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
A "berry" good brainstorm.
Thanks to Jeff for hosting the call, and all who joined us in the chatroom. This week we check in with Vance Stevens, Jose Rodriguez, and Dave Cormier about plans for Webheads in Action: Online Convergence, 2009 (WIAOC09).
Susan Ettenheim and Paul Allison welcome colleagues Ron Link (NYC Writing Project), Gail Desler (Area 3 Writing Project in California), and Fred Hass (Boston Writing Project) for a conversation about collaboration, publishing, and building a responsive community of students, mainly within our work together on Youth Voices.
Please listen to how we talk to each other, then plan to join us in the future.

In this conversation we focused on the type of student we are creating in our classrooms where we empower them to be in control of their own learning. We discussed what this means when these students leave us and go to another classroom where this does not happen.
