New web, media and mobile applications, or widgets, and new devices, or gadgets, bring innovative resources to the hands of students and faculty. These tools have been extensively used in Blackboard and now have been extended to Canvas. Dr. Lepervanche’s Web Media Lab (www.webmedialab.org) has been also testing these widgets and gadgets applying both Technology Acceptance and Affordability Models to explore real usability beyond courses into real life.

The World Is Open: How Web Technology Is Revolutionizing Education – Curtis J. Bonk explores ten key trends that together make up the WE-ALL-LEARN framework for understanding the potential of technology in learning in the 21st century.  (http://www.worldisopen.com). Dr. Sheri Litt gave us the book as a end-of-term present with the homework to read it during the summer. I will present a review to faculty during the fall.

During last Teaching and Learning Conference Dr. Julie Giuliani mad a presentation about wide open web 2.0 tools for online education and made reference to this book. Her husband Joe Giuliani is a chef who teaches cooking online (http://www.cookingedu.com). The cartoon reflects their interests in web 2.0 education.
