Are you interested in collaborating with other scholars working in the area of teacher education?
Start your own collaborations using free web-based networking technologies.
Our webmaster recommends:Social Bookmarking, Blogging, and RSS technologies. It's possible (although this requires a little work) to upload Endnote library references, and it is certainly very simple to bookmark journal articles you locate while browsing internet databases. You can start your own group, post a personal profile, build commentaries using the built-in blogging feature, and get notifications when new articles are posted by your collaborators. You can 'tag ' your bookmarked articles, and search for articles based on keywords; ultimately building your own collaborative teacher education folksonomy. This technology is our Webmaster's pick of the tools currently available.
Tagging Tip- For Creating an ATEA Folksonomy
Be sure to tag all relevant articles you find with 'ATEA', so that when you or other members of our teacher educator community search using ATEA as a keyword, you retrieve the pool of all teacher education publications we are collecting as an educational community.
Other collaborative online tools you might want to explore include:
- WorldCat - Very similar to CiteULike, with easy export of citations to Endnote libraries.
- Skype in conjunction with the Yugma Team Collaboration add-on - Uses Online Chat , VOIP and VNC technologies to allow you to talk over the phone with a colleague in a remote location, while sharing your desktop, and co-authoring a document as if you were sitting next to each other.
- 4Teachers - Offers a set of free online tools for use with your students.
- Finally, iIf you have your own server, you might want to consider a free, open source, learning management system like Sakai or Moodle .
