A slideshow that accompanied a workshop on teaching with emergent technologies. I highlighted social bookmarking, Slideshare, collaborative writing, "google jockeying" and Wikipedia. I stress the level of comfort undergraduates have in producing and consuming on-line content and that educators could do well to capitalize on this trend.
