I'm currently using Moodle to create a professional development course about Web 2.0 technologies. I'm using a topic structure for my modules. Each module will last a week. I have five modules planned: blogs, wikis, RSS, social bookmarking and mashups, and podcasts and images. I'm creating the course for the El Paso Area Libraries consortium. It will be made available to librarians across El Paso. Has anyone done anything similar. I would love to get into contact with someone who has a similar… Continue

Wow! Once again, Paul Volponi has written a stunningly awesome book and the horror of New Orleans and Hurricane Katrina is all too crushingly real from Miles' point of view. He has only been living with his jazz playing dad for a short time when he, his uncle and his dad take their possessions in a hefty bag and head for the Super Dome. I was afraid of the gangs preying upon the families, so sad for the meaningless deaths of so many and the squalor, and oppressive heat that they had to endure.… Continue

I want to see our student reading because they are soooo excited about a new book. I believe that we can entice our students to read using all these wonderful Web 2.0 tools and look forward to watching them grow and share their reading experiences. We'll be using blogs, podcasts, book discussions both online and live group, Photostories, scrapbooking, plays, news broadcasts. I'm sure there are many other ideas that will "grab" students and have them drooling for a specific book.

I just love the way Jordan Sonneblick gets it- the right on 13 year old musings of Steven, his fear and anger and his constantly annoying little brother. I couldn't put this book down, polished… Continue

Deanna has a horrible reputation she has never been able to escape---so what did I learn- Deanna takes a life of… Continue

Carl and I concluded our first run of (WSI) Website Investigation: An Introduction to Information Forensics. This is a fully facilitated Moodle based online class. We had a lot of fun and the participants were great. We also radically underestimated the amount of time the course would take. We figured 5 hours in one week. When we polled the class everyone reported taking far more time with each case study.
It doesn't surprise me. As I… Continue
