Creating an Engaged Classroom with Web 2.0 Tools
A blended course for K-12 teachers and administrators (face-to-face + online)
With the advent of Web 2.0 we have transitioned from the “flat web” to the interactive environment of “the read, write web”. The question is how can we leverage this new source of knowledge into the classroom? This class will explore the concept behind this phenomenon, its relevance to society and the impact it has in K-12 teaching and learning. Central themes of this course will be Web 2.0 applications, mobile devices and the curriculum.
This is a blended course with one face-to-face class followed by 3 weeks of online coursework. The face-to-face class is May 21, 4:15-6:15pm at WGTE Educational Resource Center. The remainder of the course will be taught online and will engage participants in active discussions and purposeful learning activities that will expand knowledge of Web 2.0 tools and explore effective strategies for integrating these tools within the classroom.
