For your lesson redesigns, you may wish to use some web 2.0 technology. Here are some sites/tools you can explore.
Goals: play, experiment, make mistakes. If you find one tool/site that really captures your interest feel free to hang out there the whole time. If you feel like sampling a number of different sites, that’s fine too.
Be prepared to share what you learned about the site and possible classroom applications.
