The Power of Collective Intelligence Part 2

On Friday I will be presenting and facilitating at Arrowhead Union High School District in Hartland, Wisconsin.  Many 21st century assessment topics and web 2.0 literacy tools will be introduced to engage and motivate educators and students, while identifying key student outcomes matched with the right learning tools to document student and educator technology proficiency.  One of the tools that I will introduce to this school district is Wiffitti: http://wiffiti.com/  a unique and powerful mobile backchannel chat to capture the learning essence of the day's events and hands-on technology sessions throughout the school building in multiple sessions at one time. This backchannel chat will provide the opportunity to showcase the "the power of collective intelligence" within a school district environment, but also note how- and when others are invited in from outside the "bricks and sticks" of the school walls, the global literacy perspective of the virtual world professionals can also contribute to the collective intelligence as a larger community.

Please feel free to join in on the educational backchannel chat to share your expertise from a global community perspective and to be part of our teaching and learning day virtually! Access the weblink at http://wiffiti.com/screens/39752 or feel free to text @wif39752 + your message to 87884  See flash image preview below for real-time updates as well.  Thanks or sharing your global voice with us and your expertise!



Another backchannel chat we will tap into to document the educator's progression of learning will be the tool of TodaysMeet. Our live chat will take place at http://todaysmeet.com/ArrowheadUnion with a Twitter hashtag of #ArrowheadUnion
