I really want to share with you 6 of my favorite Web 2.0 tools. These tools really change the face of education because they allow teachers to collaborate with students like never before. Additionally, these tools allow and foster collaboration among classmates. These tools increase the opportunities students have to truly participate, respond, and become deeply engaged in the lesson or topic. These tools are alike in many ways, but the main similarity is that they are all tools that allow for collaboration with the teacher and class. You can use each of these tools to do a quick assessment, get instant feedback, entrance/exit slips, and allow students to participate in their own way. If there is one tool you haven’t used…try one out and see how they can enhance your teaching and your students’ learning!
