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 

    (the basic internet) was, more or less, one-way.  You went to a website and looked at it, 

                  ordered from it, or used it

     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, 

cell phones in the classroom, blogging, putting the "good teaching" behind the tools, 

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

Then put yourself on the conference map!  


For example, this 20 min. video is a great discussion of what a 21st century classroom can be like.
