Web 2.0 Tools Galore!

Picture 2Newtoolsworkshop: This is not a science specific resource- however, I felt compelled to share this amazing site. If you are interested in integrating more technology into your science classroom in the form of online videos, blogs, wikis, social networks, etc.. then I highly recommend you check out this well-organized, visually pleasing, and thorough collection of online tools.

Applications for Science Teachers: Learn how to use a wiki with your students, learn how to use web 2.0 tools to help students collaborate on a science project, find out how to use blogs to assess what your students are thinking, find science images to create presentations and formative assessment probes, create an interactive calendar for science homework and assignments, increase student engagement by using the tools that students understand and enjoy. Click on a category (such as Wikis) and you will go to a page loaded with video clips explaining what a wiki is, possible applications for teachers, and several free sites for creating wikis. Wow!!!
