Learning at School 08

I have been asked to present a workshop at learning at schools to represent our cluster - we are going into our third year. I am working with someone else and we have been throwing round some ideas today. We thought we would give participants a quick look at blogging in the classroom, using wikis and skype and skrbl.. I know this sounds like a lot but we have created a wiki which has links to examples of and instructions for each of these. Would give about half an hour for each... In the submission we have called our workshop "Using Web 2.0 tools to enhance Key Competencies" We thought that throughout our workshop people could be discussing how each of these tools contribute to the development of Key Competencies. Also that participants could be contributing to the wiki throughout it. How does this sound?

Do you use / plan to use the Inquiry Model in your school too?
