Active Learning • Students engage in activities such as problem solving that promote analysis, synthesis, and evaluation of class content. • Cooperative learning, problem- based learning, and the use of case methods and simulations are some approaches that promote active learning.
Social Applications are linking people not just information. Weare using and sharing information in new ways: – User-generated content – User-generated filtering – User-generated organization – User-generated distribution
Web 2.0 Project Ideas for Your Classroom• Class Commons - No matter the size of your class, having all the students in a social learning space brings them all together.• Course Blog - Create a class blog and share it publicly to let others know what your class is learning and doing.

Use Invite by Email feature to invite authors (or guest lecturers) and allow students to interact with the visitor.• Use comments and feedback to extend the conversation beyond just posting to wikis and blogs.• Include students who may have to be absent and engage them with buddies to help them get their work.
Collaborative Math Projects• Show Your Work: Students show detailed steps about how to solve a math problem.• Problem Solving : Students work together to solve a word problem provided by the teacher.• Famous Mathematicians: Students research a famous mathematician and create wiki with the findings.
Collaborative Science Projects• Body Systems: Students create wiki pages on the different organ systems in the body.• Planets: Groups work to research a planet and post findings and pictures on a wiki.• Animal Classification: Groups choose to research animals and create a wiki of research findings.
