I'd like to get some input from Social Studies educators, out there, on what you are doing in Web 2.0.  Please share the apps you are using and a little about how you are using them.

Does anyone know how to get the twitter widget to function on "my page"? I tried copying and pasting the embed code from twitter but nothing happens. Ideas?

Web 2.0 Apps and RtI

Does anyone know if someone has put together a list of RtI interventions that utilize Web 2.0 apps?  It seems to me that if the traditional techniques have not improved reading, it would be valuable to explore taking advantage of Web 2.0 apps as interventions.  Particularly, I would think this would be of value with those in Tier 3.  I'm curious if anyone has any ideas or input on this.

Hi Becky, went and checked out your blog. Some really useful things on there. I am getting so blogged down though with all the wonderful things I am discovering! Hope I come up on your revolving planet: did see a South African flag, but it was from Verwoerdburg and I am from Pietermaritzburg in Kwazulu-Natal. I live at HIlton College (private boys school) but work at Pietermaritzburg Girls High school, a government school; perhaps you could get your kids to Google Earth them and see what SA schools look like?
Best
Adrienne Watson

Overcoming writers block

Writer’s block is a term you’ve probably heard often. The amazing and confusing thing about writer’s block is that people apply the term to drastically different experiences. For many, “writer’s block” means a frustrating but temporary stall in their progress. For some authors, though, the phrase looms nightmarishly large and describes a recurring and debilitating struggle to move ideas from their mind to the page.Under the pressure of deadlines, almost everyone—from students to professors to…See More
