What Makes a Web 2.0 Application?
Web 2.0 What Is It Really?
  • Web 2.0 is about connections
  • The Web 2.0 revolution puts people first
  • Web 2.0 is about allowing people to manipulate
    data, not just retrieve data
  • Web 2.0 is about doing stuff on the Web that
    can't done in any other medium
  • Students as content creators

American teenagers today are utilizing the
interactive capabilities of the Internet as they
create and share their own media creations.
Fully half of all teens and 57 of teens who use
the Internet could be considered Content Creators
Millions of amateur reporters now have their own
digital printing press. They are editors who

Education and Technology by Steve
Dembo MusingsTop 10 FREE Web 2.0 Sites for
Educators (and a few honorable mentions)
  • 1) Del.icio.us - This social bookmarking engine
    was by far the overall winner. It got the most
    votes by a landslide. I do understand why though.
    Not only does it serve a very basic function
    (online bookmarking), but it connects people to
    troves of websites that are tagged, described and
    organized by freshness. While there are ample
    features built into the site, and more being
    added regularly, the open API has allowed for the
    creation of numerous community built hacks and
    extensions. An RSS feed on every page is just the
    icing on the cake.

  • 2) Bloglines - This is my aggregator of choice
    still, despite trying many others. While Google
    Reader may be newer and shinier, its still
    missing one feature that I deem to be important
    in the world of Web 2.0, and thats the ability
    to connect people together. With Bloglines, you
    can see who else has subscribed to a blog you are
    a fan of, and follow the trail along to see what
    they read as well. I find it invaluable to be
    able to see what people like Will Richardson and
    Bernie Dodge are reading, which really sets
    Bloglines apart.

  • 3) Flickr - Flickr is clearly the premiere social
    photo sharing site of the Web 2.0 world. It is
    packed with 2.0 features like RSS throughout,
    contacts, comments, groups, geotagging, and of
    course an Open API. There are few sites with more
    hacks and extensions available to them. My
    personal favorites are Spell with Flickr, Memry,
    and the entire Flickr Toys collection.
    Additionally, the ability to do search for
    Creative Commons images that students actually
    have the rights to use in their presentations and
    digital stories is invaluable.

  • 4) Picnik - There are a plethora of image editing
    sites in the world of Web 2.0, but Picnik stands
    out for a few reasons. For one thing, its
    pretty. The site is well laid out, easy to
    navigate, and incredibly intuitive. You can use
    the website without even registering, making it
    incredibly education-friendly. It may not have
    every feature that Photoshop has, but it does
    allow you to crop, resize, eliminate red-eye,
    adjust color and brightness levels, and save in a
    variety of formats. Throw in the ability to
    import directly from Flickr, and export to a
    variety of services including Flickr, Photobucket
    and Kodak Easyshare, and you have an app that
    integrates well into the rest of the 2.0 world.

  • 5) Jumpcut - With free video editing solutions
    like iMovie and Movie Maker readily available,
    you might wonder why Im including an online
    video editing service in this list. I can answer
    that with one question. When was the last time
    you told your students, Finish editing your
    video at home so we can show them in class
    tomorrow? Jumpcut allows students to work on
    their digital stories from any computer in any
    browser. It is surprisingly robust, with features
    you might not expect in an online video editor,
    like titles, effects, and the ability to overlay
    audio files. While I wouldnt recommend you have
    students explore Jumpcut for video content to
    include in their stories (there are clearly
    mature videos that are not marked as such yet),
    it can certainly be a powerful tool to use in a
    classroom setting. Just stick to the editor.

  • 7) Google Docs and Spreadsheets - Im sure that
    there are 100s of features missing from Googles
    version of Word and Excel, but I cant seem to
    figure out what they are. Docs and Spreadsheets
    also has one clear advantage over the desktop
    version its collaborative. While editing a
    document, you can invite other people to work on
    it with you. Windows or Mac, Firefox or Explorer,
    Docs and Spreadsheets has everything youd expect
    in a word processor and spreadsheet program.
    Throw in the ability to import and export in a
    variety of formats, including Office, OpenOffice,
    and PDF, and you have a full featured replacement
    for zero cost.

  • 8. Vyew - This is a pretty specialized
    application that really has more application for
    tech coordinators and trainers than it does for
    teachers in general. This is essentially a free
    webinar solution, similar to WebEx and
    Elluminate. It does have features that youd
    normally pay tens of thousands for, such as the
    ability to share PowerPoints, whiteboarding and
    the holy grail of webinars, desktop sharing. It
    also provides you with a phone number that you
    can use to host an audio conference with up to
    100 people. Personally, I like doing the audio by
    the phone lines because it conserves bandwidth.
    Your presentation room can hang around, even when
    you arent there, so people who couldnt attend
    can still pop in to see the slides, notes and
    chat. Perfect for distance learning and live
    demonstrations at a moments notice. Vyew is quite
    possibly the best value on the list (compared to
    the cost of similar solutions).

