I had a full lab of 17 teachers eager to learn about web 2.0 and teaching and learning in the 21st century. I showed them the "did you know" video and the more recent "we think" and gave them a whole bunch of links to slideshare presentations, websites, documents, articles, and videos.
I'm sure it was overwhelming for many of them, but they were real troopers. They created their own Blogger blog, and subscribed to each other's blogs using Bloglines. I also put together a Moodle course site, but unfortunately it is only accessible from our school. Hopefully next week our tech guys will work out the IP problems and we'll be back online.
A few of the more advanced "students" added a Feedjit or ClustrMap to their blog. Within a few minutes of creating her blog, one attendee reported receiving a comment on a picture of her dog that she had posted-- and it wasn't from one of the other teachers-- it was from someone in Oregon or in India! That quickly!!!
I have really been after them to spend time reflecting, thinking, contemplating, processing, discussing, and then WRITING on their blogs about Web 2.0 and 21st century teaching and learning and how it all affects them and their students. And hopefully they'll visit each other's blogs to continue the conversations.
Tomorrow we tackle CPS clickers, SMART board, Flickr and Picnik. I think they'll have more fun with these than with all the serious thinking I asked them to do today. Hopefully their blogs will reflect that.
