Virtual communication?

Sure, I use it- every single day, for hours at a time. Back when I had time, it was mostly the on-board instant messaging system in most MMOs, but now it's just MSN. As for file-sharing, there's Limewire, not to mention the shared-folders system that comes with MSN. I've never used VoIP, but I know that more hardcore MMOers use it for faster and more convenient communication during team functions such as raids or guild wars, which is especially useful when the keyboard needs to be used at the… Continue

Google takes over the World

i think that my topic Google Takes Over the World is about how Google is constantly expanding and how it is becoming one of the biggest online companies in the world. As Google has grown it has been able to buy other online companies for example youtube, therefore this has allowed them to earn more money through advertising and other means. I think that this is a good topic because Google is used by everyone all over the world and therefore it means that everyone has some experience of Google… Continue

New technology such as RSS can be used to communicate information around the world in seconds. Web 2.0 encourages anyone with a low-end laptop and internet connection to be creative on the internet. We should be promoting its use because with relatively little effort people everywhere could study and… Continue

Some students and schools are also posting some video material to introduce themselves. This is a great way to get to know each other and to see the local environment of participants.

One of the problems with… Continue

The 7 'Cs' for surviving the Flat Classroom Project


Your mission is to connect with your team members and the other educators involved in this project.

Connections will take place asynchronously as well as synchronously.

Some of your partners will be on the exact opposite side of the world

so real-time connections will be a challenge. However you must make the

effort to connect. That first contact and then follow-up messages are

so important for reassuring your partners that you are… Continue
