  •  
    "First of all, blogging is writing, 21st-century style, plain and simple. Blogging constitutes a massive genre.  It comes in many forms, addresses myriad topics, and can certainly range in quality. For my money (which usually means free), blogging provides the best venue for teaching student writing. As bloggers, young people develop crucial skills with language, tone their critical thinking muscles, and come to understand their relationship to the world" (¶1, 2014.03.11).

Top 10 Online Tools for Teaching Science and Math - 17 views

  •  
    Why use Web 2.0 tools in science and math classes? The primary reason is they facilitate access to input and interaction with content through reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

    These tools offer enormous advantages for science and math teachers, in terms of helping their students learn using Web 2.0 tools. For example:

    * Most of these tools can be edited from any computer connected to the Internet. Teachers can add, edit and delete information even during class time.

    * Students learn how to use these tools for academic purposes and, at the same time, can transfer their use to their personal lives and future professional careers.

    * RSS feeds allow students to access all the desired research information on one page.

    * Students learn to be autonomous in their learning process.
