Will Richardson speaks to Ontario Teachers

Earlier this fall I was able to attend a presentation by Will Richardson.
I had read his book, (Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms (Paperback)by Will Richardson (Author) "Tim Berners-Lee had a grand vision for the Internet when he began development of the World Wide Web in 1989..." ) and have personally been interested in technology and educations for many years.
I enjoy the challenge of learning the new tools and expanding my own learning and bringing what I find into the classroom.
He provided us with a wealth of useful information and links and I have been testing out many of his suggeted resources since that day. Check out his materials, well worth the time!

Challenges include the Administration, access to technology tools, need to provide safe and secure environments, but the biggest challenge is a shift in pedagogy for educators.
