Hit the Ground Running: Web 2.0 Tools to Use with Students Today!

Juli Olson

12/10/11, 8:30 AM-3:30 PM
Minnehaha

Learn how to make amazing projects with your students using free tools found on the Internet. We will learn about fun and functional Web 2.0 tools to enhance your reading, writing, math and science curriculum and integrate technology with early elementary age students. We will learn to use Scratch to help students better understand mapping and directional concepts, Roxio Photoshow to further develop writing concepts and understand the elements of a story, create stop-motion animation movies with Jaycut to learn about metamorphosis and more. You'll be amazed at the number of applications that can extend your student's knowledge.
