Free: My Atomic Learning Workshop on Web 2.0 for November Only

OK, I'm really excited about this. The Web 2.0 workshop that I created for Atomic Learning is FREE for the month of November only!

This is a great service to education and I appreciate Atomic's willingness to make this free.

Contents of the Web 2.0 workshop

  • Web 2.0 terminology
  • Blog basics (like what it is, how to read a blog, how to comment, how to find a license)
  • Wiki basics (what is a wiki, parts of a wiki)
  • Podcast basics (what is a podcast, how to listen to a podcast)
  • Webcast Basics (how to listen to a webcast)
  • Social Networking Basics (how to navigate them)
  • Tags and Tag Clouds – Uses of tags
  • How to set up an RSS Reader (using Netvibes) — this is important
  • How to communicate with a group using Netvibes
  • And a MUST-SEE for Principals — customized searches on Google, Youtube, photographs, etc.

The great thing about Atomic Learning is that it is built upon little short movie clips so you may just go into the tutorial and look at a few of the items that will help you.

Thanks, Atomic Learning. And thank you for asking me to contribute. It has been an honor!

  1. Thanks Vicki, you’ve don’t it again. I didn’t think I’d learn anything new with this one, but the atomic format lets me choose the segments relevant to me. I picked up some new tips – I’m off to play with netvibes now.

  2. Hi Vicki,
    Thanks for this. However, I guess I just have to ask, why Atomic Learning? Free in November is good but not as great as free access forever would have been. I’d love to see a resource like this within the realm of the Creative Commons.

  3. Thanks Vicki for your very honest answer. I have no problem with people creating content for pay, and I think its very fair and reasonable to expect compensation for work well done.

    You give a lot of yourself all of the time, and I am aware of this, so don’t see this as a personal critique. I gain a lot of insight from your blog, and I share your work with my students every semester.

    It’s just too bad that such a great resource is not accessible through the Creative Commons. Of course, I can say this about many works (e.g., movies, books, articles, etc.). I know in my own work I’m constantly trying to push people that way … to release content through copyleft licenses when at all possible, to promote greater access to high quality work. I’m sure I don’t have to expose you to that argument, I know that you believe in access.

    Again, thanks for your honest and pragmatic answer, Vicki.

    All the best.

  4. Alec-

    The thing about it is, if they hadn’t paid me, I simply wouldn’t have taken the time to do it. As much as I wanted to!

    It took me over 100 hours over two week to learn how to do it (so I’d be capable) and then they coached me through how to do it. They offered a great value.

    As much as I’d love to sit around and make videos all day, the “extra” time I have (which isn’t much) is spent freelancing. Atomic was attractive to get the word out because of their reputation, their reach around the world (many IB schools use it) and the fact that they are willing to offer free workshops.

    So, it is easy to say “why not do everything and be free all of the time?”

    Well, I’m already doing a lot free already by blogging and advocating change and Wow2. Sometimes I have to take freelance work so that I can pay to go to conferences (like NECC) because my school does not have money to send me to anything. This particular job is sending me to the Georgia Technology Conference next week.

    So, there is your very pragmatic answer!
