Connecting educators interested in innovation
Jess McCulloch – an early uptaker of and innovator with web2.0, a young mother, a treasured colleague and vivacious presenter, talked about “My Use of Web 2.0”. Jess ably walked us through her blog and other favourite websites, featuring a number of web2.0 tools, answered questions and demonstrated their purpose. Jess talked about the Interactive Whiteboard Challenge which she organises and showed the wiki that is used for this project. Her audience came from a large number of countries – Germany, England, Canada, USA, Australia, Vietnam, South America and Ukraine. What an amazing "Flat Staffroom" for PD and conversation sharing.
