Top 10 Web 2.0 Tools for Young Learners : February 2009 : THE Journal - 2 views

    Technology needs to trickle up, she said, not down. We need to give the most powerful tools to the most vulnerable populations because they are the ones who need it. "Young learners, non-readers," she continued, "need high-speed access, they need animation and graphics and sound. And that's the truth." According to Lovely, and education technology consultant and speaker at the FETC 2009 conference in Orlando, FL in January, it was the recognition of those needs that led her to develop a "top 10 list" of go-to technology tools to help inspire young students and empower under-funded teachers. "The important thing to remember here," she said, "is that this isn't about simply providing you with 10 links. It's much more important to ask, 'What are you going to do with these things? How are you going to use these tools?' That's why we're here," she said. "So I can show you not only what's out there but also how other educators are using these resources to teach their students right now."

      How do these qualities relate to website evaluation? 1. interface design (relateable Characters/avatars, game world immersion)  2. content organization 3. site architecture (game world immersion), last but not least and especially,  4. interactivity. Interactivity: 1. Needs to engage all senses (multimodal: touch, color/sight, sound, smell, kinesthetic), 2. Lot's of breaks (information chunking), 3.

      source appears as the video concludes: Isn't it interesting that a senior learner wants to know the "Who" said it before hearing "What" they are saying? Anybody else think that?
