From YouTube to Facebook to Scriblink to StumbleUpon, new Web 2.0 applications are popping up in our browsers daily. But what is all the hubbub really about? This daylong workshop will begin with the fundamentals of Web 2.0 technologies: What are they? How do they work? Why should we use them? How are they changing education? Participants will then learn about how these technologies are shaping the ways millennial students-who are more likely to use their cell phones for text than voice and are four times more likely to be gamers than golfers-choose to learn. During the afternoon portion of this workshop, participants will experiment with six important Web 2.0 technologies. Attendees will gain an understanding of each technology, learn how it fits into the larger Web 2.0 shift, and explore potential uses in education.

Please Note: You will need to bring a laptop. If circumstances prevent you from bringing a laptop to the seminar, please e-mail Victoria Fanning at
