I have already found some examples, but it seems like I have a hard time finding higher education ones (or at least education ones in general). So here's my current list:
- Hotseat at Purdue University. This Twitter-like application lets students ask questions and vote for the ones that the Instructor should answer.
- The Twitter Experiment at UT Dallas. An experiment by Monica Rankin, Professor of History at UT Dallas.
- Roosevelt High School's Use of Social Media. The focus of this video is to demonstrate how student engagement is key to success.
- Diigo - 21st Century Tool for Research, Reading and Collaboration. A post about why Diigo is a good tool for education.
- Ustream for sick student: Just a Tweet I saw today that made me realize how easy it is to let an external audience attend your live event.
- Lynnette Claire on Student Entrepreneurship Videos. Students film a short documentary about a local business and share it with other students and community members at the end of the semester.
- Using a Flip Video Camera in the Classroom. This instructional video explains ways to take advantage of a low-end video camera for use in the classroom.
Please share any good examples I should consider for my workshop as comments below, and I will share them back in this post. Make me proud of my personal learning network so I can brag about how you guys rock! ;-)
UPDATE: I have created a tag in Diigo/Delicious to keep track of these examples and the new ones I will find: http://delicious.com/mathplourde/SMPracticesTraining
I also recorded the video of a brainstorming session about the content of the final workshop and used Wallwisher to move stuff around.
