We had a great time at the Web 2.0 All-You-Can-Eat Buffet workshop in San Antonio.

All of the resources we shared are available for anyone to access, share, and use in any setting in the Web 2.0 All-You-Can-Eat Buffet wiki.

Here is the “roadmap” and some quick start guides for the workshop.


Over the past year, I have been working on strategies for differentiating PD. I am more convinced than ever that a great way to provide meaningful, hands-on, inquiry-driven PD is with a wiki and a “road map” that lets people work at their own level. I am trying to do less and less presentation at my workshops. I sometimes get a few comments from people who prefer a slower, step-by-step walk-through of each thing we’re doing, but most people like what I think is a more authentic and meaningful approach to PD. Here are some comments people have made about this:

    “I liked being able to work at my own pace. ”

    “[The wiki] was great! Everything you need to know or to have for review will be available in one easy location anytime I want it!”

    “Great hands on approach. I learn best when I can do it myself.”

    “These kinds of topics need time for exploration and right-at-the-time questions.”

    “I liked the break up of overview and hands on. This allowed participants to play and ask questions when needed.”

    “Great balance and I did not feel guilty when I was working on the laptop.” [Presenter’s notes: I didn’t see anyone doing email or other “off-task” things during the copious hands-on time. This made me feel good!]

    Great post, thanks for sharing. I totally agree with your approach as after all we should be modeling effective pedagogy for the 21st century. We are all learners.
    Would love to see your “roadmap” and quick start guides but unfortunately the link wouldn’t work.

    Should be fixed now! Thanks for catching this.
