(From the Shameless Self-Promotion Dept.) A quick link to an article I wrote in the new issue of Access Learning. Here’s the lead:
Over the last few years, our relationship with the Web has been changing dramatically. Simple new technologies like weblogs and podcasts are allowing us to not only create content like text, audio, and video more easily, they are also allowing us to publish and share that content on the Web with very little effort. Instead of a “read only” Web, we’re entering the age of the Read/Write Web, where contributing knowledge is as easy as consuming it. Being able to publish worldwide this easily does raise legal and ethical issues for educators to be aware of, but it also facilitates a whole range of new learning potentials for students and teachers in the classroom. Here is a quick look at some of the technologies that are changing the way educators think about and deliver instruction.
Covered in brief are Weblogs, wikis, Podcasts, RSS, Webcams, and streaming video. Lots of links included.
