The Millennial or The Digital ( today’s student ) Collaborates Expresses creativity Has direct access to EVERYTHING Driven by information/content Demands FLEXIBILITY

Collaborates

Expresses creativity

Has direct access to EVERYTHING

Driven by information/content

Demands FLEXIBILITY

 

Let’s look at where we were… Something has changed in the Web during this decade of online history… At the beginning it was all about being online ; now it’s about socializing in the online environment .

Until recently, to produce content for a large audience you needed to be a... Publisher Broadcaster Billboard owner Pilot flying a sign-dragging airplane Guy holding up signs at football games on television Cable-access show (Wayne’s World) Person with a loud voice

The Origin: Web 1.0 Most people read the Net instead of producing for it, because producers needed: HTML coding skills ( for the techie ) Programming skills ( for the elite techie ) Graphic design skills ( for the esthetic ) Hosting ability ( for those with money ) Promotion mechanisms ( more money )

Most people read the Net instead of producing for it, because producers needed:

HTML coding skills ( for the techie )

Programming skills ( for the elite techie )

Graphic design skills ( for the esthetic )

Hosting ability ( for those with money )

Promotion mechanisms ( more money )

Minor Upgrade: Web 1.5 Most people still read the Net instead of producing for it BUT the skill set was getting more manageable: FrontPage or DreamWeaver ( no HTML ) Applications to do programming ( no programming ) Templates ( no graphic design ) Yahoo hosts Web sites ( no need to host ) Search engines can promote ( no promotion )

Web 2.0 Blogs Wikis MashUPS Social Networking Podcasting

Information is no longer difficult to create and access www.creativecommons.org Find Creative Commons Licensed Work License Your Work

Example 1: Blogs WEB + LOGS = BLOGS Web pages with updates in chronological (or reverse chronological) order 1997 term first emerged Now 55 million Blogs and growing by one a every second! Opportunity to enable responses from readers and RSS dissemination make Blogs 2.0 technologies

WEB + LOGS = BLOGS

Web pages with updates in chronological (or reverse chronological) order

1997 term first emerged

Now 55 million Blogs and growing by one a every second!

Opportunity to enable responses from readers and RSS dissemination make Blogs 2.0 technologies

Example 1: Blogs A Blog is a Web site where entries are made in journal style and displayed in a reverse chronological order. A Blog entry typically consists of the following: Title , the main title, or headline, of the post. Body , main content of the post. Permalink , the URL of the full, individual article. Post Date , date and time the post was published. A Blog entry optionally includes the following: Comments Categories (or tags) - subjects that the entry discusses Trackback and or pingback - links to other sites that refer to the entry

A Blog is a Web site where entries are made in journal style and displayed in a reverse chronological order.

A Blog entry typically consists of the following:

Title , the main title, or headline, of the post.

Body , main content of the post.

Permalink , the URL of the full, individual article.

Post Date , date and time the post was published.

A Blog entry optionally includes the following:

Comments

Categories (or tags) - subjects that the entry discusses

Trackback and or pingback - links to other sites that refer to the entry

` Participatory journalism is living its renaissance powered by the “credibility crackdown” of traditional media ( MSM ) and it’s reaching its own “technology perfection” through this new social media that are Blogs , and that “vigorous communication subspace” , emerging within the Web itself, that is the Blogosphere .

 

Some Blogs… http://www.leadertalk.org/ http://www.eduspaces.net http://mrmackeyscience.blogspot.com/ http://www.principalspage.com/theblog/ http://www.elizabethfullerton.com/

So let’s make a blog entry… Writing Prompt!

Some fads are dangerous, some are just fun. How do you know where the line is BEFORE you’ve crossed it.

