Marzano and Web 2.0: Ed Tech that Works


Marzano and Web 2.0: Ed Tech That Works [Session : Lecture]

Marzano’s Classroom Instruction That Works is a collection of effective strategies, organized into nine broad categories, culled from a meta-analysis of decades of research on what works in classrooms to improve student learning and increase student achievement. This meta-analysis was conducted by Robert J. Marzano, Debra J. Pickering, and Jane E. Pollock. In this session, we will explore Web 2.0 tools and strategies such as blogging, wikis, and other web-based interactive tools that align with and support these research-based instructional strategies in the classroom.
This was a standing room only session that could have lasted all day. Believe me I would have stood for a couple of days to learn from her.
Stephanie D. Sandifer serves as an instructional coach at a Houston, Texas high school, is author of the Change Agency blog, and also writes for the LeaderTalk blog. She is an extraordinary presenter with her expertise and understanding of the time limitations of teachers however she also encouraged all of us to use the web 2.0 tools to save numerous hours of planning, producing, and organizing to increase student achievement. I really could write a lot about this session but Stephanie allowed us to have her NECC handouts, notes, and more via the wiki Web2ThatWorks. It can’t get any better than this.
I bet you won’t be able to tear yourself away from all of these valuable tools.

I am so grateful for the Master List of Tools provided through this resource. First thing I had to do was research what some of them were. There is so much to learn, but that is what makes technology so amazing!
Sounds like a wonderful trip :),
