Survival Literacies - Writing in Web 2.0
Transcript of Survival Literacies - Writing in Web 2.0
Use of Web 2.0 technologies activates the prior knowledge of "the net generation"
Multimedia writing allows students to write for variety of audiences and purposes
Literacy and writing in different mediums is necessary for students' success inside and outside the university So what mediums can--or should--be used in the 101 classroom? Well, blogs are hot right now... but in my last 101 classroom, I found that students didn't really use the blogs to work socially or collaboratively--they didn't even read their friends' blogs! So what now? Well, my google calendar worked out pretty well... But it looks like I can also use Google Wave, or a similar social network, to replace blogs... which works especially well, since it can not only blog, but will also aggregate to other students--like Twitter or Facebook. Students can even use a blog to start a discussion. Piggybacking off Barbara's use of Wikis in the classroom, I can test out some writing exercises in the wikispace--if things go well, they can write their papers in Wiki, and have an e-portfolio that's stylish and quick. They can even peer-review outside of class, freeing up valuable class time for other things! Finally, I want students to construct a peer-review rubric for use with the wiki. So they can rank (and even suggest) criteria using Survey Monkey. So what's the point of all these gadgets?