Example 2: Podcasting In 2007… Awareness of the term, "Podcasting," increased from 22% to 37% Persons who had 'ever' listened to an audio Podcast rose from 11% to 13% Persons who had 'ever' watched a video Podcast rose from 10% to 11% © Edison Media Research. All rights reserved

In 2007…

Awareness of the term, "Podcasting," increased from 22% to 37%

Persons who had 'ever' listened to an audio Podcast rose from 11% to 13%

Example 2: Podcasting One in five (19 percent) of those under the age of 30 have iPods/MP3 players

So what is it?? iPod + broadcast = podcast Way to distribute multimedia files over the internet Audio event, conversation, lecture, song, speech, group presentation Delivered via RSS Mobile device synchronized with a computer

iPod + broadcast = podcast

Way to distribute multimedia files over the internet

Audio event, conversation, lecture, song, speech, group presentation

Delivered via RSS

Mobile device synchronized with a computer

So what is it?? Podcasting allows access to many different voices compared to “traditional channels.” Portable studio consisting of a recorder and a laptop Podcasting differs from other types of media distribution in that it's a subscription model, using automatic feeding mechanisms (RSS) to deliver files Podcasting can be done by anyone, anywhere, as long as they have a computer, a recording device, and software

So let’s make a podcast together…

Example 3: Wikis Easily add, remove and otherwise edit and change some available content, sometimes without the need for registration An effective tool for COLLABORATIVE AUTHORING The open philosophy of most Wikis—of allowing anyone to edit content—does not ensure that editors are well intentioned

Easily add, remove and otherwise edit and change some available content, sometimes without the need for registration

An effective tool for COLLABORATIVE AUTHORING

The open philosophy of most Wikis—of allowing anyone to edit content—does not ensure that editors are well intentioned

Example 3: Wikis Wikis represent consensus over authority -- the knowledge of many people is considered more valuable and correct than the knowledge of any one person, even an expert Wikis like Wikipedia still rely on the valuable input of experts to correct errors and improve the value of the resource Wikipedia was compared to Encyclopedia Britannica and found to be about as accurate in articles on the sciences Wikis use a slightly different markup than the Web, but it’s easy to learn

Online workspaces where anyone can read, write, edit documents

Previous edits trackable; virtual “paper trail”

Encourages group collaboration

Wiki=Hawaiian for “quick”

Then there’s Wikipedia The world’s largest encyclopedia Launched in 2001 1,000,000+ entries in 200+ languages A magnet for controversy

The world’s largest encyclopedia

Launched in 2001

1,000,000+ entries in 200+ languages

A magnet for controversy

The BIG Issue Pro : Anyone can create or edit Wikipedia entries Con : Anyone can create or edit Wikipedia entries

Pro :

Anyone can create or edit Wikipedia entries

Con :

Anyone can create or edit Wikipedia entries

Some Wikipedia suggestions... Wikipedia as research exercise Assign Wikipedia (wiki) entries to students Students examine entries’ accuracy Use multiple sources to correct entries “ Final” version given seal of approval

Wikipedia as research exercise

Assign Wikipedia (wiki) entries to students

Students examine entries’ accuracy

Use multiple sources to correct entries

“ Final” version given seal of approval

Use for student projects where group members need to contribute at different times and from geographically diverse locations. Use for collaborating on ideas and organizing documents and resources from individuals and groups of students. As a group research project for a specific idea. Manage school and classroom documents. Use as a collaborative handout for students. Writing: student created books and journaling. Create and maintain a classroom FAQ As a classroom discussion and debate area. A place to aggregate web resources. Choose a topic on Wikipedia, break the topic into facts, students verify the facts using their information literacy skills, and make changes accordingly (Citing sources).

So let’s make a wiki page together…

Example 4: MashUPS A mash up is a Web site or Web application that seamlessly combines content from more than one source into an integrated experience. Content used in MashUPS is typically sourced from a third party via a public interface. Other methods of sourcing content for MashUPS include Web feeds and JavaScript. Many companies are experimenting with MashUPS using eBay, Amazon, Google, Windows Live, and Yahoo.

Events

Competencies, people

MashUPS simplified: You already know the model Think Lego blocks!

 

 

 

So let’s make a mashup…

Example 5: Social Networking Online communities where people are actively encouraged to use and share each other’s original content Web sites that focus on community Encourage interaction, discussion, debate Public member profiles User-generated content Often target specific audiences
