As more students, including our Learning21/Media 21 10th Honors World Literature/Composition students, use Wikispaces to create learning portfolios and online projects, we are building our library of “how to” instructions. Take a look at the latest handouts and instructional videos to help you embed content on your Wikispaces pages:

As we work with you, our students, to harness the power of RSS and to explore options for sharing web resources with classmates, we have found the Google toolbar to be a powerful tool to support these endeavors. While the Google toolbar has many features we like, we especially love how the Google toolbar allows you to have an easier option for subscribing to a RSS feed either to your iGoogle page or your Google Reader account. Although the Google toolbar is sadly not available yet for Google Chrome (yes, we are scratching our heads over that one, too), you can get it for Internet Explorer or Firefox. You can also learn more by watching these videos:

Here is a topic of special interest from Classroom 2.0; if you can’t attend live, the session will be recorded, and you can watch at a time that works for you!
Date: Sat., August 22, 2009
Time: 9:00am Pacific/10:00am Mountain/11:00am Central/12:00pm Eastern

This Saturday, August 22nd, Kim Caise, Lorna Costantini and Peggy George will be hosting another Classroom 2.0 LIVE show. As an extension to the Classroom 2.0 community, Classroom 2.0 “LIVE” shows are opportunities to gather with other educators in real-time events, complete with audio, chat, desktop sharing, and sometimes even video. A Google calendar of upcoming shows is available at http://live.classroom20.com/calendar.html. If you haven’t used Elluminate before, we encourage you to view this tutorial to prepare for the Elluminate session: Elluminate tutorial video.
The topic this Saturday will be “Web 2.0 Start Pages as RSS Readers and other Ramblings” with special guest Shamblesguru aka Chris Smith. Please join us as Shamblesguru shares examples of start pages, how to create and ways to use them as RSS readers. More information and session details are at http://live.classroom20.com. If you’ve never participated in a live webinar, don’t be afraid to come and observe. ‘Dip your toes in’ the conversations until you feel comfortable enough to “jump into the conversations with both feet”! We want to encourage “experienced Web 2.0 users” to join us by contributing and extending the conversation by sharing real-life examples and tips/suggestions.
On the Classroom 2.0 LIVE! site (http://live.classroom20.com) you’ll find the recordings for our recent “Exploring AllaboutExplorers.com” show with special guests Gerald Aungst and Lauren Zucker. Click on the “Archive” tab to view recordings.
Special thanks to our sponsor, Elluminate, for providing the forum that allows us to do this!
