ICT Tools

ICT tools

The following sites offer Web 2.0 tools that you can use to collect, create and transform classroom activities. Some of the tools can be used solely within your classroom. Other tools require that you upload to a public website. Please note that in uploading materials, you need to be aware of a number of important issues. The CyberSmart website is a great source of advice about this as is the eSmart website. Some of the issues you need to consider are:

•    Who owns copyright to all the materials you are uploading (text, music, images, etc)?
•    Who is going to see your work?
•    What is the nature of your content? Is it upsetting or offensive?
•    What kind of digital footprint are you leaving?

Please note that the sites listed below contain user-generated content that may not be suitable or may be offensive. You need to check with your school in terms of the policies they have in place for use of sites with Web 2.0 functionality.
