Some of you google blog followers are probably already familiar with the new, hot google application that recently dropped into the hands of 100,000 invitees. Google Wave has made its splash on the public as a new way to “communicate and collaborate in real time, anytime.” As one Classroom 2.0 ning user recently stated in a blog post: “Google wave will change education forever… and stands to be the most intuitive collaboration tool ever conceived.”
Sunday morning I woke up to the pleasant surprise of a Google Wave invitation in my gmail inbox. Like a child on Christmas I immediately opened the email and accepted the invite. It brought me to a fairly simple page with a few “waves” waiting for me… none of which I could truly begin to use, they were all locked and unable to accept new users (mostly because they were tutorials and examples.) Fortunately for me, google has provided me 20 invitations to pass around to potential new users.
I’m putting the call out to my PLN. Who would like to try out the Google Wave with me? @MagistraM of Reading High School has already stepped up, and recently received her invitation. I’d like to start a wave with educators to share ongoing conversations about anything that fits the waves fancy.
Would you like to ride the wave?
