Emerging Technologies PSE - 3 views

  •  
    It really doesn't seem all that long ago that Powerpoint was THE new, cool thing to use in teaching. These days it seems that 80% of the time a teacher starts to use it the students get glazed over eyes. It is often too easy for us as teachers to take on a new technology but never develop the skill beyond the basics. Could this be the future of online learning as well?!? It's just too hard to keep up with all the new stuff! But instead of using that as an excuse to never try new things, we should regularly see what is available and incorporate one or two new things at a time. ESPECIALLY if we are going to be effective online teachers. This PSE allows the user to search for lists, explanations, and tutorials of current and up-and-coming technologies on the online-learning scene.

    "Classroom 2.0 is a free, community-supported network. We especially hope that those who are "beginners" will find this a supportive comfortable place to start being part of the digital dialog. " While this isn't is a Web 2.0 tool, it looks like it might be a helpful group for beginners like me. Living in Laos, I like how international the group looks. Does anyone else have suggestions of this kind of support group for beginners?

    A tool for teachers
  •  
    Resources like Classroom 2.0 are what a lot of my "beginners" would benefit from. A community supported network aimed at easing one into the technology discussion and learning some cool resources along the way. I encourage teachers who want to find some level of comfort with technology to engage it through sites like Classroom 2.0

    Audacity is an awesome (and free) tool for basic recording, editing, and playback. I use it to record my choral rehearsals, record individual singers during private lessons, and create practice tracks that can be posted online so students can learn and/or reinforce their part in a piece of music we are rehearsing in class. The interface is relatively simple and the options for the music classroom (or even the general education classroom) are numerous!
