Hi Chris. I really appreciate the material you are posting. This video in particular is helpful in promoting the use of Web 2.0 applications in Canadian classrooms with teachers who don't see themselves as particularly competent with technology.

I work as an assistive technology consultant with special needs students on Vancouver Island. So many of the Web 2.0 apps facilitate UDL (universal design for learning). It turns out that what works well for kids with special needs is often incredibly helpful for many many others!

If you haven't already visited, you might be interested in my blog. The focus is on free educational resources. Unfortunately, I haven't had much time for this hobby lately. (paulhami.edublogs.org)

Thanks again. --Paul
