    • “ Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” Picasso
    • Young people already use many of the Web 2.0 tools that have been shared today.
    • The challenge is students don’t have direction in how to use them in a meaningful way.
    • As educators we can tap into the tools students are using to help them become empowered and to take ownership of their own learning.
    • Most of these Web 2.0 tools work in concert with each other.
  • 14.
    • Students need the opportunity to contribute to our society in a meaningful, authentic, relevant, connected way.
    • Using Web 2.0 tools facilitates collaboration, self directed learning, and provides an opportunity to share with a global audience.
    • We must ask our students: “What do you have to say?” Then, use these tools to enable them to say it!
