The personal learning network for educators
As part of our Summer Professional Development Series, we're excited to offer a free workshop on Web 2.0 tools for new teachers. Over the five-week workshop, participants will learn about one new tool a week, then they'll do some practice lessons before developing their own. As a group, participants will also be able to brainstorm ways to integrate these tools into the classroom in creative and engaging ways.

Each week, Lisa will discuss a new tool in a blog post, and offer some innovative ideas for use in the classroom. While gaining first-hand experience with each tool, Boot Camp participants will build on these ideas, and create their own and share with others as they get .
By the end of the camp, participants will have a lot of great first-hand exposure to some new tools, plus a whole repertoire of projects to use for your classroom.
