Why taking notes by hand actually matters: "Digitizing Literacy: Reflections on the haptics of writing"
- "The top ten jobs that will be in demand in 2010 didn't exist in 2004."
- "We are currently preparing students for jobs that don't yet exist, using technologies that haven't been invented, in order to solve problems we don't even know are problems yet." (Richard Riley, former Secretary of Education in the United States) ....in this context, approaching things using a same-old, same-old approach is unlikely to be successful.

On-line Communication tools


Welcome to the writing & note-keeping tool (called "a wiki") that you can use with your projects & class. It will allow you to keep notes, your comments, your data, etc. on-line. You can also use it to write an entire research paper, inserting graphics, tables, graphs and so on. New to wiki's? Go to GettingStarted for a brief introduction.  "http://131.202.10.204/audiofiles/HomePage_Para1.MP3"

There are "simple" ways of using this tool, but as you use it more and more you'll find that there can be quite sophisticated and powerful ways of using this tool as well. But you don't have to use it that way! If you don't have lots of experiences with computers, just use it as a note-taking tool at first....and then learn how to use the more advanced features as you go along.  "http://131.202.10.204/audiofiles/HomePage_Para2.MP3"
Create Spreadsheets, Blogs, Forums, New Pages....
How to use the wiki...
Create graphics & drawings, insert them on pages....


If this is your first time using a wiki, go to ExampleHomePage to see how you can set up your own home page.  "http://131.202.10.204/audiofiles/HomePage_Para3.MP3"

At any point you can get to searchable HELP for using the wiki tools by clicking on "Help" on the tool menu.
