What the Research States

“Districts that choose to integrate these 21st century learning tools found that 39% saw engagement increase among students, with 48% saying students were actually more motivated to learn” (School Library Journal).

How Do I Get Started?

Contact me via email at jourdain_jennifer@montytech.net or call me at x5125.  I can meet you during your prep period or after school to go over the program, brainstorm how the program can meet your curriculum needs, then set up time to train your students in the lab.  Usually, there is a research component as well and I will also assist your students in finding quality information.

What Is Web 2.0?

Web 2.0 is a new way of looking at the Internet. 

Instead of passive viewers of content, users can create, interact, and collaborate online.  These are some web 2.0 tools regularly used in education:

·  Glogster - for interactive posters

·  Prezi - a zooming presentation tool

·  Animoto and other online video makers

·  Wikis such as Wikispaces

·  Blogs such as Blogster

·  Website makers such as Google Sites or Weebly

·  Comic book generators

·  Animation tools such as XtraNormal

·  VoiceThread – a visual forum

·  Popplet and other mind-mapping software programs
