Web 2.0 Tools for Schools


Combinations of sites can be used for one project. An example of a project might be to create a report for History, (or any subject) and hyperlink words throughout your report to link to places on the Internet.  These links should support your report, (data sites) and enrich it with additional facts.  Use a text editor such as "Word" or "Notepad" to type your vocabulary,  vocabulary words can be highlighted and copy them into Voycabulary. Vouycabulary is linked directly into several dictionaries, and the vocabulary words and their definitions will automatically appear in the window.  Use  Quizlet to learn the words for class. The report could be given to other students, and they would be responsible for reading the report as well as following the links to further information.  The student would give a brief report or a quiz, created by the original student who wrote the article, could be given to the reader.

Before we look at all the tools below, let's look to the "cloud", and the applications we have there. 

  1. Canvas   The idea for Canva came about when Melanie Perkins was teaching graphic design programs at university and found students struggled to learn the basics. Partnering with co-founder Cliff Obrecht, the pair launched Fusion Books, an online design tool that made it easy for students and teachers to create their own yearbooks. They soon realised that the technology they'd developed could be used much more broadly. After searching far and wide, they launched Canva with tech co-founder Cameron Adams.
