Strand One:  Discovering 21st Century Skills 


This is a self-guided tour.   Use the links below to explore 21st century skills, web 2.0 tools or helpful sites for your content area.


What IS web 2.0, anyway? 

Web 1.0 was basically one-way.  You went to a site, read it, purchased an item, etc.  

 Web 2.0 is two-way and collaborative, and much of your interaction occurs on the web(you don't have to "download" anything).  Blogs, Wikis, YouTube, Facebook and many other sites fit this category.  (Here is what Wikipedia says if you want a more "technical" definition.)     


Tech tools for Multiple Intelligences

Take the short quiz and find out if you're a kinesthetic, visual, or other kind of learner, then follow the links for tech tools and teaching ideas that match your(or your students') "multiple intelligence."




K12 Online Conference Presentations: the tools IN the classroom:

 K12 Online  is a virtual conference--all presentations are  posted online.  

Want to know more about using Google,

evaluating work? Grab your headphones and watch  25-60 minute presentation by teachers from around the world.   

Then put yourself on the conference map!
