Web Tools in Action



Welcome to Web Tools in Action. There has been a lot of talk lately about how we are placing too much emphasis on the actual tool and not talking enough about how to successfully implement them in the classroom. There are lots of great examples of teachers who have their students create really cool projects using podcasting, wikis, digital stories, and blogs. I could go on and on, but you get the idea. The problem is that these examples are all over the web, but they are not linked in one central location which makes it difficult when we are trying to find examples to share. If you have examples of projects that you would like to share please link and describe them on the correct page. If the page you need does not exist then please add it. I'm sure there is something I have omitted. Please share examples of how you have used these tools to help train teachers. Sometimes how we use these tools to teach adults can spark ideas for how to use them in the classroom.


I am not interested in finding the absolute BEST ways to implement web tools into the classroom. I am looking for ALL examples of how teachers have used these tools. Teachers have this amazing way of taking a project and putting their own spin on it to make it work for them and their students, but many times we just need an example to get us going. Many teachers would love to have their students' work showcased, but they are not aware of this wiki. Chances are they will be honored if you ask if you can share their work, but please ask them first.


When you share your links please also include a brief (or long) description of the project or idea. If there were any pitfalls that you came across while you were working on your project that you can help other teachers avoid. I realize some of the projects cannot be linked. If that is the case then please add a description.


This has the potential to be a fantastic resource for educators in all subjects and grade levels, but we have to create it first. If you share the link to to this wiki with everyone you know it could eventually contain links to hundreds of cool projects. The power of crowd-sourcing is amazing, but only when people are willing to help out.

I taught a course for teachers on best practices for using (web) technology in science and math classrooms. My blog post about it, including a link to the course's resource wiki:
