Participants will be able to identify SHARING opportunities and technologies for local and global project interaction and collaboration including wikis, discussion groups, and online publishing.

Young people enjoy sharing their experiences with others. Let's explore creation tools, collaboration tools, and syndication tools.

Consider small and large group shared experiences using whiteboards. Learn more about Engaging Learners the SMARTboard Way.

Syndication Tools

Rather than people coming to your blog, podcast, wiki, or online newspaper, consider using an RSS feed to share your web-based projects. Look for the web feed symbol in the location line of your web browser.

Go to CSS Research. Notice that at the end of the website location box is the RSS feed icon. Click this to add the feed to your feed reader such as Google Reader.

Go to Lamb and Johnson's Personal Page. Notice the RSS feed.

For mathematics, check out Mr. Kuropatwa's Classes (Applied Math 40S - W07, W08, PreCalc 20S - F06, PreCalc 30S - F06, PreCal 40S - F06, W06, W07, APCalc AB - W07, Calc 45S - S06). He uses blogs, collaboration, and images to enhance the social and emotional aspects of his classes.
