Students spend a lot of time on the computers because it gives them something to do. As teachers we want the students to learn but enjoy something about the lesson. Web 2.0 tools are one idea to integrate into your lesson. One is Glogster that has an educator site called GlogsterEDU that alows teachers to see her classroom post and keep it managable. Glogster allows the teacher to give the students so say a topic and let the students brainstorm the information. Glogster lets them include textboxes, sound, images, videos, link, embed videos and creative looks. The time and thought opens their minds to fun and learning with technology.
