Introduction to Web 2 for beginners

This past Tuesday, January 2nd, while many of you were recovering, I was working. I was asked to give an introduction to Web 2.0 to the teachers at Westwood Schools where I work. I spent 18 minutes talking about powergrade, so you may want to forward to minute 18:30 and listen to the introduction. This is how I share with beginners (like I was about a year a go). Many have shared with me how they liked it and several have started blogging this week with their classes.

This is episode 10 of the Cool Cat Teacher podcast. (You can subscribe over iTunes or go my my feed.) My Odeo Podcast

Teachers might want to check out the latest Web 2.0 ap specifically for them. haiku LMS is an innovative classroom website creator for educators. The drag & drop CMS and Calendar / Assignments posting are easier than you can imagine.
