Twenty Web 2.0 Apps for Learning

» Posted by Jeanne Meister  » Posted on 10.22.09

James Clay had an excellent Pecha Kucha presentation recently talking about Twenty Web 2.0 Apps for Learning. If you have not already experienced Pecha Kucha, it was developed a few years ago in Tokyo and means “Chit Chat.” Essentially you give 20 slides in 20 seconds–think of it as a high speed journey on a topic. The presentation above uses it for giving a glossary of social media terms you may not be aware of.
I took the liberty of defining all the terms below. Let me know if you are using this in your presentations and what your experience has been.

  • Flickr Image and video sharing website.
  • Twitter A microblogging service where users communicate in short messages called “tweets” that are limited to 140 characters. As of September, 2009, Twitter raised an additional $50,000 from investors, and is valued at $1 Billion.
  • Etherpad A free online live collaboration site that enables simultaneous writing.
  • Screenr Instant screencasts for Twitter.
  • Posterous Allows for posting video, music, photo galleries, and documents to Twitter.
