Web 2.0 Gadgets

At the ISTE conference I was lucky enough to be in Leslie Fisher’s “Gadgets for Everyone” session. Leslie is an entertaining presenter and as she calls herself the “Chief Geek.”
She discussed tool from one to help keep us organized called Remember the Milk” to tools to help post video, blogs, and voice threads. If you didn’t get to see Leslie, at least you can look at her presentation slides at: http://www.lesliefisher.com/handouts/

What are your favorite Web 2.0 tools and how do you use them?

  1. Dave – Thanks for sharing the link to Leslie’s handouts – I went to one of her sessions too and learned about many amazing tools!

    Two of my favorite new Web 2.0 tool “finds” right now are Wallwisher and Type With Me. Both offer the opportunity for collaboration and information sharing.

    Wallwisher (http://www.wallwisher.com) is like an electronic post-it-note bulletin board. Any time you want to quickly gather feedback from a group of students (or teachers during a PD session) – this is the tool to use. I saw an amazing use of this in a classroom where the teacher was actually working on a lesson to get some 2nd graders to ask good questions. They worked in groups to come up with questions they wanted to pose to another classroom or teacher in their school. I have never seen a more engaged group of second graders!

    The other tool I learned about recently is Type With Me. (http://typewith.me/) Multiple people can build a document – either from scratch or oen that you upload. Each person types in a different color. There is also a chat window so the collaborators can share ideas as they go.

    The nice thing about both of these tools is they don’t require an account to be set up. They generate a unique URL (one that you assign) for the document or wall being created.
