This podcast is a recording of the keynote address I shared on July 9, 2008, in Osage Beach, Missouri at the Missouri Distance Learning Association (MODLA) annual conference. Approximately 90% of those in attendance for this keynote were higher education faculty, instructors, and support staff members. The official conference program description for this session was: Good teaching is similar in many ways to good cooking. Recipes are helpful, but master cooks often modify those to meet different needs and situations. The same is true for teachers. If we extend this analogy of cooking to teaching and learning in a web 2.0 world, what are the best “ingredients” to use as we help both teachers and students learn to be more effective, safe, and powerful communicators in our flat world? In this working session we will focus on six key ingredients: social bookmarks, Flickr photo sharing, VoiceThread digital storytelling, collaborative writing tools, websites for phone recording as well as SMS polling, and videoconferencing.
