Choosing a Web 2.0 Tool

I was asked to give a presentation at Northwestern Michigan College last week to help faculty and staff decide which Web 2.0 tool to use for their projects or courses.  It’s more common to do a “gee-wiz” presentation on what Web 2.0 tools are out there and how they could be used, so this was a little unusual.

As such, I had to sit down and think about how I decide what tools to choose, and then do a little research about what other eLearning professionals consider when deciding what to use.

The result of this thinking and researching was a new handout to use for the presentation to help participants either choose between general tools (like wiki, blog, or website) or more specific choices like (Animoto, Prezi, Slideshare).

Please feel free to use this handout if it is helpful to you (you can always find it under Resources -> Handouts on this site.

    Have you seen “Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy“? It maps Web 2.0 tools to the categories in Bloom’s taxonomy of educational objectives. So for instance, tagging photos on Flickr is an example of an “understand” level task.

    I think it’s a useful tool for selecting Web 2.0 tools that correspond to learning objectives.
