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.

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

So I accidentally blew up on Twitter last week.

National Teacher Day was May 9th, and I wanted to recognize that in a small way. I had a graphic that I created for a previous Twitter Chat, so I opened it back up, changed the top, and posted it with two small sentences and hash tagged it with #NationalTeachersDay. I tagged my usual tribe in the graphic so they would re-tweet it for me; they’re awesome like that. After that, I went about my day.…See More
