Below are notes from Gail Lovely’s session at the Innovative learning Conference titled Web 2.0 Meets Grade 2.0: Harness the Power of Web 2.0 in Elementary Teaching and Learning.
She began by asking us for a two-word definition of Web 2.0 and entering our ideas in the online Inspiration called Webspiration which is currently free. Web 2.0 allows us to create and contribute content.
Her session wiki is <Glovely.wetpaint.com>. Part of web 2.0 is allowing your audience to contribute. She then showed us the Common Craft video, “Wikis in Plain English.” She shared several teacher wikis that are used in classrooms to demonstrate student work and illustrate the content standards. She opened several teacher blogs that included student work, commenting how wikis help make work more authentic.
One blog used yackpack, a free web 2.0 tool that allows your audience to talk to you.
