Hey, like the new banner?
When I was talking with other Tech Liaisons a few weeks ago in Chico, Writely was one of the hot topics. With the potential for real-time collaboration, Writely finally delivers what many teachers using technology in their writing classrooms have been asking for over the past many years that Word couldnâ€™t seem to deliver (at least not in a user-friendly fashion). Along with real-time editing, it can save versions for quick comparisons, invite collaborators, be published easily to a blog or website, be tracked with RSS, and be saved online. No more lost disks (or, is it jump drives now?). I will write more on Writely later, but this is just a brief overview of some of its capabilities.
At any rate, I thought that I would try to make a decent banner and create the image as the link. I stole some CSS code from Rob, who assured me that I would figure this out on my own some day. Well, I did, with a little helpâ€¦

Here, Tonya has captured me in a frantic state, trying to encode an MP3 in Audacity, download the Our Media installer, and trying to run one of our group sessions. Yikes!
I guess that this reminds me how often I take for granted the fact that I can usually multi-task without too many problems and when the technology gets in the way, it can be a real stumbling block for anyone. A good thing to keep in mind when facilitating any tech workshop…
