Skype is my favorite tool so far, but I'm thinking of possibilities for each tool. When my mind wanders off on the possibilities, I find that I missed a few steps on the next thing! I 'll be glad to be able to take my time trying things out.

Mary,
This first day has made me into a techie maybegonnabe instead of a techie wannabe.

Each visit made each site's purposes and potentialities clear and accessible.

I can hardly wait to make use of these new tools.

Thank you!
Deb

I think all of the tools are awesome! I hope I can find time to become more familiar with them after the course is over. I never thought of using Twitter for professional development, but I love the idea.

Great to see all of the posts regarding todays class. As we move forward and use many of the tools you will see the connection to your personal network and ways to use in the classroom. Nice job on day one of learning about web 2.0.

I am enjoying all the tools. I just got a new Palm Pre that is synced with Google so I can access a lot of this from my phone. I missed this part of class, so I hope I am doing the right thing. I'll need some help uploading a YouTube video to my blog.
