Keynote: Introducing Web 2.0 into Your Classroom: A Project Management Approach
Description: What it will be is a very pragmatic approach to introducing the use of Web 2.0 applications, looking at 15 benefits of treating it as a proper project, and then the reasons why projects tend to fail. I will also look at the main concerns that contributors to the Amazing Web 2.0 Projects book (and others) had about introducing Web 2.0 into their classroom, and their recommendations.
