ISTE | Web 2.0 - 0 views

    The journey unfolds when teachers decide to move away from traditional teaching and toward a new vision of instructional design. It's a learning journey-for teacher and student alike. The journey focuses on learning, not the technology. Taking the journey is critical in preparing students to live, learn, and work in a technology-rich world.

    On the journey you'll discover a world of resources to transform learning through the effective and appropriate use of technology. In addition to giving you resources, we're also going to give you the opportunity to share your thoughts, ideas, inspirational stories, and favorite resources with your colleagues through blogs, wikis and the ISTE Web site.

    "I really believe that true PD happens in small chunks. That's what social networks like Twitter and Plurk and Ning provide - small bits of real feedback, right there at the exact right time. Teachers have always talked and shared their ideas in the hallways of their school between classes. Well, now those hallways have gone online," says Lori Reed, a 20-year veteran third-grade teacher from Kress Independent School District in Kress, Texas. Social networking, she adds, connects her to people and resources that help her do her job better.

Digital Education - 0 views

    This blog post on Ewan McIntosh's points out a new peer-reviewed study that links Web 2.0 to academic improvement. The report found that Web 2.0 tools encourage participation and engagement, especially for those students who are timid; help students continue classroom discussions outside of the classroom; let students who are so inclined continue researching anytime, anywhere; and instill a sense of ownership and pride in students for the work they publish online, which can lead to more attention to detail and a better quality of work.

    The report also found that one of the biggest obstacles to using Web 2.0 tools in the classroom was the time it takes teachers to incorporate those new tools into lesson plans. Although many teachers were familiar with the tools and used them in their personal lives, they were apprehensive about how to monitor Internet use in the classroom and the time needed to figure out how those tools should be used to teach.
