East Shikoku JALT:

Workshop on Web 2.0 Technologies in Education

Date: Saturday, February 2nd, 2008 Time: 10:20 AM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Michael Vallance (Hakodate Future University), Gordon Bateson (Kanazawa University), Takahiro Ioroi (Kochi Women's University), Mark Shrosbree (Tokai University)

Today's global learning environments have benefited tremendously from the emergence of web 2.0, the revolutionary second generation of web-based platforms and services. Web 2.0 technologies such as podcasts, mobile blogs and video sharing have the potential to greatly enhance and promote interaction and the social construction of knowledge both inside and outside the classroom. In Japan, mobile technology is ubiquitous; as a result there are numerous possibilities for integrating the technology that students are already using in their personal lives into pedagogy and curriculum design. This colloquium, with its hands-on workshops, will allow participants to explore Web 2.0 technologies and their relationship with education and pedagogy, and to benefit from the practical experience of expert practitioners.
