Good morning and welcome to The Ins & Outs of Web 2.0. My name is Jenifer Gossman. I am an eLearning coach for the EVSC (Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation). You might wonder why I am presenting at INPEC since I work in the public schools. This is a new position for me. I worked at Holy Redeemer in Evansville until August of this year. I also have three children that attend schools in the Evansville Dioceses. You will be introduced to many different tools during this presentation. Remember, it is only an introduction. All of the tools I will discuss could take up 45 minutes each to introduce and learn. If you remember anything from this presentation I hope it is this – just take one tool introduced and learn it then implement it in the classroom. It is overwhelming to attempt to learn every single tool there is so just pick one thing that really sparks in your mind and run with it. After you feel you have mastered that – then move to another tool.
You might wonder where “web 1.0” disappeared to – there wasn’t really a web 1.0 it was just the web. Originally the web was constructed as a way to inform people. Web 2.0 has shifted the way society thinks/views the web and communication. Tools/apps have been developed to allow people to work together remotely. The original web was static – meaning website were created to showcase products and knowledge. We have now moved into a more interactive way of thinking. Websites are much easier to design and share. Documents can be shared instantaneously.
