T

he most powerful and effective use of Web tools and
mobile technologies is in connecting, creating, and sharing
information. Using Web tools or mobile apps, students and
teachers alike can make wonderful representations of their
learning and showcase their understanding in a way that was not possible
before. More valuable still is the concept that people from all over the
world can use these tools to connect with one another and help contribute
to the learning process. Teachers and students can collaborate on social
platforms, forming a community of learners and showcasing the work that
they are creating together. These tools are only as powerful as the ideas of
those using them in new and innovative ways. Typing an essay on a tablet is
not innovative or any more educationally sound than writing it with a pencil
and paper, but using real-time collaborative tools and creating multimedia
projects as a team to share the end product with educators and peers
around the world for meaningful qualitative feedback is a powerful use of
these technologies.

“People from all over the world can use these
tools to connect with one another and help
contribute to the learning process.”

Key Lessons
1

Web tools promote and
allow users to connect,
create, and share
information.

2

Web and mobile technologies
allow users from all over
the world to connect and
contribute to the learning
process.

3

This collaboration can
result in meaningful,
instant feedBACK.

I remember creating video projects with my students when I taught high
school English: They were great, but there was no way for us to share the
videos socially (YouTube and other such sites had not yet been created).
The world of technology opens these opportunities, and great work
can now be shared in an instant with a growing number of connected
educators. Technology is only as valuable as the ideas its users generate
and share.
