I created a 3 page QuickStart guide for Flickr for our Oklahoma Digital Centennial project training today. I linked this from my “Powerful Blending” workshop curriculum on web 2.0.
As with all my other online educational technology workshop curricula, this is shared under a Creative Commons Attribution-Only license, so feel free to use this and share it with others. I used this in a handout about web 2.0 which included my del.icio.us QuickStart guide. All the links / resources we referenced and used today are available on this public Google Notebook.
My favorite video of the day was definitely the Jimmy Wales (WikiPedia founder) speech from April 2006. So many people have misconceptions about WikiPedia, and I loved his explanation of how WikiPedia is mainly authored by a close community of people, rather than simply an army of ants (people) who are demonstrating the “The Wisdom of Crowds.” Thanks to Miguel Guhlin for videoconferencing in at the end of our session for about 20 minutes and discussing Skype in the Classroom! 🙂 Miguel has posted a vidcast of our conversation. I hadn’t heard about the Global Education Ning before, I am so glad to learn a Ning social network has been created specifically for facilitating classroom collaborations and promoting global citizenship!
