have great use for adults in everyday life, once again brings validation to the importance of them to be explored and used with our students.

    The Fine Arts Consultant for our school division attended your subject council presentation this weekend. She is very excited about many points in your presentation – especially wikispaces. We had done some work with wiki’s with one of her drama classes last year and she is now exploring how to use a wiki with her Fine Arts Committee. I was delighted to see her questioning, seeing possiblities and wanting to know more. She pointed me to your wiki for the workshop and I looking forward to exploring it further
