Best Practices of Web Tool Integration in School: Web 2.0 Technology Integration Strategies in Education
Transcript of Best Practices of Web Tool Integration in School: Web 2.0 Technology Integration Strategies in Education
Web 2.0 Technology Integration Strategies in Education Technology is hard to plan for in classrooms due to limited time; however "a good window of opportunity to explore Web 2.0 tools is during the last couple of months of a school year. As the school year begins to wind down, students need to experience new learning strategies and challenges to keep them focused. These new challenges help avoid the typical end of school year fever, which often undermines learning." This article discussed three specific Web 2.0 tools. The three specific ones discussed were:
"Allow teachers to create a professional looking webpage for engaging students. Wikis allow uploading of curriculum materials such as documents, pictures, podcasts, links to appropriate websites, student resources, presentations, and more. Teachers can build their entire curriculum in their Wiki webpage, along with adding pages for students.
The main advantage with Wikis is that teachers can keep their curriculum updated with the latest data information, online materials, and resources. The ability to readily adapt curriculum and resource changes is an advantage traditional methods lack." Google Docs:
"An online word processing, presentation, form, and spreadsheet program provided free by Google. This tool provides students with a readily available place to complete homework, projects, and other class assignments. Google Docs is ideal for any subject to support writing, data collection and analysis, and communication skills.
The primary advantage of Google Docs is during group work and group assignments. Student groups can access any document, from anywhere with internet access, and all students in the group at the same time. This leads to greater collaboration, along with an increase in quality of finished products. Google Docs provides teachers the opportunity to provide comments in the document." Twitter
"Is real-time networking for teachers, allowing teachers to communicate beyond their classroom walls for support from other educators, 140 characters at a time. This can occur when a teacher requests assistance for curriculum support or shares a teachable moment with colleagues.
The main advantage of Twitter is improving teacher professional knowledge, collaboration, self-reflection, and ability to remain current with the latest news and trends in education. The second advantage is when students use this tool to collect information and data from other students around the world."
"Learning information integration using the three Web 2.0 tools discussed takes education, planning, and practice. The processes of working out problems that develop, both technological and pedagogical, are part of integrating new technological tools in a teacher’s curriculum. However, the potential of improving students’ understanding of concepts, not just learning, are worth overcoming these problems."
