Welcome to the World of Web 2.0...

The Computer as a Door: Using Web 2.0 Tools to Communicate, Collaborate, Compose, Create, and Contribute from Kathy Schrock on Vimeo.





 This is a great list of Web 2.0 tools for just about anything. There are a few links that didn't work, but all in all this is a one-stop shop! Image, Audio and Video tools




Great tool to organize your websites for a class, theme or workshop. http://www.jogtheweb.com/play/dOjH8c6ychjM/web-20-magical-myster-tour


WEb 2.0 Tools for kids---- http://www.jogtheweb.com/run/z1O1GPxm4bCR/Web-2.0-Tools-for-Kids


is a free digital whiteboard that users can share online in real-time. Sorta like pen and paper, minus the dead trees, plastic, and the inconvenience of being at the same place at the same time.


On the homepage you'll be immediately directed to a Scriblink board, which is free and requires no registration. Here you can take advantage of all kinds of useful features, such as:

  • Privacy: the board is all yours, open only to the people you choose to invite
  • Dynamic Tools: use shapes, hundreds of colors, a size bar, a text feature, and a grid to help guide your drawings
  • File Options: gives you the ability to print, save, and email your work
  • Image Uploader: upload an image onto the whiteboard as the background, allowing you to share it, mark it, deface it, or highlight key elements
  • In-Screen Chat: when working with others, no need to sign in to third party software, simply use our in-screen chat
  • VOIP Conferencing: if you have a mic for your computer, you can automatically connect with your collaborators (no software necessary) and talk for free for as long as you like
  • File transfer: when emailing is too much of a hassle, simply transfer files directly to anyone you're working with

EtherPad is the only web-based word processor that allows people to work together in really real-time.

When multiple people edit the same document simultaneously, any changes are instantly reflected on everyone's screen. The result is a new and productive way to collaborate on text documents, useful for meeting notes, drafting sessions, education, team programming, and more.

Scratch is a new programming language that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art -- and share your creations on the web.

 The Glogster below will introduce you to the resources or you can visit the website: http://webtools4u2use.wikispaces.com/Webtools4U2Use.

Edmodo is a private microblogging platform that teachers and students can use to send notes, links, files, alerts, assignments, and events to each other. Teachers sign up for accounts, and then create classes/groups. Each class/group has a unique code which is distributed by the teacher to the class. Students then sign up (no email address required) and join the group using the code. Here's a quick video tour of Edmodo...
