  1. 1. Web 2.0 in the Classroom: Collaborative Learning Tools for Science NSTA 2009 Annual Conference New Orleans, LouisianaStephen Best University of Michigan School of Education
  2. 2. Objectives
  3. 3. Objectives Review the common practices of science andsee possible online collaborative tools tosupport these practices
  4. 4. Objectives Review the common practices of science andsee possible online collaborative tools tosupport these practices Discuss the considerations of using Web 2.0tools to support science learning andinstruction
  5. 5. Objectives Review the common practices of science andsee possible online collaborative tools tosupport these practices Discuss the considerations of using Web 2.0tools to support science learning andinstruction Review examples of applications of commonlyused Web 2.0 tools for science instructionand learning
  6. 6. What do we ask kids to do to learn science?
  7. 7. What do we ask kids to do to learn science? take notes have a discussion do an experiment read a map make a graph draw a picture make a concept map write an essay make a table view a demonstration look up a denition watch a video solve a math problem explain a concept compare and contrast information search for reference information write a story make a list answer a question look at pictures read a book create a web page share information take a picture talk with a teacher ask an expert make a presentation post a link make a diagram etc.
  8. 8. The Practices of Learning Science Document creation / note-taking Brainstorming / concept mapping Drawing and diagramming Data collection and analysis Researching and reading text andinformation Viewing images or video Presentations and sharing information
  9. 9. Collaboration For years, rarely a focus for instruction!(we often try to prevent collaboration) A key component of the socialconstructivist approach to learning Allows for higher level thinking andanalysis on a level that previousactivities did not A critical skill for learners and scientistsin the 21st century
  10. 10. Where to start? Before you try nding tools, decidewhat the purpose of the use of thesetools is going to be! http://www.go2web20.net/ Choose the tools that are likely to stickaround for a while (i.e. they are backedby actual $) Limit the number of tools you intend touse
  11. 11. Document Creation/Notes Lots of possible tools that allowcollaboration Google Docs or other web-based ofcetools Note taking applications that allow for easysearching and navigation (Evernote, Zoho,or similar) Wikis can also be used for a large set ofinformation and tracking of collaborativeefforts
  12. 12. Brainstorming/ Concept Mapping Depends on the goal and functionalityof the tools Generally better left to other means,but there are tools that allow for this Webspiration, Spinscape,MindManager, and other tools for theweb (similar to Inspiration)
  13. 13. Drawing & Diagramming Option 2: Option 1: Capture of your paper/ Creation of online drawings, diagrams, and writing efforts or... designs Note-taking or Bamboo space and other document collection drawing and diagramming sites like Evernote sites Picture capture sites Allow multiple media and like Flickr multiple artists
  14. 14. Data Collection / Analysis It all depends on the types of data... Numerical data: online spreadsheets (GoogleDocs) Instrument specic data: content site tools(i.e. Weather Underground) Observation data: Text can use wikis andonline documents (i.e. Google or Zoho Docs) Image/Video data: Flickr and other imagesites
  15. 15. Research and Reading Text Google search (custom search enginetools) iPaper or other document reading sites Delicious, Digg, and other content reviewsites More basic text tools (blogs, wikis, etc.) Note taking tools that allow for webclipping
  16. 16. Viewing Images and Video Common image and video viewingsites(Flickr, Photobucket, YouTube, Vimeo) Content specic images and video(NASA, U.S. Geological Survey, etc.) Participant submitted video(TestToob, TeacherTube, etc.)
  17. 17. Presentations and Sharing Information Slide creation and presentation sites(280 slides, Google Presenter, etc.) Slide sharing sites (Slideshare, etc.) Video sites (slides exported as video-podcasts, downloadable/streamingvideo, etc.) Online document sharing (ScribdiPaper or others)
  18. 18. Assessment Does not depend on the tool Use the collaboration features of anyof the tools, and establish usefulrubrics for collaborative assessment More important to develop theguidelines and procedures for usingany of the previously mentioned sites
