Presentation at College of Education Design Charrette


I gave a presentation this morning at a design charrette from the UW College of Education where they’re talking about how new web collaboration technologies can be utilized to help support teachers beginning their professional careers.

I started by talking about a story in this morning’s paper that cited several new studies showing that there are some benefits from playing videogames.

Then I shared Michael Wesch’s great video called A Vision of Students Today that he made with his cultural anthropology class at Kansas State last year, and then talked about ways that I get support from my professional community by using new web technologies.

My slides are here.
