I know I have not posted in this section of my blog for a couple of weeks now but sometimes I get overwhelmed with the amount of work I have to do and things get piled up on me but I definitely end up doing all. In Educational Web Tools section, I compile and review lists of web tools I gather from different sources online and provide them handy for teachers and educators particularly those who, because of their time constraints or any other reason, do not have the time to spend online looking for web tools to try with their students or to use for their professional development.
The priority is always given to those new web tools that have recently been created but I so often include other tools as well.

10 Free Web 2.0 Tools And How To Easily Use Them In Your Classroom. Earlier this week I had the opportunity to attend the first Ozarks Education Research Initiative (OERI) Teacher Technology Conference at Willard High School (MO). The learning sessions I attended were all very good and I am going to share 10 of the FREE tools I learned about below. I will be incorporating them into how I teach and hopefully by using these tools during faculty meetings, PD sessions, and other opportunities as they arise, this will help us all to find ways to incorporate them into the classroom to engage our students even more.
This quote from last week has stuck with me ever since it was spoken – “Date the tool. Marry the idea.” I don’t recall who this is attributed to, but it resonates with me still. Engagement is key!

How One Classroom Actually Used iPads To Go Paperless (Part 1: Research) Last year, with a fearless group of 10th graders in Katrina Kennett’s English class at Plymouth South High School , we attempted to transform the traditional research process to a completely paperless one using a fresh new cart of iPads. As I have written previously about iPads in the classroom, our decision to use iPads did not start with iPads, it started with learning goals and objectives. We later determined that iPads would fit into the equation. The 4 Goals A few of the goals that we outlined prior to the research process included: - Students will crowd-source their research to a collective research group. - Students will incorporate varied media types into their research: web based text, traditional text, audio and video. - Students will work collaboratively with their teacher and classmates on their research and writing process. - Students will become proficient researching and writing in a digital environment.
