Social Software 08 - Expanding the Circle

To technology professional developers (and social software enthusiasts) worldwide:

Social Software '07 ended on such a high note that Robin Ellis and I are ready (and preparing) for rounds two and three.

One thing we'd like to change in rounds two and three is how you (and your teachers) participate. While we want the class to remain open to anyone around the world, we think it would be more effective if we could get multiple sites to participate in the teaching, as well as the learning - you know: we'll rotate teaching. With five sites, each site can teach one week.

Below are the details as they have been established. Some details can change, some can't.

Round 2 - Social Software Overview

Details That Can't Change

  1. Wednesday nights, consecutive from Jan 23 to Feb 20. At my site, we will be meeting from 4:15pm to 7:15pm (Mountain Standard Time).
  2. This class will be held on Wednesday nights, for five consecutive weeks.
  3. In this class, we will be covering a wide range of social software tools and how to use them to teach (much like we did in our Social Software '07 class).
Details That Can Change
  1. I must meet for 3 hours each night with the teachers in my district. We can decide as a group, however, at exactly what times we want to connect with each other (from 4:30pm to 7:00pm, for example - or shorter if preferred).
  2. The curriculum can change - in fact, Robin and I would like to work with YOU to design the perfect curriculum.
Round 3 - Blogs & Wikis in the Classroom

Details That Can't Change
  1. Wednesday nights, consecutive but with one jump: Feb 27, Mar 5, 19, 26, and April 2. Again, we will be meeting from 4:15pm to 7:15pm (Mountain Standard Time).
Details That Can Change
  1. Again, the content. In this third round we wanted to focus on a few specific social software applications (like blogs and wikis), really get down and dirty with the details.
  2. Again, we'd like your input in designing the curriculum.
