Blogs,Wikis, RSS, Message Boards...is your head spinning yet? There are so many new technology tools we could use if we just knew what they were! Karen Janowski from Teaching Every Student shared this video on her blog recently. It is called Wiki's in Plain English produced by The Common Craft Show, sense-making for the masses.
We have been doing more and more collaboration in the schools: writing progress notes together, teaming up to develop student goals and joining forces during evaluations. If you asked anyone, they would say email has been a good way to share and plan. That may be true in some cases, but watching this will make you rethink that notion. The video is under four minutes long, which is not even close to the time you will save when you start to use this technology tool with your colleagues.
