Currently, however, more than half of employer respondents (54.2 percent) report new workforce entrants with a high school diploma to be “deficient” in this skill set.

Welcome everyone. My name is Cindy Wright, and I am an Instructional Technology Specialist with Columbus City Schools, in Columbus, Ohio. I’d like to share with you today some information regarding the newest Web 2.0 technologies and how they can have a positive impact in the classroom. My hope is that this presentation will encourage you to try at least one of the technologies I introduce. The presentation will be saved, and you will have access to it and my speaker notes after the session. So if I go too fast and you miss something on a screen, just keep in mind you can always view it again later at your own leisurely pace.
