Web 2.0 Tools

There will be a lot of sites covered today. For that purpose, I want to remind you to take baby steps. Today we are window shopping. Something we rarely get time to do.

Wikis
Wiki means quick in Hawaiin; thus the definition of a wiki--a quick web site. Wiki's are a great way to:
*Organize a Unit
*"Contain" Project Products
*Build a quick classroom web page
*collaborate

Let's take a look at the basics...



Examples:
Classroom sites:

Collaboration:

Informational:

We're now going to use a wiki to learn some of the skills that will be needed with the other web 2.0 tools today.
Please check your e-mail to join the wiki created for this session. Each of you will make up your own user names and passwords when prompted.
