A. Place your informal response to the Web 2.0 Safety Article here (approximately 250 words):
I agree with Ms. Willard’s statement about filtering systems not being a solution to Internet Safety. Filtering systems I have used, block legitimate sites and allow some inappropriate sites to be available. The problem is that the government has linked school funding to the use of filtering systems, so even though we all agree that they are not the solution to the problem, filters will be used for many years to come. I have also taught Internet Safety to students in grades K-5, using the old fashioned fear-based rules. I found teaching Internet Safety to have the opposite effect of what was intended. When I talked about social network sites, to explain why fourth and fifth graders should not use them, the students who had never heard of MySpace, the most popular social network at the time, wanted to know more about the site so they could start to use it. Supervision and monitoring is a wonderful idea, and can be done when teaching in a computer lab. The problem exists when students have free time on the computer during lunch and recess when someone other than the classroom teacher or media/technology specialist is not available. If the entire school enforces the policy it can work, however in my experience, this rarely seems to happen.





B. Post the URL or embed your presentation on the new web2.0 tool you have discovered for possible use with a fieldtrip here (remember, you must use a web2.0 tool to do this):

H Reflection
List here all the web 2.0 tools you have used in your three sets of assessment/assignments.
The three tools that were selected for each of the assessments were ToonDoo, Sketchcast, VoiceThreads and GabCast
WHY did you select these tools for the specific assignments?
The tools were selected because I wanted to choose tools that would allow the students to tell their story without writing. I choose the second grade because the Family Discover Night that I attended seemed to be geared to that age group.
What are some of the challenges you might expect in terms of having your students use each of these tools?
The major challenge that would occur is that every student who is not assigned ToonDoo will be complaining. Sketchcast is difficult to write and draw at the same time, but it is quite possible that the students will not have a problem. VoiceThreads is difficult use without instruction, so the instructor will have to spend some time explaining how to use the product to the most advanced students that usually do not need additional support.
