Tool 5: Web 2.0 Tools

Web 2.0 Tools can be an effective tool in the classroom if used properly. There is no doubt that using these two functionalities can create a dynamic lesson environment for students in order to enhance their learning. However, the time in setting up these sorts of tools can be a bit prohibitive. For instance, it took me the better part of an hour to do the following two things:

Xtranormal movie:

Prezi:

Those were just small fractions of whole lessons. I think if you can create the content and have plenty of time on your hands, then it would work well, but having a library of content is a very time-intensive thing. However, as more integration of these technologies occur, it will be easier to transfer lessons over, so these tools are definitely the wave of the future.

Good luck in the classroom!