  • 9) GCast - With Audioblogger gone, GCast is
    recognized as the most popular platform for
    MobCasts (podcasts created via cell phone).
    However, it is also a powerful solution for
    podcasters who dont quite understand how the RSS
    piece works. Anybody can upload audio files to
    GCast, organize them into a single or multiple
    podcast feeds, and then generate a flash player
    that is incredibly easy to embed into a blog or
    web site. The flash player includes subscription
    links, allowing listeners to subscribe via iTunes
    or email. While the site doesnt look or feel
    like a typical Web 2.0 site (no Ajax, no drag and
    drop, no bubbly letters), it is such a simple and
    elegant solution to the most challenging part of
    the podcasting process, and rightfully deserves a
    slot in the list.

  • 10) pbWiki WikiSpaces - It quickly became
    clear that wikis would have to be included in
    this list, but the votes were evenly split
    between these two websites. After reviewing both,
    I decided that they both deserved roster spots on
    this list. pbWiki is a little shinier, with its
    new point and click editor and template thats
    easy on the eyes. You can also save your wikis as
    a PDF or create a slide show from it, unusual
    amongst wiki engines. Wikispaces is firmly
    committed to education and is in the process of
    giving away 100,000 ad-free wikis to educators.
    It has a simple WYSIWYG editor that does support
    embedable media (like from YouTube or Google
    Video). Wikispaces looks more like a typical wiki
    engine, and has a discussion tab like youd find
    on Wikipedia.

  • One challenge that faces me each year is how to
    achieve cohesion between in-class activities,
    homework assignments, class discussions, creative
    projects, and essays. I have discovered the glory
    of wikispaces.In my American Literature
    classes, my students each formed a personal
    philosophy statement that will form the focus for
    the semester. Their philosophy statements
    explore the root of evil, the impetus for
    rebellion and/or obedience, the destructive force
    of fear, the significance of vulnerability, and
    other concepts that emerge from early American

Students Create IVC Content
  • Audience .
  • Can be shared with wider audiences in school and
  • Can use their own content after the assignment or
    course is completed
  • Students in other classes in the same school
  • Students in other classes in other schools (,
    states, countries)
  • Teachers in the above settings
  • Employers (current, prospective, past)
  • Colleagues in professional communities or
    communities of practice
  • Society and the larger world
  • Expanding the audience for student-generated
    content inevitably implies an increased value for
    that content, which suggests the next important

To Blog or not to Blog. That is the Question!
WebLogs In EducationWill RichardsonBlogs,
Wikis, Podcasts, and Other Powerful Web Tools for
Classroom Blogging A Teacher's Guide to the
Blogosphere (Paperback)
by David Warlick
What is a blog?
  • The term blog is a shortened computer-lingo
    word for web log.
  • Online discussion thread
  • Database of writing and links
  • Organized by date
  • Sorted by topic/category
  • Updated regularly current ?
  • Allows users to read the comments of others and
    to respond with their own comments.

Blogs can
  • Promote critical thinking
  • Promote analytical thinking
  • Promote creative thinking
  • Allow students to reflect on and have
    conversations usually updated daily or weekly
  • Enhance and deepen learning
  • Teach students to read critically
  • Teach students to build relationships with their
    peers, teachers and professionals
  • Teach students how to collaborate with others
  • Allow students to build a community around
  • Enhance the depth of our curriculum

My First Blog Experience
  • I created a blog and in the first 24 hours this
    was posted
  • Hey Howie-hows it goin..Im Kristy and I just
    moved to Durango.I would like to meet a nice guy
    like you. I came here 2 weeks ago and I have
    nothin to doI read your profile and youre cute
    and I liked what you had to sayI am 21-f-/single
    and I like a guy who is easy to be comfortable
    around. I really like guys who are a little bit
    older than me and 64 is just about right. I have
    posted my profile and have lots of photos of
    me.come check it out ..OK

Possible drawback (and solution)
  • Students may be rude or otherwise post
    inappropriate comments
  • Solution The teacher must monitor the blog

Why would I use a blog in my classroom?
  • Encourages students to engage in discussions.
  • Gives all students an equal opportunity to
  • Increases opportunities for reading and writing
  • Students see their work published
  • Students are able to share their ideas and
    opinions with other and contribute their own
    ideas to the discussion.

Ideas for using blogs
  • Topic discussions
  • Share information
  • Online Portfolios
  • Student Journaling
  • Personal Portfolios
  • Collaborative Knowledge Base
  • Research Coordination and
  • Collaboration  Curricular Cross-Disciplinary

    priceless is a mix of intense curiosity,
    refreshing enthusiasm, and photos that speak of a
    wry and observant personality.
  • Around the Corner v2 Miguel Guhlin's blog
    features the quote "Courage can't see around

    education, the borderline-irrelevant topics often
    prove enlightening. The only danger is in not
    paying attention to them.

Will you be the 10th person?
  • For every nine people who denounce innovation,
    only one will encourage it. For every nine people
    who do things the way they have always been done,
    only one will ever wonder if there is a better
    way. For every nine people who stand in line in
    front of a locked building, only one will ever
    come around and check the back door. Our progress
    as a species rests squarely on the shoulders of
    that tenth person. The nine are satisfied with
    things they are told are valuable. Person 10
    determines for himself what has value.
