Today, over 3,000 of the Web 2.0 applications and services are available on the Web and many of them have great potentials in teaching and learning. The image link shown below was a presentation I delivered at the 2011 TxDLA 14th Conference in San Antonio two weeks ago. This presentation offers a list of 15 of the best Web 2.0 applications for teachers. These Web 2.0 tools are free and valuable to teachers and students.

Flubaroo is a free tool that helps you quickly grade multiple-choice or fill-in-blank assignments.     Besides grading, Flubaroo also calculates average assignment score, computes average score per question, and flags low-scoring questions, shows you a grade distribution graph, and gives you the option to email each student their grade, and an answer key.

In order to use Flubaroo, you must have a Google Docs or Gmail account.  I think Flubaroo is a useful tool for teachers to grade online assignment.  It helps teachers get reporting and analysis on student performance as well as email scores to students.

The advent of Web 2.0 technologies allows teachers to empower students and create exciting new learning opportunities. Students can use Web 2.0 tools to create, contribute, share, collaborate, connect, and participate in a global learning community. Already, many teachers took advantages of Web 2.0 technologies and implemented them into teaching and learning. However, many researchers have found that perceived usefulness, or the extent to which an individual believes that the use of technology will enhance performance, has a positive influence on behavioral intention.  Thus, studies of teachers’ perceptions and interests are critical because teachers’ perceptions are significant to the implementation of technology innovations in teaching and learning.

Yesterday, I gave a presentation on our recent research study at the 2011 Creating Futures Through Technology Conference in Biloxi, Mississippi.  In this presentation, my co-presenter, Patrivan Yuen and I discussed the findings of our study that examined Mississippi teachers’ perceptions, interests, and use of Web 2.0 tools in education.  The population of this study was Mississippi teachers at all levels.  Participants at the MECA and CFTTC conferences in 2010 were invited to participate in the study.  A total of 368 participants completed the questionnaire online.

You can view our Slideshare to learn more about our research study and its findings.  Also, please feel free to provide suggestions and comments.  Thanks.
