CNDLS is researching innovative educational uses for a wide variety of Web 2.0 tools, including microblogging, social bookmarking, and data visualization tools.
For example, Georgetown Spanish students plot Che Guavara’s journey through Latin America using Google Earth; English MA thesis writers follow each other’s research using Yahoo! Pipes; and students at the University of Texas in Dallas share comments and questions via Twitter during history class.
Visit our Experiments blog for case studies, resources, and tips on how you might use these and other tools in the classroom, and watch for announcements of upcoming workshops on these topics. If you have ideas for future Web 2.0 experiments, please contact us.
