Nsta Web20 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Web 2.0 in the Classroom Collaborative Learning Tools for Science NSTA Regional Conference 2009 Phoenix, Arizona Stephen Best University of Michigan School of Education
  • 2. Objectives
  • 3. Objectives • Review the common practices of science and see possible online collaborative tools to support these practices
  • 4. Objectives • Review the common practices of science and see possible online collaborative tools to support these practices • Discuss the considerations of using Web 2.0 tools to support science learning and instruction
  • 5. Objectives • Review the common practices of science and see possible online collaborative tools to support these practices • Discuss the considerations of using Web 2.0 tools to support science learning and instruction • Review examples of applications of commonly used Web 2.0 tools for science instruction and learning
  • 6. What does “Web 2.0” mean? • Focus is not just on content, but on collaboration and sharing • Underlying technology of these sites is different from the “static” sites of the past • Nearly a defunct term now, as many sites have incorporated these interactive and collaborative tools
  • 7. The Practices of Learning Science • Document creation / note-taking • Brainstorming / concept mapping • Drawing and diagramming • Data collection and analysis • Researching and reading text and information • Viewing images or video • Presentations and sharing information
  • 8. Where to start? • Before you try finding tools, decide what the purpose of the use of these tools is going to be! • http://www.go2web20.net/ • Choose the tools that are likely to stick around for a while (i.e. they are backed by actual $) • Limit the number of tools you intend to use
  • 9. Document Creation/Notes • Lots of possible tools that allow collaboration • Google Docs or other web-based “office” tools • Note taking applications that allow for easy searching and navigation (Evernote, Zoho, or similar) • Wikis can also be used for a large set of information and tracking of collaborative efforts
  • 10. Brainstorming/ Concept Mapping • Depends on the goal and functionality of the tools • Generally better left to other means, but there are tools that allow for this • Spinscape, MindManager, and other tools for the web (similar to Inspiration) • Expect more of these to come along in the near future...
  • 11. Drawing & Diagramming Option 1: Option 2: • Capture of your paper/ • Creation of online writing efforts or... drawings, diagrams, and designs • Note-taking or document collection • Bamboo space and sites like Evernote other drawing and diagramming sites • Picture capture sites like Flickr • Allow multiple media and multiple “artists”
  • 12. Data Collection / Analysis • It all depends on the types of data... • Numerical data: online spreadsheets (Google Docs) • Instrument specific data: content site tools (i.e. Weather Underground) • Observation data: Text can use wikis and online documents (i.e. Google or Zoho Docs) • Image/Video data: Flickr and other image sites
  • 13. Research and Reading Text • Google Books and Google Scholar • Wolfram Alpha (scientific search engine) • iPaper or other document reading sites • Delicious, Digg, and other content review sites • More basic text tools (blogs, wikis, etc.) • Note taking tools that allow for web clipping
  • 14. Viewing Images and Video • Common image and video viewing sites (Flickr, Photobucket, YouTube, Vimeo) • Content specific images and video (NASA, U.S. Geological Survey, etc.) • Participant submitted video (TestToob, TeacherTube, etc.)
  • 15. Presentations and Sharing Information • Slide creation and presentation sites (280 slides, Google Presenter, etc.) • Slide sharing sites (Slideshare, etc.) • Video sites (slides exported as video- podcasts, downloadable/streaming video, etc.) • Online document sharing (Scribd iPaper or others) • New tools (Prezi)
  • 16. Assessment • Does not depend on the tool • Use the collaboration features of any of the tools, and establish useful rubrics for collaborative assessment • More important to develop the guidelines and procedures for using any of the previously mentioned sites
  • 17. Some New Tools to Consider • Search tools that will change things: Wolfram Alpha, Next generation of Google, ? • Collaboration tools that address multiple aspects of the process: Google Wave, WebEx, GoToMeeting... • Tools for small devices that customize data for a particular function (including augmented reality applications)
