Item 25 10 Web 2.0 application relevant to teacher’s work.
As Web 2.0, the world wide web has become a medium for online software services. It is a universal channel where people can access remote software right through a web browser. Spreadsheeting, word processing, web-based email, project management, movie and file sharing, graphic design services and gps. All of these online software choices can be found via a web browser. While the web also remains a place for brochures and general information about the world, it is now also a medium for tools and computer services.
1. Wikis Sites like Wikipedia and others enable users from around the world to add and update online content.
2. Digital photo processing Online digital photo printing has been made easy. The online companies allow you to easily print pictures, create photo books, photo cards and much more.
3. Video hosting A video hosting service allows people to upload video content to share, distribute or place on a website. Users generally upload via the hosting service's website, mobile or desktop applications. This would be beneficial for school websites or for students to share their learning with others.
4. Photo gallery services There are thousands of free image hosts, some which focus on providing a cheap or free place to host an online gallery for photography, images or artwork. E.g. Flickr is a free way to upload and share digital images online. It allows us to create an account for free and you’ll be ready to upload soon after that. It’s possible to organize collections, share them with friends or limit who can see them too. Many school webpages use flickr to display student photos.
5. Word processing Using a computer to create, edit, and print documents. Of all computer applications, word processing is the most common. To perform word processing, you need a computer, a special program called a word processor and a printer. A word processor enables you to create a document, store it electronically on a disc or on a ‘cloud’ like Google drive, display it on a screen, modify it by entering commands and characters from the keyboard, and print it on a printer. This document, if saved on a ‘cloud’ can be shared with others and the owner can permit them to edit the content.
6. Spreadsheeting A spreadsheet is an interactive computer application program for organization and analysis of data in tabular form. It can be used in many ways such as: Observation sheets Record of test grades Attendance record Reward charts Record of tasks completed Checklist for assessing group skills.
7. Music and File Sharing File sharing is the practice of distributing or providing access to digitally stored information, such as computer programs, multimedia (audio, images and video), documents or electronic books. It may be implemented through a variety of ways. Common methods of storage, transmission and dispersion include manual sharing usb keys, centralised servers on computer networks, www- based hyperlinked documents, and the use of distributed peer to peer networking.
8. Mapping services Online mapping services are used for tasks such as planning trips, determining geographical positions, finding landmarks and businesses, obtaining addresses and phone numbers. This service benefits teachers and students across all curricular subject areas.
9. Blogs Blogs are web logs that are updated on a regular basis by their author. They can contain information related to a specific topic. In some cases blogs are used as daily diaries about people's personal lives, political views, or even as social commentaries. In a school context, students can use blogs as a record of their learning and teachers can use them as a method of assessment.
10. Social Networking Sites A social networking service is a platform to build social networks or social relations among people who, for example, share interests, activities, backgrounds, or real-life connections. Social networking sites can be used, if monitored correctly, to create groups. They can be used to help one another with subject content and research.
