Carol Kelly on Managing Change

Excerpted resources for educators adapting to Web 2.0 / Library 2.0, from Carol Kelly, Salem State College.


Guiding Questions:

1. How have the significant technology innovations of the past ten years effected the students we teach?

2. In order to be effective teachers, is it necessary for us to change the way we teach our students, either pedagogically or technically?

3. What broad issues of special concern or interest to LMS and ITS people, for example, student safety, management of information, outreach to teachers, are inherent in all of the new technologies?
