Twitter, Delicious, WordPress, blogging, RSS; these terms may sound familiar, but are you using them to enhance your classroom and learning opportunities as a professional? If the answer to that question is no, maybe, or not as much as I would like, then this course is for you. Come along and join the fun as we explore how to wrap many powerful web 2.0 technologies into a usable and functional system that will support you as an educator. This course will ultimately change how you view technology and enable you to design a website and personal learning network (PLN). Many assignments are packaged into individual modules that build upon each other. Modules become more complex as you proceed, but each previous module prepares you for the next one.
