Transcript of Technology Tools for the Elementary Classroom

Why Web 2.0?
It’s social and interactive.
It’s free.
It’s outside
It’s about making connections.
It’s simple…but there’s help.
It can help make your teaching and assessing more effective.
It’s a part of your students’ world.
You don’t need a great computer, and you sometimes don’t need a computer at all.
It’s ubiquitous.
It’s yours.
But...
Technology doesn’t solve problems or make teachers better.
Don’t throw out your curriculum.
Face-to-face is essential
You don't have to rush.
You don't have to do it all at once.
Blogs
Wikis
What is a Wiki?
The definition of Wiki, according to Wikipedia, “is a website that allows the visitors themselves to easily add, remove, and otherwise edit and change available content, typically without the need for registration. This ease of interaction and operation makes a wiki an effective tool for mass collaborative authoring.”

An elementary class “encyclopedia” on a special topic, such as explorers or state history – to be continued and added to each year!
A virtual tour of your school as you study “our community” in elementary grades
A travelogue from a field trip or NON- field trip that the class would have liked to take as A culmination of a unit of study: Our (non) trip to the Capital and what we (wish) we saw.
Detailed and illustrated descriptions of scientific or governmental processes: how a bill becomes a law, how mountains form, etc.
A wiki “fan club” for your favorite author(s).
Family Twaditionwiki- elementary students share their family’s ways of preparing Thanksgiving dinner or celebrating birthdays (anonymously, of course) and compare them to practices in other cultures they read and learn about.
A Where is Wanda wiki: a wiki version of the ever-favorite Flat Stanley project. Have each Wanda host post on the wiki, including the picture they take with Wanda during her visit. Even better: keep an ongoing Google Earth placemarker file to add geographic visuals to Wanda’s wonderful wanderings as a link in the wiki. WOW! Where in the world IS Wiki Wanda?

What are the benefits of classroom blogging?

Kids love blogging.
Students who lack the reading and writing skills they need to succeed also may lack the motivation to practice those skills. Many are motivated, however, to chat virtually with their friends.
Seeing their words published on the Web is a great student motivator.
Blogs offer an innovative way for students to engage in reflective writing on classroom topics in a familiar medium.
Blogs represent a democratization of information dissemination, providing each individual with the opportunity to publicly present his or her thoughts and opinions.
Students who know they have an audience other than their teacher write more credibly, accurately, and carefully.
Blogs allow others to respond, providing feedback to the authors.
