Creating and Communicating Online

Isn’t this what web 2.0 is all about?

Mindmapping has been in the teacher toolkit for quite some time and is a very handy tool. Online mindmapping just makes sense. I have seen used successfully by an ICT savvy teacher with students in Year 1. Another application that would be familiar to Inspiration users is Webspiration.

Podcasts and Vodcasts

Like many teachers I have used Powerpoint, Photostory and Moviemaker as tools for teaching and for presentation of student learning. This is the next step in our increasingly digital age.

iTunes and YouTube are fantastic tools not only in the classroom but for many other areas in life. My husband has used YouTube for do-it-yourself fixing a boat engine!

So much time can be spent on your gadgets that could easily occupy hours of your time. I must admit that I am a minimalist and have few nicknacks collecting dust on the shelves at home. I guess that I am the same on google. Just the bare minimum of clutter for me- mail, news and currency converter for that overseas trip!


Web 2.0- The Course!

Filed under: 1 — lisesercombe @ 1:17 pm

I am now working my way through the web 2.0 modules in earnest so now I must recommence blogging. I have been surfing the net just as much over the past year but have just been a viewer rather than a contributor. So… if you visit my blog from now on you will see what I have to say. I hope you find it worth the trouble.
