From blogs to wikis, invite Web 2.0 tools into the classroom. In this invaluable resource, you'll find a host of Web 2.0 tools available on the Internet today, plus teaching and learning strategies to use them in the K-12 classroom. Language arts, science, and social studies unit lesson plans included in each chapter exemplify topics at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. Each chapter focuses on a specific Web 2.0 tool: Blogs - high school science study; Podcasts - immigrant topic for the elementary classroom; Wikis - learning about novels in high school; Video/digital storytelling about energy; Google tools (e.g., Google Earth, Maps, and Docs) - current events in social studies; Voice Thread - language learning for non-native speakers; and, Social bookmarking - Earth Day projects. Each chapter of this title incorporates a glossary; a description of the particular tool; examples of its use in the K-12 curriculum; how to get started; and, a unit plan focused on learning strategies. Exercises in each chapter reinforce the concepts. Readers get a complete listing of all Web sites mentioned plus access to a Web site for exercises, new URLs, and more. Teachers will want to check this out of your library too.
