Great Moon Gathering Conference, Cochrane, Ontario - February 17, 2011

Presented to seven James Bay coast teachers of primarily Aboriginal students covering the definition of Web 2.0, the use of social networking for professional development, Google as a collaboration tool, visual representation tools (Prezi), and digital storytelling. It was not possible to deliver the full planned presentation (2 1/2 hours) since the keynote speaker ran overtime and the participants arrive a minimum of 1/2 hour late. Participants were sent a wiki invitation so they can peruse the site at their leisure after the session.
