Just Do It! New Internet Literacies

Will Richardson, supervisor of instructional technology at a high school in New Jersey, energized the Internet@Schools East conference with his rapid-fire keynote this morning. An evangelist for wikis, blogs and the read-write web where everyday people, including kids and teachers can create content, Richardson entertained and instructed—and challenged attendees to learn to use tools like these, plus RSS, audiocasting, and video and photo blogging in their classrooms.

Let kids create content, Richardson says, and how to find resources, link to them, and use to them—and they can probably do it better than we can, because they have “hypertext minds.”

Hear more from Will later this morning in CIL Session A202 (International Ballroom Center) at 11:30 a.m., where he’ll be talking about wikis and libraries.
