Top 20 Web 2.0 Tools for Teachers and Librarians

[tweetmeme source=”wordpress” service=”tinyurl.com”]

My wife and I have made several presentations regarding the free technology tools for teachers in the past several MECA conferences.  Many teachers indicated that they liked the sessions and they were benefited from the free tools they discovered in our presentations.  Because of the success we had in the past, we gave another presentation “Top 20 Web 2.0 Tools for Teachers and Librarians this morning at the 2010 MECA Conference in Jackson, Mississippi.  This presentation focuses entirely on the most current and popular Web 2.0 applications that are powerful and valuable to teachers and librarians.  Here is our presentation.  Hope you find it helpful.

    我覺得很幸運我能在成大修到阮教授所開的新興教育科技這門課,在阮教授介紹的這20種Web 2.0 Tools裡,我們短短的兩個月就學了10種,除了開了我的眼界,也讓我思考充斥在網路世界的這些軟體我應該如何適當的融入到教育中。

    在新興科技教育這門課,快速且充實的讓我學會至少十種以上的新興軟體以及相關的運用方式。其實,網路上很多軟體都大同小異,各有優缺點,當然學習各種不同的軟體,就能依照自己當下適合的情境與場域來規劃與運用科技軟體,接觸越多你越能了解什麼樣的科技適合運用與結合在教育上,什麼樣的軟體適合在教學成果呈現上,就像一個好的產品有精美的包裝,就很容易銷售成功,在教育上也是!

    It is encouraging to see a presentation focused on teachers and librarians in terms of the Web2.0 technologies which are available. Librarians are often the most underutilized or misused members of a school staff. Their knowledge of information literacy, research skills, and general literacy is an asset to teachers and should be respected.

    When librarians play a central role in the instruction and encouragement of good research and presentation skills, they can provide instrumental assistance to the classroom teacher who may be untrained in those areas. In schools with fully equipped computers in the library, the librarian can offer individual guidance, group lectures, and practical hands-on-training of Web2.0 learning tools. Given the resources of the school and the time allocated for the librarian for each class, appropriate training and support for information literacy programs and courses which support the use of online Web2.0 learning tools can be determined.

    In my experience, librarians in schools are often teachers who are simply not provided with as much contact time and responsibilities for training students in information retrieval, collection, and assessment as they were trained for. Providing more teaching opportunities and access to training for Web2.0 learning tools will enrich the school environment as a whole and help librarians to reach their own teaching objectives.
