Tools

Here are 50 Web 2.0 Tools that I love to use, some of which were addressed in the April College Board Consultant training. Name, web address and a short description of use are shown. More information on how to integrate these tools into a specific discipline can be found on that discipline's page. If you have a tool that you like to use, you can post your favorite Web 2.0 tools on this page. If you would like to provide a lesson plan for integrating the tool into a specific discipline, please add it to that discipline's page.
