Blog 2: Investigation

We can use the internet to discover and solve problems about the world. To discuss the problems and find solutions with others around the world we can have flat classroom conferences.
To let the world know about the world we can use RSS feeds to always get information and get it updated. When this happens, we can use many things to raise awarenesss on that problem such as using piczo, wikispaces, blogger to make websites about the problem, we can also make groups that support the problems on social community websites such as facebook, messenger. You can also create informative emails and send it to your friends and they can send it to more and more friends and it can end going around the world.
I can make use of the online tools by using them such as using facebook, to make a group and send around to friends, ask them to join and send it around.
The best online tools are facebook, since numbers of many people use and just sending it to one person can make it end up going around the world. We can also use i'm such as skype, msn, yahoo, aol, gtalk. These are also i'm websites that we can use to have conferences these can be vocal or word conferences were many people can talk at once and chat with each other. Blogger, piczo and wikispaces is also a good tool to use to make informative websites that everyone can see. You can also make videos with pictures and music using ANIMOTO, and many people around the world can watch it. The last tool that we can use is VOICE THREAD, it is a website which allows you to make a video, with only pictures, but you can add your voice and words. You cna use this to make informative videos to describe the problem, and it can be showed in a presentation or viewed around the world by many.
