I presented on Web 2.0 tools and technology at Columbia University last week, which was an opportunity I just couldn’t pass up. Just wandering through the halls at the Teachers College was enough for me. But I also spoke to a small group of educators taking a year-long public engagement class, including teachers from a sister school college, Diné College, a public institution of higher education chartered by the Navajo Nation. It was fascinating.
Although the educators from Diné described their Internet access as “spotty, at best,” they were nothing short of gracious in learning more about how we use Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other social media tools here in my neck of the woods.
