Leigh Howell

Mr. Howell, Ms. Quaak, and an interdisciplinary team of educators form a study group to obtain a deeper understanding of Web 2.0 technology and develop methods to incorporate these emerging technologies into the district’s curriculum. Participants investigate and practice technology skills such as social-book marking, internet telephony, blogging, wikis, and collaborative workspaces and develop individual units or lesson plans utilizing this technology. The group shares their lessons with colleagues through staff meetings, lesson-modeling, and the creation of a group wiki.
