    Full Session Description
    This Classroom Instruction That Works "Cool Tools" session focuses on how we can integrate Web 2.0 tools with research-based effective instructional practices identified by Marzano's meta-research. Come explore tools that support effective instruction while making learning fun and engaging for all students. We will explore one or two web-based tools for each "category" of CITW and classroom examples will be provided for each tool.
    Objectives
    To understand how digital tools are a component of effective classroom instruction in the 21st Century classroom.
    To explore (hands-on) a few Web 2.0 tools that align with some of the categories of effective instruction identified in Classroom Instruction That Works.

    Classroom Instruction That Works Background Information
    Classroom Instruction That Works is a collection of effective strategies culled from a meta-analysis of decades of research on what works in classrooms to improve student learning and increase student achievement. This meta-analysis was conducted by Robert J. Marzano, Debra J. Pickering, and Jane E. Pollock. They combined these effective strategies into nine broad categories:
    Identifying Similarities and Differences
    Summarizing and Note-Taking
    Reinforcing Effort and Providing Recognition
    Homework and Practice
    Nonlinguistic Representation
    Cooperative Learning
    Setting Objectives and Providing Feedback
    Generating and Testing Hypotheses
    Questions, Cues, and Advance Organizers

    My personal "Swiss Army Knife" of Digital Tools:
    - Wikispaces
    - Google Docs/Apps
    - Evernote
    - Dropbox
    With the exception of editing Google Docs, all of my "Swiss Army Knife" tools are accessible on my laptop, iPad, and iPhone.
    Wikispaces and Google Docs allow me to create and share collaborative content with others.
    Evernote is my "digital Trapper Keeper" (and when I say that I see the image of the original Trapper Keeper in my mind -- showing my age!)
    Dropbox is simply one more essential tool for saving and sharing docs across all of my devices - I'm starting to download email attachments directly into Dropbox now
