Web 2.0 for the Classroom – Wiki

Web 2.0 for the Classroom WikiI’ve just come across this website from my Google Alerts, and what a great find! http://web20fortheclassroom.wikispaces.com/

This is an online learning course, presented in a wiki, and developed by Sherri Miller, an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher for Gloucester County Public Schools.

There are 9 modules which you can work your way through at your own pace, investigating  some sites in depth, and exploring others as needed. It’s also a site you can recommend to teachers at your school if they are looking for ideas for integrating technology into their lessons.  The list of topics is below, but the Site Map gives the complete overview of all the pages.

What I particularly like about this wiki is that firstly Sherri gives examples of how the different web 2.0 tools can be used to enhance learning in the classroom, and secondly she lists her favourite tools/applications, giving you the option to try first the ones she has used and recommended.
