- For our covering an event project in JRMC 2202, Ahmed Refai, Moataz Al-Qammari and I will be attending the event 'Web 2.0 as a Transformative and Learning Tool Workshop,' facilitated by Gihan Osman and Nadine Aboulmagd. We will be tweeting the event live at the American University in Cairo (AUC) taking place at the AUC Library at 12:45 p.m. The event will cover a general overview of web 2.0, including blogs and wikis, and how to use them in the class room.
- The workshop is about to start!
- Nadine Aboulmagd starts us off with welcoming everyone to the workshop and giving a brief introduction about web 2.0.
- Blogs encourage critical thinking, information literacy, allows the learner to collaborate and to stay connected. It gives students a voice, they control the content and what gets published, therefore, they are creators of knowledge.
- Dr. Gihan Osman talking about how blogs could be integrated in teaching and how to use it in a classroom.
- Aboulmagd telling us about her own personal blog called, 'here's to firsts,' reflecting upon her new experiences and shares her knowledge with everyone.
- Aboulmagd talks about how blogs enable students to reflect on what they write and how easy it is it can be shared among other students and the professor.
- Dr. Gihan Osman asked the attendees a question which is, 'how would you use blogs in your class? and what would be the challenges you would face?'
- Wikis allow users to collaboratively edit content and structure and allows sharing this content with everyone or even just the classroom.

- Dr. Chelsea Green, World Music Professor, decided that her students themselves will create their own textbook, since they never read the required text book anyway. It lets students engage in and out of class, more responsibility, more accessible and user-friendly, and each student researches a specific topic and shares this knowledge with the rest of the students.
- Ahmed Refai asking Nadine Aboulmagd about the future of web 2.0.
- That's the end of the workshop!
