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.
