This podcast is a recording of a videoconference I shared with educators in Texas and Ohio on July 7, 2009, as part of the summer Tandberg Connections professional development program. The session description 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 five key ingredients: Social Bookmarking, Collaborative Document Writing, Synchronous Conferencing, Online Photo Sharing, and Minimal Click Digital Storytelling. Cooking can be intimidating for novices, but richly rewarding. Let’s learn to cook up some gourmet learning with some powerful (and free) web 2.0 tools! (end of description) We addressed ingredients one through five (of ten) in this session.
