Today's students are accustomed to a high level of interaction and collaboration with technology. This book helps teachers to design and deliver lessons in which technology plays an integral role. It provides practical strategies for using web tools to create engaging lessons that transform and enrich content. There is a particular focus on Web 2.0 applications that promote collaboration, such as social networking sites, live video streaming, blogging and wikis. These web 2.0 tools promote endless new ways of learning, such as online linking between students within the classroom, or with students overseas. Creating a Digital Rich Classroom demonstrates the success teachers can have in their classrooms when they combine technological tools with active learning and differentiated instruction.
