These "Kids" Today

Posted on October 1, 2008 at 12:32pm 6 Comments

I'm growing increasingly frustrated with the entering freshman classes here at my university.

Hey Kimberly,
I did a paper called "Exploration: web 2.0" as part of my degree, and for a long time it all seemed very overwhelming, the whole web 2.0 thing.

Some may come and thank you later.....
Glad to have you as a colleague; we're all in the same boat!
Cheers,
Gavin

hi Kimberly,
a way cool blog you have...letting your students explore..
I work in the area of songwriting as a vehicle for promoting literacy, although I am presently in the United Arab Emirates as an ICT advisor...anyway I have some music on my classroom2.0 page, some made by students, but also mostly made by me when i play around with programmes like Sony Acid....I am very intersted in students collaborating betond physical restraints..that being said we are very much at a rudimentary level here in UAE...welcme to CR2.0 cheers,
Gavin
