What Makes a Web 2.0 Application?
10
Web 2.0 What Is It Really?
  • Web 2.0 is about connections
  • The Web 2.0 revolution puts people first
  • Web 2.0 is about allowing people to manipulate
    data, not just retrieve data
  • Web 2.0 is about doing stuff on the Web that
    can't done in any other medium
  • Students as content creators

11
Rich User Experience
  • Easy to use
  • Build social networks
  • Rich user interface
  • Functions like a traditional application
  • User created data and owns their own data
  • Providing a service, not a product
  • Encourage user contribution (reviews, comments)
  • Make it easy to re-use and re-mix
  • Customer self-service Community and sense of
    ownership

12
  • What Can Social Networking Do For Me?

13
  • A social network service focuses on building
    online communities of people who share interests
    and/or activities, or who are interested in
    exploring the interests and activities of others.
    Most social network services are web based and
    provide a variety of ways for users to interact,
    such as e-mail and instant messaging services.

  • Chris Hughes, today only 25 years old, helped
    create two of the most successful startups in
    modern history, Facebook and the Barack Obama
    campaign.

  • Classroom 2.0 - This is where most of my
    networking beyond my regional area started for
    me. I joined this Ning network early this year
    and found that the sharing created richer
    opportunities to find out what was happening in
    our Read/Write Web. http//www.classroom20.com/

Yack Pack
  • Internet-based voice communication tool that
    works a lot like voicemail for the Web. Users
    define a "pack"--a group of individuals they want
    to communicate with--and then record messages for
    the group, an individual, or even a subset within
    the group using a standard computer microphone.
    When members of the pack log in, they can listen
    and respond to the messages.

  • Hello INTERACT Ambassadors! I am excited to
    begin our new online social network. Please use
    this site for all of our communications. Your
    ideas and imagination should make this site be
    and do everything we all want it to. As soon as
    this site is complete we will add new ambassadors
    in India ,Canada and Mexico. Let's all get into
    good habits. Be responsible, respectful and
    mindful that many people will be reading and
    looking at what you publish. Edit what you post
    and think about what you are putting out there in
    public! Choose your screen name wisely as it
    directly reflects who you are and how you will be
    representing yourself to your peers locally and
    around the world. I want you all to know that I
    am sincerely honored to be working with such a
    passionate and talented group of young people. I
    can't wait to see what we all do together!! Ms

The Teachers Life Nation

  • Hi Howie, I'm a founder cum chairperson of a
    school. I run this school for poor family
    children. It lies in Bhaktapur Nepal, land of mt.
    Everest. Shantideep Adarsh Vidhyasadan is one of
    the English Medium Schools established in 1998
    with 13 students in a backwarded countryside of
    Bhaktapur district of Nepal. The name of the
    village is Bageshwori (altitude approx. 1500
    metre). It lies in the eastern part of Bhaktapur
    district. It was established when the parents
    were not so aware of their children's education.
    We (school Management) had to struggle a lot to
    achieve the sympathy of the parents / villagers.
    They weren't convinced in the very beginning and
    didn't send their children to this school
    thinking that we can't run the school
    continuously for the long run. As a founder
    director, I tried my best to build up and uplift
    the situation of the school. By the end of that
    year, we were able to impress them showing the
    out put of our teaching techniques and
    methodologies. As a result the number of students
    reached 78 in the beginning of the second year.
    The number of students has been increasing
    gradually. Now we have 137 students. But we can't
    enroll all the new comers due to the
    infrastructural and financial problems. We hope
    we can fulfill the need and desire of our
    parents/ villagers (target groups) if your
    contribution on the infrastructural or/and
    academic sectors can be entertained. Hope you
    like to share your ideas for making school better
    and facilitating school children. Hope u'll add a
    brick in the process of bringing school age
    children to school and check drop out. If you
    like to chat with me and get more information u
    can get my skype address govinda.prasad.panthy hop
    e u like helping poor family children.

Twitter
  • What is it ?????

65
  • Today, I thought I'd follow up by sharing the
    sweet, funny, interesting results of a Twitter
    experiment. It's
  • Conference in Las Vegas. The topic was Web 2.0,
    with all of its free-speech, global-collaboration
    ramifications.
  • So I flipped out of PowerPoint and typed this to
    my Twitter followers "I need a cure for
    hiccups... RIGHT NOW! Help?"

