The 2006 K-12 Online Conference provides outstanding opportunities for free, collaborative, accessible professional learning for educators around the globe. As you know we are participating in this very important on line Conference. You can find us in Classroom 2.0.. The presenters are Vance Stevens, Nelba Quintana, Doris Molero, Saša Sirk, and Rita Zeinstejer and our presentation is
“Motivating Student Writers by Fostering Collaboration through Tagging and Aggregating”
When describing our presentation you can read...
The presenters play with boundaries through the simple expedient of having student bloggers in different countries tag their blog posts with the unique tag term writingmatrix. Searching on that tag in Technorati, the student bloggers in four locations in three different countries have managed to locate one another’s posts, leave comments for one another, and have subsequently interacted in other ways as well. The presenters explain how they started the project and how it has branched into other online and even face to face activities involving the students in the participant countries. The presentation is made not only through the voices of the presenters, but with the students themselves lending their voices through their blogs and videos.
