The 100 Best Web 2.0 Classroom Tools Chosen By You The Wordle of this list! (Click image to enlarge) One of the most popular posts on Edudemic in 2010 was The 35 Best Web 2.0 Classroom Tools Chosen By You and I felt it might be time for an update to that list for 2011. There were more than 900 submissions but many were duplicates. Technology Tools for Teaching & Learning Used wisely, technology empowers students to take responsibility for their own learning. In Leonardo’s Laptop, Ben Shneiderman provides teachers with a powerful framework, Collect-Relate-Create-Donate (CRCD), for designing student-centered learning opportunities using computers. In particular, Shneiderman’s CRCD framework emphasizes the importance of the social aspects of learning in generating creative work. In CRCD projects, students research information, work collaboratively to create a meaningful product that demonstrates their learning, and contribute that project to a larger learning community. Shneiderman designed the Collect-Relate-Create-Donate framework as a vehicle for preparing young people for a 21st century world where innovation, creativity, and collaboration will be more highly prized than retention and repetition.

Most Essential Tools for Presenters and Conference Organizers Conferences have come a long way in the last few years. As a presenter or as an organizer, here are some useful tools and tips to help you get the most out of your sessions. Conferences have come a long way in the last few years. People just don’t attend a presentation, take down notes, ask a few questions and leave but they expect something more. Once the details of your session has been finalized, set up a Google Moderator page to get an idea of what people expect to gain from your presentation. It will help if you can create a public Facebook event for your session. If you are speaking at a big conference, the organizers may have already set up live streaming for your session but if that’s not the case, go live yourself with the help of services like UStream or LiveStream. Here’s one time-saving tip from Seth Godin that you should try in your next presentation. If you would like to make your presentation more interactive, you can consider adding live polls to your slides.

Overview - Welcome to Flubaroo The grades created by Flubaroo will be located in an adjacent worksheet called "Grades", as shown: For each submission, Flubaroo will show which questions were answered correctly ("1" point"), which incorrectly ("0" points), and which were not graded. If less than 60% of students got a question correct, the question will be highlighted in orange to alert you. Additionally, students who scored less than 70% on the assignment will be highlighted in red. The Flubaroo menu will now offer you the ability to email each student their grades, view a summary report, or regrade the assignment. If you choose to email each student their grade, you'll be given the option to include an answer key in the email. Choosing "View Report" shows you a summary report of the grading.

Technology: Teacher Enhancement, NOT Replacement - Coach G's Teaching Tips Web 2.0 applications. Mobile learning. Digital portfolios. Flipped classrooms. Just a few of many topics I learned more about at the recent International Society for Technology in Education Conference (ISTE), and plan to tweet/blog about in the coming weeks. Developmental molecular biologist John Medina spoke to this in his opening keynote address when he cited theory of mind --which relates to qualities such as empathy and the ability to peer inside someone else's mind--as a predictor of teaching competence. This isn't to say that either of these esteemed educators or any others who spoke at ISTE thinks we should cut back on technology in schools. I offer this as encouragement for those who feel daunted or threatened by technology. But also keep in mind that you'll need the same qualities to be effective in a technology-rich classroom that you've needed to be effective in a traditional classroom.

Where digital natives roam, paper and pencil have a place, too Back in September, when Nancy Amling first opened the doors to her new technology-themed high school in Chelsea, parents asked her what supplies they should buy. “I told them, ‘You don’t need supplies! We have laptops,’” Amling said. Over the next few weeks, she and her staff learned that paper and pens have their place. Located in the basement of the Bayard Rustin Education Complex, the Hudson High School of Learning Technologies is part of the city’s massive investment in technology and online learning, known as the iZone pilot. Hudson High School is a “blended” school, which means its teachers combine face-to-face instruction with online courses and homework assignments. When I visited last week, students in a math class were progressing through a series of online word problems and drawing out graphs of the problems by hand. Amling said one of the most surprising discoveries was finding how widely students’ Internet-savviness ranged. “There is that expression: digital natives.
