I’m Presenting in Maui!

I’m with secondary teachers (mostly) in Maui learning about differentiated instruction. I’m asking these three familiar questions (participant responses are in italics):

1. What is a blog? A comment on daily activity – opinions about anything – web based interactive journal.

2. What is the read/write web? IT’S INTERACTIVE – reading and writing. How is it different from a blog?

3. What do these things mean for you and your students? Information is shared quickly… they have authentic audience. More time to think about responses. more likely to get responses. they are more confident.

Now on to the presentation:

    Admittedly, I have been using a blog as a wiki, but a sequential, “one entry every few days” wiki.

    Having said that, it is amazing to be able to track both what Google question led people to your blog, and then also to track what other entries a person goes on your blog once they are at your blog. It allows you to debug the writing and linking process in real-time. It makes writing public, and will open up new types of books.
