Web 2.0

Site One: Edmodo

  1.  Brief Description- what is the site?  What is it supposed to do?

Edmodo is a combination between twitter and facebook. It is a way for parents, teachers, and students to communicate about assignments.

  1.  What standards (NETS-S or content) could using this site help to achieve?

This site would help you achieve the standard communication and collaboration standard along with digital citizenship.

  1.  Prerequisites- what do you need to know before using the site?

If you are a student or parent you need a code from the teacher to sign into their class and if you’re a teacher you just need to sign up for an account.

  1.  Strengths- good things that the site does (high interest for students, superior technical quality, bias free)

You can get this as an app that will send student notifications if a teacher post something. You as a teacher can also monitor what the students are posting about. I think that kids would use this to message their partners on a group project if they do not want to give out their personal information.

  1.  Limitations- perhaps the reading level is too high; maybe user guide is not very clear or organized

I think that a limitation would be smart phones. This way of communication works best with smart phones that not every student has.

  1.  Best guess on age group/grade level the site is intended for.

High school level (8th-12th)

Site Two: Jeopardy Labs

  1.  Brief Description- what is the site?  What is it supposed to do?

It is a website to make jeopardy game. It is to help test information in a fun way.

  1.  What standards (NETS-S or content) could using this site help to achieve?

This would achieve the creativity standard because students could make their own test questions for jeopardy.

  1.  Prerequisites- what do you need to know before using the site?

You do not need to do anything before using the website.

  1.  Strengths- good things that the site does (high interest for students, superior technical quality, bias free)

I think that this is a very easy way to make a jeopardy game for students.

  1.  Limitations- perhaps the reading level is too high, maybe user guide is not very clear or organized

There are no limitations that I can think of. You can always upgrade to a paying version to get more.

  1.  Best guess on age group/grade level the site is intended for.

I think this site is intended for teachers and 6th-12th graders.

Site Three: Toondoo

  1.  Brief Description- what is the site?  What is it supposed to do?

This is a website where people can create their own comic strips

  1.  What standards (NETS-S or content) could using this site help to achieve?

This would achieve the creativity standard along with writing standards.

  1.  Prerequisites- what do you need to know before using the site?

All you have to do is sign up for a free account and then you can begin creating.

  1.  Strengths- good things that the site does (high interest for students, superior technical quality, bias free)

This is a really fun way to get students to write about something. It would allow students to be creative and have fun.

  1.  Limitations- perhaps the reading level is too high, maybe user guide is not very clear or organized

This may be hard to create for some students and it does take time to understand how it works.
