The 100 Best Web 2.0 Classroom Tools Chosen By You | Edudemic - 9 views

  • PBWORKS: PBworks is my favorite Web 2.0 tool. I am a high school teacher and I create workspaces for each of the standards that I teach. I upload class notes, powerpoints, videos, and other resources to support the standards that I teach. Students can access the workspace anytime to get information that they missed or just to review the information. Best of all—it’s FREE!

    I was really glad to see PBWorks listed. I had the pleasure of using this tool for a couple of courses that I was an online student in and it was an amazing collaboration tool! We actually used it to put together research for a topic. It does have it's quarks, which are pretty minimal, but I book marked it because I could definately see myself using this as a tool as an instructor.

VoiceThread - Conversations in the cloud - 3 views

  •  
    A tool for having conversations around media. Upload pictures and then add comments. I've seen this used for students around the world to post pictures of their homes and then comment on the differences and similarities. Great language tool because comments are written and/or spoken. Great cultural tool because of the addition of media.
  • ...4 more comments...
  •  
    VoiceThread is a great tool for asynchronous communication about a specific image, document, or presentation. While text is neat, there is something special about listening to someone's voice.
  •  
    VoiceThreads could be created featuring presentations (about a primary document related to immigration) for teacher and student use, encourageing reflection (of historic photograph(s) taken at Ellis Island) by students, and host a debate (about immigration).
  •  
    VoiceThread is a great way to add voice to an online class. Students can create and participate in discussions with voice rather than simply text.
  •  
    This, right here, is what I desperately wish my students had in place of Finalsite as a way of creating blogs for their school Mission Portfolios. I know it isn't set up the exact same way, but it would certainly accomplish nearly the same purpose.

  • Text feedback to a presenter

      Provides responses globally which can contribute to the global perspective
    • Kristin Lavorato
       
      This reminds me of some of the clicker elements that we have integrated into our schools in the recent years, but sometimes there are issues with this. By having this, we can integrate formative assessment quickly and receive immediate feedback. 
    • Kristin Lavorato
       
      Creating a poll quickly is definitely a point of appeal for teachers, and students can utilize this as well for check-ins after presentations. Not a bad idea for attention grabbers either!

      I have used this with my co-taught US History course and the students love being able to use their phones to give feedback or share opinions.
    • jennifervwi
       
      We used this tool in a meeting of educators and it worked great. One of my concerns about using this in school is that I wouldn't want to upset any students that did not have a phone or the ability to text.

    I have a sci teacher that allowed her students to use this with their cell phones/ipods during sex ed class. It was used as a means to anonymously ask questions that would usually be very embarrassing in a classroom setting. It worked great and students were able to use their personal devices as learning tools!
  •  
    Another Web 2.0 tool which allows you to create polls. There is a free version, but also some priced versions too. Looks like a very flexible format!
  •  
    A easier way to collect quantitative information anywhere and anytime.
  •  
    This would work great with i-clickers!
  •  
    Poll Everywhere is a great way to allow students to use their favorite piece of technology, their phones! I love using this site to create anticipation guides. Students' initial responses are anonymous, but the results can lead to great discussion.
  •  
    I just took a look - I am wondering if I will be able to post math problems ... would love to be able to use it to ask questions to check for understanding periodically through the class.
  •  
    Glad to see I don't have to buy a complicated clicker system in order to get real-time feedback from my class.
  •  
    This is awesome tool that I plan on experimenting with for some of my classroom workshops. I was exposed to this type polling at a recent training conference that I attended. This will defintly reduce the paperwork.
  •  
    This looks like a great tool for classroom polling. I often place a Keystone question into my power point and the class talks through the correct/incorrect answers & offers strategies on how to approach the questions in the future. This would be a fun way to get everyone involved.
  •  
    I've taught high school Spanish, grades 6-12 ESL, and Elementary Ed and I can see that this tool would be usable in all of these situations. Just tweak for the grade level and content. V ery usable with adults as well.
  •  
    Can do real time surveys and quizzes in the classroom. Know if students are understanding the material almost instantly. Like the potential for quick feedback and saving paper.Surveys and quizzes could be multiple choice or open-ended. Even usable in lower grades, probably third grade and up.
  •  
    Gather anonymous, live responses to a poll/survey via text/cell phone.

    We recently used this during our retirement luncheon as a way to advertise advice and appreciation to the retirees.  Comments were shared anonymously on the Smartboard for all to see and share!
  •  
    Poll Everywhere allows students to answer questions and share opinions using there Smartphones
  •  
    I've used this tool successfully in the large conference environment. Could be useful for a live online class if you didn't want to compromise screen real estate.
  •  
    We just had this introduced to are departments not to long ago, it's great for simple polls of what the students are thinking.
  •  
    This would be a great tool to use in the classroom if you were taking a survey, asking questions, checking for understanding, etc.  This will give immediate feedback to the teacher or presenter.

    Good idea for PPYP?

    Good for setting up a safe social networking location for students in a class. Students must be invited to join and you, as the instructor, are the only one to send out invites. Great for student blogging.

    While this isn't is a Web 2.0 tool, it looks like it might be a helpful group for beginners like me. Living in Laos, I like how international the group looks. Does anyone else have suggestions of this kind of support group for beginners?

    Free Wiki space for educators.
  •  
    I feel that wikispaces offers more options for free than other online blog/wiki applications. I am able to host more pages and users than in PBWorks. Permissions can be set independently by page. These options are important to me since I am trying to build more collaboration of students across grade levels. I could delete student pages when they leave me to go to the high school, but isn't it way cooler that their info and account lives on so they can still participate? With the easy management tools, I can easily make sure everyone's contributions are on the "up and up". ;)

    Want to encourage online collaboration? Look no further than Wikispaces. This is just one of the line wikis which allow the public or only members to collaborate together.
