Being an absolute beginner at web 2.0, I started in June, 2007. So, I am going to reflect on the 10 web 2.0 sites that I have enjoyed using most this year. I am following the lead of my friend Chrissy, Teaching Sagitarrian who helped start me on this amazing journey. NZ Chrissy decided to blog about her favourite 5 web 2.0 in the classroom for 2007 so I will share mine with those who might be relatively new to all this.
Mine are as follows but not necessarily in order of preference:-
- http://del.icio.us.com this is where I started, easy and great social bookmarking
- www.bubbl.us used widely for brainstorming with my classes
- blogs at www.wordpress.com with a lot of help and encouragement from Heather Blakey and Jess of technolote
- www.wikispaces.com used for classroom use and also for summarizing my ejourneys with the students.
- docs.google.com for online sharing of documents and spreadsheets with classes in other countries.
- www.skype.com - videoconferencing with powerful learning applications, used with NZ and Korea
- www.voki.com for fun, user protected podcast type applications - great for short comments and intros
- www.podomatic.com for hosting our student podcasts
- www.teachertube.com for hosting our videos
- www.surveymonkey.com for easily created online surveys (what were yours?)
