Web 2.0 Tools for Teachers and Teacher-Librarians

This is a cool site for all you K-12 folks out there:
“This wiki was created for school library media specialists by Dr. Donna Baumbach and Dr. Judy Lee, University of Central Florida. The purpose is to provide information about some of the new web-based tools (Web 2.0) and how they can be used and are being used by school library media specialists and their students and teachers. Much of the information–including identifying a need for this kind of information–is the result of a survey conducted in 2008 of over 600 school library media specialists about their knowledge and use of web-based tools in library media programs.
Because WebTools4U2Use is a wiki, you can add information to any page. We encourage you to do so! Add or edit anything that you think will help other library media specialists learn more about Web 2.0 tools and use them creatively and productively in their programs. We’ve also created special pages for each category of tool so you can share other tools or show others how you and your colleagues are using the tools in your programs, or you can use the “discussion” link at the top of any page.”
The headings include:
Audio & Podcasting
Calendars, Task Management, & ToDo Lists
Photo & Photo Sharing
Portal & WebPage starting tools
Presentation Tools
Quiz & Polling tools
RSS & Aggregators
Social Bookmarking
Social Networks
Another useful and collaborative tool for encouraging web 2.0 stuff in the classroom and learning. It even includes a few downloadable flyers to promote the wiki.
