Digital Tools for Learning Across the Curriculum

Here are two links to livebinders that present a variety of Web 2.0 tools for digital instruction and information literacy.

The first is a presentation I gave to Fordham Preparatory School in Bronx, NY this afternoon.  If you’re new to incorporating instructional technology into the classroom, this is the one to start with.  I’ve included a few assignments from my class to illustrate how easy it is to plug in a variety of content.

This second livebinder is a well-curated compilation by an educator in North Carolina.
