Web Tools: The Second Generation
Pascopella, Angela
District Administration, v44 n6 p54-58 May 2008
Web 2.0 tools and technologies, or second generation tools, help districts to save time and money, and eliminate the need to transfer or move files back and forth across computers. Many Web 2.0 tools help students think critically and solve problems, which falls under the 21st-century skills. The second-generation tools are growing in popularity in schools, helping administrators and teachers organize their work and make curriculum connections with students who do not know how to communicate, or simply live without computers and these social tools. This article features Pennsylvania's technology plan using Web 2.0 tools. Connie Sitterley, director of instructional technology at PENNCREST School District in Saegertown, Pennsylvania, created the district's strategic plan. One of Sitterley's goals was to have students use Web 2.0 tools in computer labs and on the one or two computers in each secondary classroom.
