I am not exactly sure what I thought Web 2.0 training was going to be, but I knew I was looking forward to it. Needless to say, I did not leave disappointed. I have always considered myself to be fairly "technologically hip." Boy, was I wrong. I never realized just how far behind I am, and how many possibilites there are out there.
When I came home, and started talking about the different "things" we were going to be working on, Madison, my 9 year old, was not as surprised by what I had to share. She was like, "Oh yeah, I know about....." She was familiar with most everything I shared with her. Part of me was a little startled because I thought I "knew" all the things she dabbled in on her computer. Not that anything was inappropriate, it just made me realize I need to pay closer attention to what she does on her computer. The other part of me was excited sionce this gves me someone else to access help from (0: Now, we talk a lot about technology, and she is more interested in what I am doing for "homework."
I am looking forward to learning more about blogging, and reading about the ideas everyone has for using blogs with their students. I am never surprised by the great ideas our group always comes up with.
