Harnessing the Power of Web 2.0: Technologies to Connect and Engage Our 21st Century Learners

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What is all the buzz about YouTube, Flickr, Diigo, Facebook, MySpace, Blogger, Twitter, Skype, Second Life and the many Web 2.0 technologies that are key components of students' daily vocabulary? Which technologies are really supporting and enhancing our students? How can teachers effectively use the "read/write web" to motivate students and connect them to the world?  Do we really understand Web 2.0 and the effect it has on our students? Our students are authors of blogs, designers of web sites and developers of ringtones. They have created an entire language of their own using abbreviated terms. The bottom line is that these students learn and comprehend in a way that is foreign to many of us, and, as a result, they often feel disconnected from traditional teachers and schools of yesteryear. In this workshop, we will explore several Web 2.0 tools, how students are using them and how to successfully integrate them into the curriculum.
