Does anyone have any suggestions of really cool Web 2.0 tools or multimedia tools that can be incorporated into elementary lessons (Math, Science, Reading, Social Studies, etc.)?  How did you use these tools in your lessons?

If I had to name 1 resource that I use a lot and love, it would be Glogster.

 

 

 

 

What a great way to incorporate technology in the classroom. I like your idea about using this at the beginning of the year  to get to know students. Thanks for the tip about using the educational version.
