I gave a presentation yesterday titled “The Social Web for Early Elementary: Shifting Literacy from Individual Expression to Community Engagement” at Lorain Community College for a group of pre-kindergarten and kindergarten teachers from Lorain City Schools. Below, you can find the uStream.tv video archive* of the presentation and my Slideshare show. Here’s the complete presentation wiki.
Thanks to all of the great people from the Lorain Early Reading First program who invited me to be a part of their Summer Institute and allowed me to learn, grow and share with them. It was a wonderful opportunity and experience! A special thanks to Dr. Kathy Roskos for continuing to open doors for me as well as Dr. Alec Couros who graciously allowed me to include a slide from one of his recent presentations in my talk.
*The audio cuts out at around the 10 minute mark but returns after about a minute and a half. During the presentation, I turned off the mic to prevent audio feedback rather than just turning off the sound on the laptop that I was presenting from. Note to self: fix that next time.
