Wow! Web 2.0

Wow!  This constantly evolving new generation of the internet is rather overwhelming!  Wiki’s, Blogging, YouTube, social networking, social bookmarking, RSS, Google Reader, Open Source software, Twitter, Synchronous communication. . .   There is so much going on.  Many of these technologies have become massively used world-wide phenomenon.  This is the world of the Web 2.o – the 2nd generation of the internet.  So many important technologies are evolving and converging so quickly and becoming so powerful, it can certainly seem overwhelming.  

It is difficult and consuming to keep current with all new technologies.  It can be confusing and frustrating to determine which technologies are most useful to you and to your purpose.  I am fortunate to be enrolled in a course called EC&I 831 that is helping me sort out the uses of many new computer technologies related to curriculum and instruction.

The Videos page of this blog was created to inform my students of many of these developing technologies, and to help clear the haze that is created by today’s information overloaded internet.
