The class is designed to teach students about web applications, digital citizenship, personal network building, and social media responsibility and practice. This blog will be used to share with our readers the tools, websites, and web resources that students are learning about. We hope that you find a tool that you can utilize.

There are so many web applications available on the Internet that students may not even know exist. In this course, students will explore the Internet and take advantage of all that it has to offer.

Students will learn and practice digital literacy and responsibility, collaborate, share, create, socialize, and organize content, while demonstrating internet safety. Upon leaving this course students will be informed digital learner/citizen!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE looking for new tools to share with my students! I explore the web daily in search of new tools. I also gain knowledge from other Social Media blogs/websites who have found resourceful tools. Thank you to all of those experts who share their love for technology with the rest of us!

I also enjoy looking at the students creativity - through their blogs! My students love exploring Social Media! And will walk away with a collection of tools (their own Personal Learning Network) that will enhance their Internet experience both personally, educationally, and professionally.

Final - Prezi

Using Prezi - Tutorial - Getting Started - Basic Steps

Today you will be utilizing Prezi to create a presentation. It is a very cool web app that allows you to create presentations with a cool twist. Literally. You create a single "page" with multiple pieces of info that you can guide your user to. Prezi is a neat way to show information when you want a change of pace from the standard presentation software. (If you have forgotten how to utilize Prezi, take a quick look at the "Learn" tab.)

Activity: You will be creating a Prezi about a Web 2.0 Tool! You are to create a digital presentation portraying information about a Web 2.0 Tool that you have researched and feel would be important for students to learn about.

You wil need to search for the following media elements to include in your Prezi:
• Video tutorial about your Web 2.0 tool (TeacherTube or YouTube)
• Explanation of the Web 2.0 Tool, tips on using this Tool, etc.
• Examples of the Web 2.0 Tool in use (pictures, etc.)

Be creative and have fun using Prezi!
