Great App's Using Web 2.0


   This app is really great for both teachers and students because it allows both parites to create and explore numerous different avenues to creating presentations. iMovie is an app that is used to create movies and powerpoint type presentations so it comes in very handy in the classroom. Students are able to either film themselves talking and preparing a skit type of presentation or by adding images to the movie itself and adding overlaying text to get the message across. This type of app really removes and reduces barriers of students that find the traditional way of showing what they know (ie essays) because now they are able to work on something that engages them and that they are more comfortable doing. For age groups, I really feel that any student from grade 7 onwards could use this technology because it is so user friendly.
