Teach Web 2.0 Teacher Consortium

Anna (our lower school technologist) and I are building a Wisdom Community within our school. The idea is that a group of teacher volunteers will review social networking sites and tools, conduct a SWOT analysis (strengths, weakness, opportunities, threats) and determine creative educational applications. We're planning to start with wikis. We've designed the Teach Web 2.0 Wiki to collect our thoughts and ideas. For now, wiki participation will be limited to members from the school. We hope to open it up to everyone once we have a little more content to share. We welcome discussion posts and email suggestions. We documented the ID process used to create the consortium as part of an Instructional Design course that we are taking at the University of Florida.

This is going to be a great place to converse, collaborate, and exchange ideas with fellow teachers on networking sites and available teaching tools, that are essential to classroom learning in today's digital world.

I am really looking forward to how the SWOT analysis plays out!

Thanks for sharing.
