Introduction

Welcome to Web 2.0 in Education!

This course will provide an introduction to understanding what Web 2.0 is and how to implement it into the classroom:


As you have seen in the introduction video, Web 2.0 is a two-way stream of information. No longer is the internet for the sole purpose of taking in information; today, anyone can contribute within the digital landscape. Better yet, students and teachers can collaborate in thier sharing of ideas and knowledge. To understand how Web 2.0 benefits teachers and students, please take a few minutes to review information from pages 243-245 of this article:

http://www.iojes.net/userfiles/Article/IOJES_795.pdf

- Record at least three points made by Elmas & Geban (2012) on each of the following questions. Discuss your responses within your small group.


1. What is Web 2.0?


2. What are the advantages of using web 2.0 tools for teachers?


3. What are the advantages of using web 2.0 tools for students?


4. What are the advantages of using web 2.0 tools for the classroom environment?

To understand these advantages on a deeper level, I have put together three different Web 2.0 lessons that will allow you to dig deeper into understanding how Web 2.0 benefits teachers and students alike. You will gain an understanding how to use and incorporate actual Web 2.0 tools into your classroom. These tools will take your classroom to the next level. You will find students engaged, collaborating on digital projects, as well as learning 21st century skills! You might even find yourself "getting connected" outside of class with Edmodo!
