Web 2.0 Mind Map

Click on the following "Web 2.0 Mind Map" to see O'Reilly's definition of Web 2.0. As an educator, I sometimes fail to see the real-life, business ($$$) connection when learning how to integrate emerging technologies into our school. I hope this will help us all better define Web 2.0. Without a common definition and an understanding of how Web 2.0 tools will be used in the business world, we will not make all the progress possible using these "CyberTools".

Blogs, wikis, podcasts, social networking and bookmarking, Flickr, mashups, Google Maps and Apps, and Scribd's online documents. If you want to view more Web 2.0 tools than even Geeks could imagine, check out the Web 2.0 mutimedia offered on the following site.

Suggested Entry Level Teaching of Various Web 2.0 Tools

Posted on July 11, 2007 at 8:49am 3 Comments

Now that there are too many web 2.0 tools to teach in any one year or school, when should we introduce them to our students. Are there web 2.0 tools that will benefit our youngest students? Which web 2.0 tools are better left for later grades? When should students begin having their own blog space, google account, join or create a social network, use course management software, and/or create and document their learning in a personal digital portfolio?

Sharing Web 2.0 Classroom Successes

Posted on June 29, 2007 at 10:18pm 2 Comments

How are some of you using Web 2.0 tools to enhance/enrich your instruction? I thought that we would all share some success stories then we will sort them into categories and use these same stories to encourage others to take the risk in their classrooms to benefit their students.

In many situations, teachers do not have the support of administration nor the technology hardware to use Web 2.0 tools effectively. Schools need technology integrators to assist teacher and students. Let's… Continue

Hi Shawn. I was wondering if your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some other educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at Please let me know. Thanks!

Thanks, Shawn. I, too, would like a closer look at your mind map but found no link. Focusing our efforts for effective classroom use will ensure more "buy in" from our teachers.

And thanks for the 38 Special song. Been some time since I listened to 38 Special.

I tried clicking on the map above but there didn't seem to be any link. I was quite interested. Can you leave me a link?

Beyond sharing and learning about web 2.0 tools together, I suspect that some people out there are looking to connect with another classroom so the students can benefit from a web-based learning relationship. As a technology integrator, I assist K-8 teachers and students and have a few teachers that I think would like to do some long-distance collaborative learning. Please let me know if you are interested. Maybe we can even set up an area where teachers/others can post their desire to reach out to other students.

What do you think?

Hello! I am a 3rd grade teacher from Illinois and I'm trying to connect with other teachers and academic technology folks.
