If you are interested in booking me (Wesley Fryer) for a presentation or workshop (either face-to-face or over video) please visit my Speaking page on www.speedofcreativity.org/speaking.


Update 25 August 2010:

In 2010 I am transitioning to the website wiki.wesfryer.com for my handout and presentation/workshop links. I'm not taking content here on PBworks offline, but I have added this "update header" to all my pages as well as adding direct links to more updated versions of these pages as I mirror them / create them on wiki.wesfryer.com. There are 146 pages here on teachdigital.pbworks.com. - You can browse these in page view in addition to using the four category links provided on the homepage. Note this wiki was previously mapped to "handouts.wesfryer.com" but that domain mapping is no longer available.


Stay updated on my latest posts by following me on Twitter, my blog ("Moving at the Speed of Creativity") and Facebook.

Powerful Tools, Powerful Possibilities


An amazing array of digital tools are now available for anyone connected to the Internet to use and share his/her voice with the world using text, audio, and video. The emergence of this read/write web (called "web 2.0 by some" is both exciting and scary to many. In this session we'll explore many of these tools which can be used to communicate and collaborate on the global stage. We'll discuss the ethical responsibility which comes with using powerful tools like these, and explore ways learners of all ages can safely and legally use these tools to create and share digital stories, music, and socially network online with others. The age of the read/write web has dawned. Let's use these tools safely, legally, and responsibly to CREATE, COLLABORATE, and develop the literacy skills required to thrive in the 21st century!


This presentation was shared as the keynote address for the 21 January 2007 "STAR Tech: Technology for the Next Generation" student conference in Salina, Kansas. An audio podcast of that session is available.
