Collaboration for PD

There are several tools that you can use for staff development that extend the initial workshop.

Podcasting: I think that portions of staff development could be recorded and then podcasted through the workshop's Web site. See the Wikipedia entry on FURL and offer syndicated bookmarks.

Wikis: I frequently set up a wiki page when I teach workshops or do a presentation where a significant number of participants have laptops and wireless access to the net. They take notes in the wiki space, creating a collaborative notebook for the session, which is then available after the workshop or presentation is over.
