Hi Nellie,
Are you leading any courses on PLNs or Moodle in the near future?

Here are 2 links:
a) Wikipedia
b) ThinkQuest

But best to read Lorenz's original book. I raised the hairs on my neck.

Thanks, Nellie. One of my students did it for me -- my take on the butterfly effect in the Chaos Theory book.

cool. it worked, and was as simple as embedding youtube videos or picasa albums in the tiddlywiki-dataperfect learning environment i have been immersed in for the past 2 1/2 years

thanks for your comment. i am delighted to have found classroom 2.0 as my entry point to ning - via a google search for "digital languages" and would love to find ways of working with you - plus any guidance into finding my way around the classroom and connecting with others who share a realization of the possibilities of the diversity of free collaborative, and finding out how to design, set up and facilitate classrooms - eventually one or more for each of the many projects and networks i have been involved with.

i am not sure if i have succeeded in inserting a video, and will try embedding one by a novice - myself - with a flipvideo - wonderfully simple and inexpensive video cameras for sharing voices and visions of people and communities throughout the world - in the spirit of the 1980 MacBride Report: Many Voices, One World

Why don't you join us on web 2.0 tools for instruction and learning at http://www.integrating-technology.com/pd and add your concerns to the discussions.

Thank you for accepting my invitation. As mentioned on my profile I am trying to encorage teachers to use web 2.0 tools. Some of them are definately not computer literate; other just wont try new thing because their conventional system works. Is there a way in which I can get their attention?? I send them monthly newletters with the updating of the blogs I created.
I would appreciate any feedback on this.
