MCurtis6231 BlogThis blog was created to assist my colleagues in theirefforts to integrate technology in their daily instructionalpractices. Teachers can track these posts through anaggregator like Google Reader to view articles as they areposted to my this site. In this manner, teachers can keeptrack of new information that is delivered in small doses.Teachers can also provide feedback to give me direction.The next page is a screen shot of my blog. 4. Curtis Project WikiThis wiki was created to provide greater depthof instruction on a variety of tools for teachersto incorporate In their lessons. Teachers areable to add resources to this site to expand ourlibrary.The following page is a screenshot of my wiki. 5. Google ReaderGoogle Reader is a feed aggregator softwarethat allows you to tag the RSS feeds fromvarious sites and display them for you to read. Displays all tagged web sites. Indicates sites that have articles not read. Information more manageable to process. Promotes staying current with sites of interest . Websites can easily be added or deleted. Websites can be organized into folders. 6. Additional Web 2.0 Sites Weebly .com - A free website that uses theWeebly domain. Teachers can easily importgraphics, videos, text, calendars, and otherwidgets to create a class website. I think thisis an extremely helpful site for facilitatingcommunication between the teacher and thestudents home. Adding a blog adds theoption for feedback as well. 7. 8. Animation Web 2.0 Sites Voki Create a text to speech Go Animate Create a 20 character. (60 sec. monolog)line animated video with dialog 9. Interactive Poster 10. ReflectionIt is hard to determine which type ofcommunication program is better than another aseach has its own distinct purpose in spite of theoverlap that exists between programs.Weebly allows me to post information much like anonline bulletin board resource.Blogger gives me access to post information to besorted by date and category.Wikispaces can be used like a website, but there ismore versatility for collaboration. 11. The value of Google Reader, Google Docs, and many of theWeb 2.0 tools is directly proportional to the way I am able tointegrate them in my instruction or in the instruction of those Icoach. It was good for me to become much more familiar withthe Terms of Use conditions for each of the sites I explored. Idid not realize the restricted use conditions of some sites.This course has helped me to use wikis and blogs much moreeffectively than I had known how to do before. I am lookingforward to finding more applications for the tools that I nowknow how to use. I am also challenged through the blogs thatI am now following to incorporate new Web 2.0 in my lessons.I cant wait to share with my studentsand colleagues.
