This blog has been set-up as part of APSU School of Education's Learning 2.0 - 23 Things for Teachers project to encourage APSU preservice and inservice teachers to experiment and learn about the new and emerging technologies that are reshaping the context of information on the Internet today. The objectives of this program are to:
- encourage exploration of Web 2.0 and new technologies by APSU preservice and inservice teachers
- provide preservice and inservice teachers with new tools (that are freely available on the Internet) to better support APSU School of Education's teacher preparation standards
- provide learning activities that meet the goals and objectives of EDUC 3040/5618
- provide APSU preservice and inservice teachers with opportunities to think about how these new technologies can be used in their future classrooms
Learning 2.0 - 23 Things for Teachers is based on Learning 2.0 - 23 Things. That program is based on the Learning 2.0 program that was designed by Helene Blowers, Technology Director at the Charlotte Mecklenburg County Public Library system, with the support and assitance of several staff. Helene's program was loosely based upon Stephen Abram's article, 43 Things I (or You) might want to do this year (Information Outlook - Feb 2006) and the website 43Things.
The design of this online program was completely built on Web 2.0 technologies that are freely available on the Internet. These sites include: Blogger, Flickr, Odeo, YouTube, PBWiki & Bloglines.
