Day 1 Read Write Web Class
I started new class today. I got on the wrong bus and arrived 30 minutes late:( I really think this is going to be a great experience. There are many teachers with varying backgrounds taking this class. I got my first introduction to Blackboard CMS. I thought it was easy to navigate. Today was our orientation, it was a F2F meeting. Except for our final meeting the rest of the class will be online. We are exploring different themes in the next six weeks. Our first theme; What is in the Read/Write Web? We are reading two articles; the first is by Wesley Fryer from http://www.speedofcreativity.org and Will Richardson from http://weblogg-ed.com We all posted an introduction on a discussion board. It gave me a good picture of everyone taking the class. There are over 20 educators taking the class. I enjoyed reading the introductions and replying to many of the participants. I am really looking forward in playing an active role in the class. I really want to learn more about online collaboration between teachers. I want to learn more about the use of wikis in bringing in content to an elementary classroom.
