Web 2.0 tools are an amazing asset for any classroom. In this technological age, it is important that teachers use all resources available to them to reach and engage their students. Web 2.0 tools are a great way to accomplish this.
In this webinar we are going to talk about what Web 2.0 tools actually are when used in an educational setting. Web 2.0 tools are tools of technology that allow teachers and students alike to create, collaborate, edit and share content on-line that is user-generated.
These can include tools for: presentation, research, collaboration, audio, video, slideshow, images, music, drawing, writing, organizing, mapping, quiz and test generation, file storage and web pages, and also tools for graphing and conversion. New tools are being developed all the time, so it is important to be informed about the newest trends in education in order to keep up with the technology that surrounds the lives of your students.
This webinar has been created for teachers and educators who want to learn more about web 2.0 tools in education and support their teaching goals, increasing the learning capabilities of your students. Web 2.0 tools are becoming more prevalent in the classroom, but can seem daunting for teachers who are not confident in their technological ability.
There's some good news though - these tools are generally designed to be extremely user-friendly!
