Web 2.0 Wire

By Kristie Lynn Hellens

I found the following Web 2.0 tools to be of interest to me. What’s great about each one of these tools is their ability to display visual content in a meaningful and creative way right at our fingertips.

Popplet http://popplet.com/ This is a fun and simple way for students and/or teachers to record their ideas.  It could be used for individual assignments or collaborative projects.

Visual.ly http://visual.ly/ This tool gives students and/or teachers the ability to tell stories using data, and can be a means to creatively express the knowledge or skills  someone has pertaining to a particular content area or subject matter.  Visual.ly is a way to create, share, and explore visual content.

Glogster http://www.glogster.com/ Glogster is an easy way for users to create online multimedia posters.  Students can be creative by using text, photos, videos, graphics, sound, drawings, etc. as a way to demonstrate what they have learned through visual media.
