I recently interviewed about 12 students who are voluntarily using Web 2.0 tools and our school's Ning social network to enhance their education. Since only a couple teachers at our online school give students Web 2.0 options for assessments and promote the social network as a tool for learning, I wanted to see if it really helped the kids who were using them. So I asked. Turns out it does. I took their words and projects and created a video.
In Their Words
Has anyone else has had similar results in their classes, online or traditional? Has anyone had the opposite results?
