  • Today we’re going to explore several tools that will help with organization, classroom collaboration and communication, and tools for global multimedia publishing. These will all be tools that focus on what I call the 3 Cs of Web 2.0 that have the strongest impact on K-12 education.
  • Does it mean you’re a digital teacher if you have a wireless lab in your classroom? Do you have to use technology every day? I think being a digital teacher means you have a strong baseline of technology tools available to you and your students. It doesn’t mean you have to use 6 different tools that all do the same thing. It also does not mean that we use a tool because it’s flashy. The focus still needs to be on the learning.
  • Communicate, Collaborate, and Curate
  • Graphic with a bunch of Web 2.0 logos
  • Does this picture remind you of anything? I think I heard someone say, “My desk!” Yikes. Next, let’s talk about some tools that help with organization, which if you’re like me, you might need more than one tool to help stay organized! I’m going to share a few of my (current) favorites.
  • Next let’s look at tools for collaboration. As we move further into the 21st century, I believe classroom and workplace technology are going to further “break down the walls” around us.
  • Now let’s talk about tools that are great for collaboration. These could be used for collaboration among teaching staff or as a collaboration tool for students to use on a group project. Next, we’re going to talk about tools that foster creativity. Before we look at some, watch a portion of this video by Sir Ken Robinson called “Do schools kill creativity?”
