Web 2.0 That Works: Marzano & Web 2.0:About
From Web 2.0 That Works: Marzano & Web 2.0
Purpose of this Website
The purpose of this website is to provide a space to collect information about tools and strategies that combine the Nine Categories of Classroom Instruction That Works with Classroom/Web Technology Integration.
Initially this site is being organized by the nine categories with each page consisting of web 2.0 tools and ideas for using them with strategies within each of those categories.
Website organizers may eventually change the organization to improve access to the information.
Developed by Stephanie Sandifer (author of Change Agency blog). Special thanks to Vicki Davis (Cool Cat Teacher Blog) for ideas, inspiration, and encouragement, and to John Pederson for assistance with using MediaWiki to create this wiki.
Readers can trace some of the development of the ideas behind this website by visiting the following blog posts where the wiki idea originated:
- Stephanie Sandifer's original blog post on Marzano & Technology written during Classroom Instruction That Works training conducted in June 2006.
- John Pederson's blog post on Classroom Instruction That Works in the Blogosphere -- a post that Stephanie discovered when doing a quick search on the web for CITW and technology connections.
This site was inspired by a page on the Jordan School District in Utah that combined Classroom Instruction That Works with Technology Integration. This site expands on that work to include newer web-based tools and by providing a space where users may post additional resources and examples.
Special Notice regarding this website & Using Technology With Classroom Instruction That Works
This website is not associated with McREL, and is not associated with the book Using Technology With Classroom Instruction That Works. However, Using Technology With Classroom Instruction That Works is an excellent resource for anyone seeking to merge technology tools with effective classroom instruction. The book focuses primarily on software packages while only touching briefly on the adoption of Web 2.0 tools in the classroom. This website bridges that Web 2.0 gap while also being a continually updated resource on how Web 2.0 tools can be used in conjunction with the effective instructional strategies included in Marzano's Classroom Instruction That Works categories.
