This is the presentation I gave yesterday at the VITTA conference here in Melbourne. It was hard to gauge how it was received; it seemed like there were a fair few people there who may not yet be convinced about the benefits of Web 2.0.My message was pretty simple; if you want to understand how to effectively use Web 2.0, then start reading blogs written by the people who are talking about how it is best utilised in the classroom. In particular, my message was about using the tools for connective purposes. There are pages in the wiki I have created in my name that support this presentation. The page about blogs contains links to an array of great teacher (and non-teacher) bloggers who extend our thinking. It’s by no means a complete list, and I envisage adding to it over time.
