Applying 2.0 ToolsA hands-on workshop
New information and communication tools appear at an ever-increasing rate. But we have no textbook for applying these impressive new tools. No established pedagogical guides. We have to work at sharing effective practice for this new landscape.
How can we apply 2.0 tools, to inspire learning and engage learners, especially as they relate to improving information fluency, promoting effective communication, and inspiring creativity? Joyce will suggest her updated list of new things essential for 21st century practice. As a group we will apply those tools to our own educational settings—our classrooms and our libraries. We will introduce a "thing", play with it a bit, and brainstorm its potential uses in our own educational setting.
