Olympics via Web 2.0
I have been following the olympics all weekend, not from my television, but from my computer. I have found some incredible footage of the opening ceremonies, and other olympic highlights that I cannot wait to share with my class. I have been kept up to date by following the numerous olympic blogs and various tweets from my Twitter account. Technology has made it possible for us to hear and possibly view these events quickly and easily. In class we will be tracking Canada's progress easily via the web. By the end of this study 2F students will indeed be very media literate.
My parents are currently visiting my brother in Vancouver and are having great fun taking in all of the olympic festivities. They have sent some photos for us to enjoy from their walk today along the paths of English Bay.
If you come across any great websites for us to use during our olympic study please forward them to us. My favourite site to get up to date information is definitely CTV Olympics. There are some great videos as well.
