  • Introduction: My name is David Widener and I am a Technology Specialist at a school near Atlanta, Georgia. This is my first time at FETC, and I am very excited to be presenting and of course to be in Orlando. I have been involved in teaching and technology twenty five years. I spent 19 years in the social studies classroom at the middle school and high school levels; and the last six years I have been the Director of Technology Instruction and Curriculum at the middle school level. Today we are going to talk about Web 2.0 and some ways to apply these tools into your classroom in a real and meaningful way. I am not going to list every tool—that would be impossible, but rather I hope to discuss some ways the “Big Three” (blogs, wikis, and podcasts) can be used alone and with other tools to create a Web 2.0 classroom.
