Two new videos appeared on YouTube from my favorite folks over at the CommonCraft Show. As you may know from previous postings, I really appreciate Lee Lefevre's ability to break down technologies for the inexperienced or uncomfortable user. I am hoping to use his videos in a Technology Forum for Faculty to explain 2.0 technologies that are often thrown around but not often explained. His emphasis on applicability, HOW to use the technology in real life, is especially appropriate to coping with Faculty resistance to technology.
Or, as he points out in his description through YouTube, "We made this video for people who wonder why social networking sites are so popular. We think one reason is because they help to solve a real world problem."
Once again, the value of YouTube, 2.0, and making clear explanations about what technology is and why it can help us in our everyday lives!
