Module 5 - Blogs and The Read/Write Web




PART 1 - Blogs


It is now just as easy to create and share content online as it is to consume it. Blogs are the essential two-way web technology - and if you can email, you can blog. Create a blog, publish your first post, and learn how to manage comments. This session also includes many models and examples of blogs being used in education at all levels.

PART 2 - Portfolios (And More Read/Write Web Services)


In this final session, participants post each of their certification assignments on their blog. A live "test" is also conducted so that each participant has the opportunity to demonstrate his or her new skills prior to being certified. Participants also celebrate by sharing model lessons with each other.
