Tool# 6 Using Web Tools to Promote Communication in and out of the Classroom

I created a bulletin board using Wallwisher. I made a model of a list of the things I made during summer break. There are many different things that can be done in a bulletin board and I chose to create a list because we spend a lot of time at the beginning of the year modeling how to write lists. This tool will be a fun way to encourage students to create our class lists. I am sure my students will have fun sharing information and collaborating to create list and many other documents. Skype is another great tool I found appropriate to use in my classroom. I created an account and I plan to start using it from the beginning of the school year. It will be a great learning experience for me and my students to communicate with students and teachers from other classrooms in the school and from the district.

  1. skyward.. Oh Skype! Yes, easy to get into other classrooms! The challenge is finding other classrooms. I thin Edmodo could really open some doors for you that way!