66
I hit Enter. I told the audience that we would
start getting replies in 15 seconds, but it
didn't even take that long

Social Bookmarking 101 http//newtools.pbwiki.com/
SocialBookmarking101 David S. Jakes, Community
High School District 99 Downers Grove, IL  60516
dave_at_jakesonline.org
  • I use del.icio.us and furl.net extensively.  The
    most important use of these tools for me is that
    I can build an online personal library related to
    my interests, that I can call upon when I need
    access to information.  That information, because
    it is located and organized into these two
    onlines sites, follows me-wherever I have a
    connection to the Web, I can connect to my
    personal information resources.  With the
    proliferation in handheld devices, this access is
    never more easy.

72
What Social Bookmarking Does for Students
  • When teachers have a collection of course sites
    as part of a social bookmark group
  • Gives students a live link to select instead of
    fumbling through typing a long URL into the
    address bar.
  • Lets students choose from a variety of acceptable
    links, making for productive research that still
    allows for variability.

73
Lesson Plans Ideas http//wiki.classroom20.com/S
ocialBookmarksLessonPlans
  • Social Bookmarks Lesson Plans
  • Submitted by Sue R., aka "Bookwyrmish" Level
    Intermediate or Middle School (depending on
    student experience). Objectives Students will
    apply technology tools and peripherals to support
    personal productivity, group collaboration, and
    learning throughout the curriculum. Students
    will select and use appropriate tools and
    technology resources to accomplish a variety of
    tasks and solve problems Materials Internet
    access, a browser with del.icio.us plugin
    installed, a group del.icio.us account and group
    password, a research problem.

74
Whats Next for Social Bookmarking?
  • Social bookmarkingsharing lists of Web finds
    online to be accessed from anywhere, by
    anyonehas been a great tool for librarians to
    gather, organize, and disseminate the best of the
    Net. Though an improvement over storing such
    files on a computer, bookmarks stored online are
    still a digitized version of the classic print
    index or directory. Like so many reference tools,
    they are great for librarian use, but dont
    always work so well for our patrons or students.
    There is, however, a new breed of tools emerging
    that can provide a better end-user experience.

75
Del.icio.us
  • Del.icio.us - This social bookmarking engine
    serves a very basic function (online
    bookmarking), but it connects people to websites

Webnotes https//www.webnotes.net/Register/BasicRe
gistration.aspx?inviteCodeslj
  • http//www.webnotes.net/
  • This tool feels like it was custom designed for
    use by librarians with support for Web clipping
    text, organizing clips into folders, and
    publishing HTML or PDF reports of clips and
    notes. The tool works best through a lightweight
    toolbar that installs on either Firefox or
    Internet Explorer browsers. For schools that
    cannot download, an available bookmarklet
    provides full functionality with no installation
    required. The full toolbar adds additional tools
    such as a sidebar explorer that lets you quickly
    review saved annotations or place new research
    into folders. Reports are generated from the
    contents of one or more folders, so it would be
    best to create a new folder for each new question
    or project for easy publication. WebNotes is
    designed for research, and as such focuses on
    organizing text from sites. It does not offer
    clipping of images at this time.

78
For image clipping along with text, there are
other options such as the popular and powerful
Evernote or the newer Thumbtack from Microsoft.
Both of these sites are built around a page
layout onto which clips of text and/or images are
placed a feature that is certainly slick, but
also more confusing than the simple WebNotes
interface. Evernote and Thumbtack publish
collections of clips to a site, but only Evernote
has a printable format like WebNotes.

E-mail from a teacher
  • Howie,
  • Thank you for keeping in touch. I have to share
    one thing that I have done this week. Out of all
    of the suggestions you shared last week I was
    most intrigued with the ePals program.  I
    immediately registered and posted a profile. I
    literally got goosebumps when I sent my first
    international email-----which was to Greece. Over
    the last few days I have heard back from schools
    in Japan, Germany, and Colombia.  I cannot even
    begin to tell you how excited my students are
    about this project! Thank you for telling me
    about it.  I will share more projects as we go.

Exploring Social Media Social Media Tools

Definition
  • Social media are works of user-created video,
    audio, text or multimedia that are published and
    shared in a social environment, such as a blog,
    wiki or video hosting site. www.capilanou.ca/help/

  • 2) Bloglines - This is my aggregator of choice
    still, despite trying many others. While Google
    Reader may be newer and shinier, its still
    missing one feature that I deem to be important
    in the world of Web 2.0, and thats the ability
    to connect people together. With Bloglines, you
    can see who else has subscribed to a blog you are
    a fan of, and follow the trail along to see what
    they read as well. I find it invaluable to be
    able to see what people like Will Richardson and
    Bernie Dodge are reading, which really sets
    Bloglines apart.
