Presentation Title
“Putting the Pedagogy into the Tools”

This presentation includes specific ideas, tips, and mini lessons centered on the pedagogical use of web 2.0 tools. All teachers need ways to easily and effectively weave these tools into the curriculum/instruction. These are quick takes on an activity that could be done with the tools in an engaging way. Most are quick, easy to implement and designed to have beginning web 2.0 teachers feel “Yeah, I could do that!” Those of us who have been using the tools could think “Yeah, what a great idea. I’m going to do that too!” or “I know just the teacher who would love trying this!”

    OK, 2 minutes into your presenstation and I am trying out Animoto. It is do cool. I went thru a list of the tools on that you are presenting, and I am super excited to give more of them a try. Thanks!

  2. Is the presentation only two minutes? I wasn’t sure. I did visit wiki, I guess I’ll go from there.

  3. Nicole says:

    This was great! I can’t believe how quickly I was exposed to such easy and valuable web tools. Even better–they’re all free. I can’t wait to try out these tools and start blogging with my students.

  4. Nerissa says:

    This session was very inspirational and informative. I learned about web tools that can really help “keep things fresh and exciting” in the classroom.

  5. Wendy Wolfe says:

    Anne –
    Thank you for sharing some great tools! Just when I think it is amazing to see how many free tools are out there for our students, more tools appear. I love the ideas.

  6. Angie Simmons says:

    I would like to put the link to the wiki in my book on Web 2 I am writing at the moment. Could I have your permission please. My other books are published with Essential Resources (

  7. I loved the idea of creating a time where all students and teachers would write during the school day. What a great way to get students to do more than just regurgitate the information that is provided to them. Let them think about what they want to say and how they want to say it. Great presentation!

  8. Anne, I finally got to this presentation just in time for the new school year. My pioneers will love your wiki as a resource for tools and I am working on making one for our school that they can add to. Things have changed since you posted this in Oct. 07, but your definition of pedagogy is strong and a great reminder of keeping the focus on the learning and not the teaching.

  9. […] have sent elementary teachers in my courses to this session, but I hadn’t fully reviewed it myself. I had referred teachers to Anne as I had read enough […]
