Innovative (and Cool!) Tools for the Educator Website: Using Web 2.0 Tools with Students in a Flipped Online Classroom Environment to Improve Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration, and Creativity.

With today’s focus on the online classroom, students need skills to succeed in a technologically driven educational journey.  Students must demonstrate competency in critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity in addition to core academic content.   Flipped classrooms provide educators the opportunity to cultivate these skills, but how can this be done in the online classroom? 

During the presentation, we will share how Psychology instructors can teach students to utilize Web 2.0 tools to enhance their learning, collaborate with others and in teams, and present to their instructor/class using a flipped classroom format in the online course.  We will demonstrate how students can utilize Web 2.0 tools to improve communication and collaboration.  We will also show how by using Web 2.0 tools, there are opportunities for enhanced creativity and critical thinking.  Finally, we will demonstrate how students can utilize Web 2.0 tools to embrace problem-based learning and inquiry based learning.
