Dan CallahanJoanne Najarian and I facilitated the “Ultimate Web 2.0 Smackdown” and were joined by several educators including Karen Janowski and Valerie Beck as we spent no more than 3 minutes demonstrating the following tools:

  1. Hi Ms. Thumann,

    My name is Samantha, and I am a student in Dr. Strange’s EDM310 class at the University of South Alabama. I admire your position with the Center for Mathematics, Science and Computer Education. With the rapidly advancing technology of today’s world, teachers need to be familiar and educated with the latest technology in order to fully meet the needs of their students. Congratulations on being asked to present at the Tech Forum. What an honor! Thank you for sharing those links, they are going to be very helpful to me when I have a classroom of my own. Dr. Strange has had us use a few of them in his class, and I really enjoyed getting familiar with them. I am amazed at the abundance of resources that are at our fingertips. Thanks again for sharing.
