My course on multiliteracies:

http://www.homestead.com/prosites-vstevens/files/efi/papers/tesol/ppot/portal2007.htm

Ten aspects of paradigm shift Pedagogy : Didactic --> constructivist Modeling : Do as I say --> AND as I do Sharing : Copyrighted --> creative commons Trepidation : Will they find out? --> ok to say I don’t know Literacy : Print literacy --> multiliteracies Heuristics : Client server -->peer to peer Transfer : Informal technology is F.U.N. --> applied to professional practice Directionality : Push --> pull Ownership : Proprietary --> open source Classification : Taxonomies --> folksonomies Here, I first suggested multiple aspects of paradigm shift required http://www.homestead.com/prosites-vstevens/files/efi/papers/2007alexandria/web20arabia.htm

Pedagogy : Didactic --> constructivist

Modeling : Do as I say --> AND as I do

Sharing : Copyrighted --> creative commons

Trepidation : Will they find out? --> ok to say I don’t know

Literacy : Print literacy --> multiliteracies

Heuristics : Client server -->peer to peer

Transfer : Informal technology is F.U.N. --> applied to professional practice

Directionality : Push --> pull

Ownership : Proprietary --> open source

Classification : Taxonomies --> folksonomies

Classification: Taxonomies  Folksonomies

Initially involved bloggers in

Argentina

Venezuela

Slovenia

Who utilized

tagging

social networking tools

to enable the students to

locate each other's blogs

interact with selected individuals thus identified as being of similar age and interests.

Writingmatrix: Technique To achieve this, Students are encouraged to blog their interests and concerns tag relevant posts with an identifier unique to the project Technorati then used to identify the posts of participants in other countries http://technorati.com/search/writingmatrix?authority=n&language=en http://screencast.com/t/M33ixayEN2J

To achieve this, Students are

tag relevant posts with an identifier unique to the project

Technorati then used to identify the posts of participants in other countries http://technorati.com/search/writingmatrix?authority=n&language=en http://screencast.com/t/M33ixayEN2J

Writingmatrix: Outcomes Students are motivated to form writing partnerships Spontaneously without prior collaboration in projects set by teachers collaborating in the project A final aspect of the project is to have students explore areas of mutual interest through tagging some of their and each other's posts in Del.icio.us, then discern who else is reading and tagging their posts

Students are motivated to form writing partnerships

Spontaneously without prior collaboration

in projects set by teachers collaborating in the project

A final aspect of the project is to have students

explore areas of mutual interest through tagging some of their and each other's posts in Del.icio.us,

then discern who else is reading and tagging their posts

It works! Ronaldo’s comment on http://advanceducation.blogspot.com/2008/02/all-i-know-about-blogging-and.html
