  1. Web 2.0 for Research and Information Management Kim Peacock, B.Ed., M.Ed. University of Alberta

  2. A Quick Poll… • Are you willing to shift your thinking about some technology tools in your classrooms? • http://www.polleverywhere.com/multiple_choice_polls/LTExOTk0NTIxNzA

  3. My Personal Philosophy of PD… Vs. Inspiration Perspiration

  4. Part 1 – What Is Web 2.0?

  5. Web 2.0 Is Here… • You are probably already using Web 2.0 tools in your day-to-day online life: • Facebook • Blogs • Wikipedia • Flickr/Picassa/etc…

  6. What Are Web Applications? • Allow you to perform tasks or create objects without software. • Often known as “Web 2.0” applications. • Often have an element of social interaction. • Accessible from anywhere. • Usually FREE!

  7. The Web 2.0 Lexicon • RSS feeds • Tags • Folksonomy • Mash-Ups • Widgets • AJAX

  8. Risks • Applications go up and down. • Applications get bought out. • Web applications sometimes allow students to interact with other people online. Most tools have privacy settings to keep minors safe. • Students’ privacy should be considered. Some tools can be completely private, but others not.

  9. Risks • Applications may create thing that can’t leave the confines of the particular web site (e.g./ can’t be downloaded to a disc/dvd/etc…) • Students with computers at home may get to spend more time on projects than students without since it’s easily accessible.

  10. A Note On Blocking • Some Web 2.0 sites may be blocked at your school… you can sometimes get around this. • Submit a request to your technology department. • Provide a pedagogical justification for the site to be unblocked at your school during a certain period of time. • Describe how you will keep students safe.
