These are the opening question of my session… with participant answers. Good stuff!
What is a blog?
A web log… like a diary, it can be updated every day or every hour. Can be used to answer questions… it’s like a conversation because people can post comments.
What is the read/write web?
You used to be able to read online, but now you can respond and write things back.
What do these technologies mean for gifted students?
They can post “grades” about their teachers. :) You’re not limited to one class “room.” You’ve got kids talking to other kids a continent away!
