Web 2.0 Tools For Education

  1. 1. Creating Self Directed Learners!
  2. 2. <ul><li>Web 1.0 generally refers to the static web pages and sites that existed in the early days of the internet. </li></ul><ul><li>Web 2.0 is the new web. It is a rich media based internet where users can create content and share it with the world. </li></ul><ul><li>Students are immersed in a Web 2.0 world! </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>The challenge for educators is tapping into the tools that many students use on a daily basis at home and with the portable devices they carry with them each day. </li></ul><ul><li>Most of the Web 2.0 tools are freely available on the world wide web, and they are excellent collaboration tools. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Blogs </li></ul><ul><li>Wikis </li></ul><ul><li>Skype </li></ul><ul><li>RSS Readers </li></ul><ul><li>Podcasts (audio and video) </li></ul><ul><li>Tutorial Creation Tools </li></ul><ul><li>YouTube </li></ul><ul><li>Other Tools </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Blogs are easy to create web sites that can be used to share information, projects, and more! </li></ul><ul><li>Blogs have comment features that allow educators and students to communicate and give feedback on various topics that are being studied and discussed. </li></ul><ul><li>Blogs help users to develop a network of learners that can share, discuss, and grow beyond the walls of a classroom. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>The word wiki means quick! </li></ul><ul><li>A wiki is a web page or site that enables users to share and edit information. </li></ul><ul><li>A good example of a wiki is Wikipedia. </li></ul><ul><li>A wiki is a flexible tool that can be used in many ways and facilitates collaboration anytime and anywhere. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Skype is essentially Voice Over the Internet Protocol (VOIP) software. </li></ul><ul><li>The software is free and allows users to connect from computer to computer all over the world. </li></ul><ul><li>The collaboration possibilities of this software are just being tapped in education. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>RSS stands for Real Simple Syndication. </li></ul><ul><li>Simply put, an RSS reader gathers information from many websites into one place. </li></ul><ul><li>RSS enables users to organize the vast amounts of information that exist on the internet and helps to manage content that is important and applicable to particular users. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Podcasts are digital audio or video recordings that can be created, accessed, shared, and consumed using many mediums (mp3 players, computers, cell phones, etc.) </li></ul><ul><li>Podcasts allow users to hear and see content that others have produced and allows users to create media rich presentations that can be shared with a global audience. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Online tutorials creation tools allow educators to manipulate content for practice in the classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>Basic knowledge or skills are reinforced via online tutorials and many already exist and are shared via the web. </li></ul><ul><li>Examples of tutorial creation tools include: Quia.com, Hot Potatoes, WebQuests, and more. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Many young people have flocked to YouTube for entertainment purposes. </li></ul><ul><li>This resource is just being tapped into for educational purposes. </li></ul><ul><li>Essentially, YouTube allows a forum to share video clips to a global audience. </li></ul><ul><li>TeacherTube may serve as an alternative to YouTube. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>Inspiration </li></ul><ul><li>Office </li></ul><ul><li>Flash </li></ul><ul><li>laptops </li></ul><ul><li>iPods </li></ul><ul><li>Audacity </li></ul><ul><li>TuneTalk </li></ul><ul><li>AutoPlay </li></ul><ul><li>Smart Boards </li></ul><ul><li>Scratch </li></ul><ul><li>Second Life </li></ul><ul><li>Games </li></ul><ul><li>Simulations </li></ul><ul><li>AND MORE!!! </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>“ Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” Picasso </li></ul><ul><li>Young people already use many of the Web 2.0 tools that have been shared today. </li></ul><ul><li>The challenge is students don’t have direction in how to use them in a meaningful way. </li></ul><ul><li>As educators we can tap into the tools students are using to help them become empowered and to take ownership of their own learning. </li></ul><ul><li>Most of these Web 2.0 tools work in concert with each other. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>Students need the opportunity to contribute to our society in a meaningful, authentic, relevant, connected way. </li></ul><ul><li>Using Web 2.0 tools facilitates collaboration, self directed learning, and provides an opportunity to share with a global audience. </li></ul><ul><li>We must ask our students: “What do you have to say?” Then, use these tools to enable them to say it! </li></ul>
