Digital Discussions: Using Web 2.0 Tools to Communicate, Collaborate, and Create

Brian Kissel, Karen Wood, Katie Stover, & Kim Heintschel


Discover new ways to use Web 2.0 tools to spur meaningful, interesting, and innovative conversations around texts. Best practices serve as the foundation for a number of practical, easy-to-implement ideas for using popular social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and VoiceThread to engage today’s students in reading, writing, and talking about texts. Plus, the authors provide hashtags and Twitter handles to continue digital discussions around these concepts—and your own ideas!
