Exploring Tools of the 21st Century Classroom

Today's students are engaged in technology in a way that we have not seen in previous generations or with technology tools of the past. However, with all of their apparent usage, teens understanding of the technology tends to be rather shallow.? In this combined session, the presenters will explore the use of blogs, wikis, microblogging, avatars and 3D worlds, streaming video, and other Web 2.0 tools that can be used to add a little pop and zing to your online teaching.
