Women of the Web 3.0 #121 Silvia Tolisano

Sharon Peters, Cheri Toledo and Peggy George had an energizing, delightful conversation with one of our favorite people, Silvia Tolisano (Langwitches) in this webcast. We had a wonderful conversation about Skype in the Classroom and her global projects. Her newest project is "Around the World in 80 Schools" and she has created a Ning network for teachers interested in participating in the project to collaborate and learn from each other. There are some fantastic resources on her blog about using Skype including job descriptions for students managing all of the various Skype tasks, and some excellent classroom posters that can be downloaded and printed explaining all of the literacy skills students are using for podcasting, blogging, wikis and other tools involved with the global projects. Thanks to Sharon’s newly developed streaming skills we were able to stream most of the session on ustream so we could view some of Silvia’s resources for her student projects. Special thanks to Lorna Costantini for capturing the audio and streaming on Shoutcast for us! The ustream version starts about 10 minutes into the session but it is well worth watching.
A bonus in the session was Sharon’s announcement that she is taking a new position in Mozambique.

This week, show co-hosts Cheri Toledo and Peggy George carried on while Sharon Peters was in California at the Big Idea Fest conference. We had a fantastic conversation with Dr. Cheryl Ball, an Assistant Professor of New Media in the Department of English at Illinois State University where she teaches classes in multimodal composition, digital media, composition theory, and digital publishing. Cheryl is also the Lead Editor of Kairos: An Online Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy. The journal publishes things that can only exist in an online journal (you can’t print a video).

WOW2 Show #112 with Karin Muller of Take2 Videos

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.
