Adventures in Web 2.0: Introducing Social Networking into My Teaching
Moorman, Honor
Horace, v25 n1 Sum 2009
Five months ago, the author introduced Web 2.0 technology to her students, and already, there is a story to tell. Integrating a social networking site into her teaching has been even more challenging and will prove to be even more beneficial than she could have imagined. By sharing her story, the author hopes that she can provide a road map for educators who are new to Web 2.0 and challenge those well-acquainted with it to take the Web 2.0 adventure to the next level. She shares how she integrated the use of the Internship Ning, a social networking site that serves as a virtual classroom where students can discuss their internships, exchange ideas, and offer feedback and support to one another. This gives them the opportunity to benefit from everyone's insights and experiences in addition to their own. The site also has the potential to become a learning network that will link their school community with the professional community in new and dynamic ways.
