Here is a list of 2.0 tools that were awesome in our school in 2010.
1. Imagination Cubed: Draw pictures with friends (anywhere). This is a great tool for anticipatory sets and closures.
2. Tagxedo: It is similar to wordle and imagechef, where you can create a word collage but with tagxedo you can add awesome images to bring more meaning to your collage.
This tagexdo was made to introduce our staff to our school community. Here is a tagexdo of one of our teacher's.
3. Wallwisher: A collaborative way to share thoughts with virtual sticky notes.
Our school community used this wallwisher to share our thoughts on hope after reading the book "Ruby's Hope".
4. Prezi: A presentation tool that uses a map that has multiple layers and interesting ways to layout text, image and video. It is a non-linear way to present information.
This prezi was made to deepen our understanding of the 7 Habits at our school. Grade 3 students then made their own prezi on the habits.
5. Glogster EDU: This is a virtual poster. You can add images, videos and graphics to present information.
This glog was made to introduce our computer club on our school wiki.
6. Domo-Animate: You can create mini movies with domo.
This is made by a Grade One student.
8. I moved from Delicious to Diigo this past year. I love the collaboration with research, the highlighting and sticky notes.
9. Twitter is definitely a favorite. This is a place where I reflect with my PLN on Web 2.0 and 21st Century Learning.
And one that I just discovered and will begin playing with to see how I will use it in the classroom is:
10. Museum Box: You can showcase images and present information in a unique, multi-layered way.
Look at this museum box on the inner planets:
Click a box and it takes you to a cube with information that a student has added:
Whew! That is a cool tool! I can't wait to try it with my class in the New Year.
What was your favorite 2.0 tool that you used this past year?
