Higher Ed Web 2.0

Shift Happens 2.0.


Research has shown that students that are in today's K-12 schools experience learning in ways that are significantly different than students even 10 years ago. This is in part due to the use of Web 2.0 technologies that are being integrated into the learning experiences of today's students. The purpose of this workshop is to develop participants' knowledge and skills related to the uses of Web 2.0 technologies (blogs, wikis, podcasts, etc.) and how these technologies can be used with assistive technologies to increase their accessibility and the students' outcomes in the classroom. Hands on experiences linking these technologies to standards-based classroom activities will be provided.
