Connect-Collaborate-Create with Web 2 Tools

Connect-Collaborate-Create with Web 2 Tools | EDUcational Chatter | Scoop.it
What it is: Many of us are heading into the summer vacation months, a time when our non-education friends and family view us with envy over our “2 month break”. I don’t know about you, but I NEVER had a summer where I wasn’t working on education in some capacity. Summer is a time to prepare for the next school year, dream up new projects and explore all of those things we didn’t have time for during the school year. Web 2.0 Library is a fun one to explore this summer for some new resources for your classroom tech tool box. Find web tools that will help teachers and students connect, collaborate and create. When you choose a topic, you will be taken to a login page. Click “login as guest” to proceed. Icons accompany each tool that offer additional understanding for each tool. The i give more information about how to use the tool, the @ gives activities that can be done using the tool and the video icon includes a video that teaches more about the tool.
