Engaging Students in the Classroom With Web 2.0
Transcript of Engaging Students in the Classroom With Web 2.0
By: Clarisa Rosario Advisors: Dr. Smirnova and Dr. Lazarevic
Origin of Web 2.0
Types and Uses of Web 2.0
Interview with Mrs. Benfer
4th Grade Teacher, Bishop Dunn Memorial School
Certifications: Early/Elementary Education and Soon to be Special Education (1-6)
2. Engaging Projects
3. Endless Possibilities
Teachers are not familiar with Web 2.0 technology.
Although many teachers have SMART Board technology, they lack other ways to reach their students.
Rationale for Performing This Research
4. Survey Research - Teachers are using these Web 2.0 tools:
Future Expectations for Web 2.0
CAPs are educational lessons in the form of multimedia. One example is Vimeo, which has several instructional videos to browse and choose from!
CAPs - Content Acquisition
Students watch the lessons at home and apply them meaningfully in class!

Facilitating Active Learning With Web 2.0 Technology
What is Web 2.0?
What Internet technologies do you interact with?
Meet Our Team!
“Mimio-interactive software, Edmodo, Prezi”
“Document projector, SMART Board, Lab probes”
“Students have individual iPads to use at home and school, as well as response clickers to take quizzes and perform ongoing assessments.”
“SMART Board, iPads, Google Drive”
“United Streaming has some good educational videos and I use technology to help with all my lesson plans, using several sites for manipulatives, activities, and worksheets.”
“ABCYA is great - kids like that as well as Numbers Undercover and Recovered.”
“I often use Brainpop, the kids enjoy the quizzes and activities.”
“Moodle Wiki, Google Docs, SMART Board”
Cloud Computing Introduced

Rising demand for Internet accessibility!
The Apple iPhone Takes Flight
The First iPad
What's your email client?
There's an app for that!
The Mobile Revolution!
100% of teachers agree that technology has a powerful, positive impact on teaching and learning!
84% of teachers spend at least 50% of teaching time using educational technology.
Based on our research, we expect the usage of technology in the classroom, as well as the need for Web 2.0 training to greatly increase.
We asked teachers what kinds of Web 2.0 technologies they would like. Here are the responses:
A Message to Hesitant Web 2.0 Users:
Web 2.0 Tools in the Classroom
Web 2.0 Use in Mrs. Benfer's Class
BrainPOP - Students watch educational movies, play games, and take interactive quizzes on a variety of subjects!
The Elmo Document Projector
is used to present data, instruct students in a visual way, and interact with the entire classroom.
The SMART Board with projector attached is used in a variety of ways, which are discussed in a moment.
The SMART Board is hooked up to her laptop for when the Internet is needed to be accessed for a lesson.
Mrs. Benfer uses the document, presentation, spreadsheet, and forms creator:
Docs: Custom-create worksheets
Presentation: Make a slide show with the ability to collaborate with others in different locations
Spreadsheet: Keep track of data in a row by column matrix (think Microsoft Excel)
Forms: Create pre- and post-tests to assess student growth
SMART Board Technology
SMART Exchange contains many ready-made lesson plans!
"I use the tools I need, giving credit to the creators, and integrate them into my lesson plan."
Note: Hotmail has been phased out and replaced with Outlook.com mail.

Q: What are the Web 2.0 tools used in your classroom teaching, and what are they used for?
About the research process:
1. There is a vast amount of information about Web 2.0 to explore!
2. There were many roadblocks to acquiring data, including final exams and approval for our research.
3. I discovered that many teachers are either unfamiliar with Web 2.0 technologies or lack sufficient I.T. support and training to implement it.
A staggering 81 percent of teachers are unfamiliar with what Web 2.0 means.
The most surprising fact was the lack of PCs in the classrooms - only 15% of respondents reported having sufficient computers for students to work with.
According to our research, technology improves the way educators teach and the way students learn!
Although technology improves teaching and learning, there is not yet enough support for teachers to implement it.
As our research shows, teachers are very supportive of technology in the classroom. Workshops should be established that meet the needs of the students, curriculum planning, and district goals.
In order to continue being globally competitive, we cannot leave our teachers without updated resources and training. Hopefully through continued research and professional development, our teachers can continue to learn and grow so that our students can benefit.
