Transcript of Web 2.0
Support Student Learning and Engagement!
Why Web 2.0?
Research documents the value in the implementation of these tools
The "big question" nature of Web 2.0 projects enable students to extend learning and make connections
Web applications facilitate interactive information sharing and collaboration
Web 2.0 is user centered and learning is self directed
The best part: it is easy to use and implement!
Obstacles for K-12 Educators
Lack of teacher interest
Formal school or district policies may prevent ease of use
Technology does not solve problems or make teachers better
Kids take the reigns
Web 2.0 tools provide opportunities that kids need to read, write, view, listen, and record
as well as
collaborate, participate, and share knowledge and expertise
Outside of school, many students ARE accomplished authors, filmmakers, animators, and recording artists!
Reoccurring Concerns for Teachers

How do I get them engaged in classroom conversation and activities?
WEB 2.0 can help!
to Overcome Obstacles
Be a student yourself

Blabberize Photos which define vocabulary words used within a specific lesson/project.
Students can find characters from a novel and record their favorite line or lines from the story that best suit them. Classmates can talk together to determine character traits.

How to use Word Clouds in the Classroom
