The “Read/Write” Web: Free Web 2.0 Tools to Enhance Teaching and Learning

EASTCONN Tech Academy, 8/23 & 8/24/11
Presented by Jane Cook, EASTCONN Staff Development/Literacy and Technology Specialist

The “read only” Web has been replaced with the “read/write” Web and with it have come some amazing Web-based technology tools. Known as Web 2.0 tools, they provide educators with free or low cost instructional resources that open up a whole new world for teaching and learning. Spend six hours exploring such tools as Animoto to create online presentations, Delicious to create online bookmarks and share them with colleagues and students, Google Docs to create online forms, Picnik to edit photos online, Wordle to design beautiful word clouds, Wall Wisher to create a bulletin board for electronic post-it notes, and more. Develop plans to integrate these technology tools into your teaching and your students’ learning. You’ll be amazed at the possibilities!
