Carol and I spent 45 minutes talking to a group of teachers at the Illinois Reading Conference today. They were very gracious and seemed to soak up the information. Here is our presentation (I published it to SplashCast): Presentation
Much of what I shared is from Alan November – amazing stuff that is so useful and so powerful. I talked about Google Bombing and gave a couple of examples. First, my former student, Trevor showed his students how it works by having a group website link put on all the pages possible in the school website. Within a day, the site went to the top of Google. The other example happened right here in Cycle Through. I participated with many other ed tech bloggers in redirecting links to the MLK site. Look through the Cycle Through archives for the specifics.
Fun stuff …
One of the tools that I use all the time is the Wayback Machine. Anytime I want access to a site that is no longer available I just put the URL in and tada! It’s great.
Really fun stuff!
Ok, on to Expanding Your Horizons on Saturday – Internet Safety.
