Our second week of Social Software in the Classroom was a great success! Our initial set up, getting everyone into our skype conference call did require patience on everyone’s part, there are limits as to how many you can have participating at one time. Once over that hurdle our class moved through review of wikis, wonderful conversations as why use social software with students and also for personal professional development. The expression of viewpoints during the conversations were varied and lead to an engaging exchange of ideas, which I believe are so valuable. Next week we will be talking about google tools, what they are, how to use them. This is a learning experience for all of us, not only through the use of the tools, but the conversations we participate in as we go. Thanks to all who have joined us, see you next week.
still a couple of glitches with technology, but compared to the week before things worked smoothly. We had a some additional people join us which was great, our conversations were very good and it was another step in building a new community of learners for all of us.
