Carmel Middle – Tech Talk – Web 2.0 Buffet

Literacy and Technology –CMS- Follow Up

Thanks so much for coming yesterday! I know I threw a lot at you, but my hope is that you found a few tools you feel like you could use in the classroom with students. I would be happy to help get you started in using any of the tools you think would help you better engage students in authentic literacy experiences.  Maybe even try giving Etherpad and Glogster a try before you start.  Find tutorials and more on the Wiki, just click the pic below!

STUDENT ACCOUNT CONTROL AND CREATION:

The question was asked, what do we do to get students signed up for some of these tools that require logins, and have control over it?  Check this blog post out on how to do this.  I have used this trick many times!
