National Geographic Photojournalist Karin Muller joined us on April 28, 2009 to share her incredible initiative, Take2 Videos. Karin places herself in conflict areas to provide high-definition footage to students so that they can create documentaries and shorts. This is an opportunity for our students to interact with real people about gritty issues.
This week Women of the Web 2 welcomed guest Jeremy Davis, "20 To Watch" 2008 award winner, finalist for the Project Tomorrow Innovation in Education Award as High Impact Teacher for Orange County in 2008, and creator of Virtual Technology Teacher http://virtualtechnologyteacher.com. Jeremy is currently a Coordinator for Instructional Technology for the Anaheim City School District in Orange County, California. In spite of some Skype challenges and audio difficulties at the beginning of the show, Jeremy and Jen persevered with some awesome conversation about Jeremy's exciting activities with teachers and students. Jeremy shared strategies for engaging administrators and teachers with technology, creative teacher-led professional development suggestions, and ideas for making effective use of COWs (computers on wheels). His online videos of model technology lessons are fantastic resources for teachers and students of all ages. WOW2 links on Delicious: http://delicious.com/WOW2.0
