REVIEW
This is a great site for teachers to brush up on or learn to use the latest Web technologies in the classroom. The 23 free tutorials include text, images and audio and are designed to be completed in a nine-week period but you can do them at your own pace also. Tutorials can be done independently or in groups (groups are recommended). The design of the program was built on the Web 2.0 technologies that are freely available on the Internet. Users will learn about how to set up and use a blog, image hosting sites, RSS feeds and newsreaders, wikis, copyright, Creative Commons, online application tools, podcasts, video and downloadable audio, and more. The tutorial offers direct links to the Web 2.0 tools and offers suggestions for ways to incorporate these tools into your classroom and teacher collaborations.
