IN PRACTICE


Social Bookmarking Social bookmarking tools allow students to share information found online in a variety of formats. Students can store, organize, and share Internet resources concerning class topics. In addition to the Web URL, students can add their own comments as well as organize the resource with keywords or tags that can be used to search for information at a later time. Examples of social bookmarking sites are delicious (http://del.icio.us/), backflip (http:// www.backflip.com), and edutags (http://www.edutags.com).


How Can Social Bookmarking Improve Learning and Assessment? Students may critically evaluate Web resources, select appropriate resources for a project or activity, and post this information on their social bookmarking Website to share with the class. Teachers can use selected Web resources to teach students to discriminate between fact, opinion, and propaganda.


Interactive White Boards Students can manipulate objects on Interactive White Boards, as well as draw, write, or solve math problems. For example, map pieces of the world can be arranged in their appropriate place on the globe and students can manipulate the text by moving it around.


How Can Interactive White Boards Improve Learning and Assessment? Interactive white boards provide a log or timeline of data. Information that is placed on the board can be saved onto a computer and posted on a class Web site for students to access later. This information can help with review or homework assignments or create a record of student progress over time.
