Welcome to Granville County Schools Professional Development Day

Introductions



Overview


In today's session you will learn to leverage Web 2.0 tools to take your teaching to a new level. Most of these tools are easily incorporated when students have their own computer; however, we will discuss and brainstorm how you can take advantage of these tools even if you only have one computer in your classroom. One of the easiest ways that we can incorporate Web 2.0 Tools is by leveraging a wiki as a platform for our curriculum as well as a repository for student or teacher created work/activities.

Depending on your needs, we will be exploring some of the following tools:
  1. wikispaces as a platform,
  2. Audacity,
  3. Screencast-O-Matic,
  4. ToonDoo,
  5. VoiceThread,
  6. Wordle, and
  7. Animoto.

At the end of the session, the goal is for each participant to have developed a wikispace with incorporated Web 2.0 products while having leveraged these within some realm of their curriculum.
