Many of give presentations or deliver training workshops for K-12 or
postsecondary educators. As part of those professional development efforts, we
have a variety of resources and favorites that we use: background readings for
participants, videos that we show, example blogs or wikis that we highlight,
I'm working on a wiki, Moving
Forward, which I'm hoping can be a good resource for all of
private list of examples and resources that they use when they present. I'd like
to encourage everyone to contribute at least one resource to the Moving Forward wiki.
To start, let's focus on blogging:
- What are some good background readings and other resources on K-12 and/or
staff blogs to show audiences?
Please contribute your resources and URLs to the Moving Forward Blogs page.
This is a great way for everyone to create a resource
that can be used by all of us as we work to facilitate technology-related change
in schools and universities. Just one resource or example blog, that's all I
ask. C'mon, that's nothing! You can do it!
Feel free to add to the other pages as well. I'll issues calls for contributions for other sections of the wiki over the coming weeks. If you make a contribution, please add your name to
the contributor list!
