The “read only” Web has been replaced with the “read/write” Web and with it have come some amazing Web-based technology tools. Known as Web 2.0 tools, they provide educators with free or low cost instructional resources that open up a whole new world for teaching and learning. Spend the day exploring such tools as Animoto to create online presentations, Delicious to create online bookmarks and share them with colleagues and students, Google Docs to create online forms and collaborative documents, Picnik to edit photos online, Wordle to design beautiful word clouds, Wall Wisher to create a bulletin board for electronic post-it notes, and more. You’ll be introduced to MY Access, an online writing tool. Though not free, this powerful tool can be used to teach writing and encourage revision and turn struggling students into fluent writers. You’ll be amazed at the possibilities!
