O'Reilly -- What Is Web 2.0 by Tim O'Reilly 09/30/2005 Oct. 2009: Tim O'Reilly and John Battelle answer the question of "What's next for Web 2.0?" in Web Squared: Web 2.0 Five Years On. The bursting of the dot-com bubble in the fall of 2001 marked a turning point for the web. Many people concluded that the web was overhyped, when in fact bubbles and consequent shakeouts appear to be a common feature of all technological revolutions. The concept of "Web 2.0" began with a conference brainstorming session between O'Reilly and MediaLive International. In the year and a half since, the term "Web 2.0" has clearly taken hold, with more than 9.5 million citations in Google. This article is an attempt to clarify just what we mean by Web 2.0. In our initial brainstorming, we formulated our sense of Web 2.0 by example: The list went on and on. 1. Like many important concepts, Web 2.0 doesn't have a hard boundary, but rather, a gravitational core. Netscape vs.

My Class Facebook: Screen shots Here are some screen shots showing how I used FB in the class this year. I posted a lot of pictures and videos but most of the examples below are other content for security reasons. We raised a caterpillar/butterfly and documented his growth and changes on FB. When the kids presented their animal project I videoed each of them and then posted the complete video on FB. Parents were able to see their child’s presentation this way. I like this example because it was one of the many times a parent posted something that extended or enriched our learning. We did quite a few graphs using parent data. I learned so much about the kids and their families through the comments. Like this: Like Loading...

ajax tutorial Introduction: Although the concept isn't entirely new, XMLHttpRequest technology is implimented on more sites now than ever. Compatibility is no longer an issue (IE, Mozilla and Opera all support it), and the benefits to using it are amazing. There are too many PHP programmers avoiding any work with JavaScript beyond simple form validation, and for good reason. It's difficult to keep several languages proficiently under your belt. But using the XMLHttpRequest object is not as hard as everybody thinks, and you don't need to buy and memorize another reference manual. Let's Get To It! Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, or AJAX is a method of sending and receiving data (usually XML) from a server-side application through javascript. As PHP developers, it might seem tempting to avoid the use of Javascript and leave it to the dsigner. If you're working for a small or medium sized company interested in implementing AJAX solutions, you might end up responsible for figuring out how. Variables:

Technology Focus: The Learning In college I remember learning about how important it was to always mention the child first when discussing special needs. They are children first so it was important to say a “child with autism” rather than an “autistic child”. I had never thought of the importance of that before discussing it in class but that really hit home with me and I have always tried to make sure not only mentioned the child first but made sure to recognize the child before the disability. That lesson came to mind this week when I was asked about technology goals. Someone mentioned to me their goal was to use more technology in the room and asked what I suggested. This teacher is doing great things in the class and we chatted about ideas to increase the technology in her room. Click each one for an example: - Helps my students connect with the outside world - Helps us document learning - Allows us to do or see things we couldn’t without the tool - Encourages creativity - Gives my students a voice in their learning
