Taking a Leap

For the past 3 months I have been working with educators from various Jersey City Public Schools, on a Leap 21 Technology Initiative.

It has pretty much been a boot camp on web 2.0 and various applications including but not limited to blogging, glogging, podcasting, video production, voicethread, rss feeds, Google tools, etc. I even convinced some participants to get on Twitter.
