Friday 5: Will Richardson Workshop

Friday 5: Best of Will Richardson

Hi All –

On
Friday and Saturday, teachers and administrators from several area
independent schools gathered at the Francis Parker School here in
Chicago to learn from classroom blogging guru, Will Richardson. Will is
a former high school teacher and early adopter of Web 2.0 technologies,
now consulting in school districts across the country. His blog, Weblogg-ed,
is widely read by many educators. All in all, it was a productive and
enlightening workshop; this week’s list represents a handful of sites
that were discussed.

Take care,

Lucy Gray

_______

1) Gcast

Gcast is a podcast hosting service. Users can make recordings via phone amongst many other features.

2) Wikinomics

This is the accompanying web site to a popular book written by Don Tapscott
and Anthony Williams. Will recommended this business book as its
message apparently has potential implications for education.
Interestingly, the web site includes a blog and a wiki where community
members are authoring additional chapters of the book.

3) Remote Access blog by Clarence Fisher

Will
referenced Clarence’s work several times during the workshop. There’s
an interesting graphic on emerging technologies and services included
in Clarence’s May 5 post.

4) 21Classes

Will consulted on this student-friendly blogging service.

5) A Web of Connections: Why the Read/Write Web Changes Everything

Will relies on wikis for presentations nowadays, not slideware.

While browsing sites during the workshop, I found two others worth sharing that were not directly a part of the workshop:

6) Using Google Earth for Earth Science and Remote Sensing

7) Celebration of Teaching and Learning: Multimedia Resources from Thirteen/WNET and WLIW

This
conference had a great line-up of speakers. For those of us unable to
attend in person, videos of several presentations are online for
viewing.
