Using Web 2.0 Technologies in the Classroom

students using technology in lab classroom

Recently I was invited by Chicago State University Center for Teaching & Research Excellence to lead a workshop for CSU faculty on the use of Web 2.0 technologies in the classroom. To accompany this hands-on workshop titled Using Web 2.0 Tools in the Classroom to Engage and Inspire Students offered August 28, 2012, I prepared an online interactive handout with links to many samples and online resources. During this session, several common Web 2.0 technologies were introduced and participants were then given the opportunity to further explore selected technologies and begin designing an activity that leverages chosen technology.

If interested in taking a closer look, the handout is available at
