Hey Vonnie, how are you? Have you heard of YouFig.com? It's a useful site for collaboration between students and between teacher & class. It's invitation only and I still have a few invites left. Let me know if you'd like one. Looking forward to seeing you around here.
YES! and I just refer to them as "speed bumps". Many of the sites available would be so useful but the students just cannot access them from school. A good example is the SplashCast site for streaming of multimedia. I spent weeks working with year 8 students exploring the sites capabilities so that they could broadcast their school assignment work 24/7 for friends, family and teachers to see....but just as we were getting a handle on it it got blocked by our watchdog. Very frustrating when your employer talks the talk re innovation and ICT integration but continually places the speed bumps in your path.
Now, Vonnie, do we need a separate Ning for the Net@Blazers or can we just set up a Group within this Ning? That way we can learn about all of the potential from within a pre-established community rather than starting up our own separately. What do you think?
