Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms – Will Richardson

The internet has revolutionized many things, spanning from how we eat popcorn to how we view cats (though if you’re like me, no amount of transmission lines, wireless signals, or optical fiber could change how I feel about cats.) Among the many things the internet has completely reworked is reading and writing: there are now modes of written information that can be viewed, recreated, and theorized that didn’t exist before.  Teachers have tapped into those modes as unique tools for learning integrating everything from blogs to Facebook in the classroom. If you are interested in diving into what the internet can offer for you, this book provides simple, how-to steps for teaching with:
  • Weblogs
  • Wikis
  • Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds and aggregators
  • Social bookmarking
  • Online photo galleries
  • Facebook, MySpace, Twitter
