This workshop was held in Turkey in April 2016.
Like the workshop “21st century students” it is an extra workshop, not initially programmed.
The “Web 2.0 for students” looked for pupils to learn tools that will be useful to them in their academic future. Curricula, whether secondary or university, are increasingly important in the development of skills such as collaboration, communication or digital competence. That is why our students must start to have resources and know the tools that allow them to acquire those skills.
In this workshop they were given some of the most interesting applications that will allow a correct development of projects and jobs in the future academic and professional.
The methodology used was, on the one hand, explanations and presentations of the teacher, and on the other, a practical session in which they could use several of these tools. In this second part, Learning by doing, cooperative learning and discovery learning, together with the use of ICT in teaching, have been the key active methodologies.
The review of the students will allow to deepen the knowledge of the activities carried out in the workshop

“Last Friday, 13th of April, when we were in Rize because of Erasmus + project “Looking for an unifying theory of new methodologies” in where Adil Tugyan taught us some of a lot of educative apps like Mymunka, you can search the name of people and look for all the educative links that are related with them, it is really useful when you have to investigate in order to do a work even to look for all the articles that they have published; Bookmaking, that is used to create your own online library, where you can save all your notes in a link in order to have them in a safe place.
For group working we highlight PrimaryPad that helps us when we want to make a brainstorming, all the students can send their ideas at the same time.
In the communication area, internet is very useful because it has a lot of apps to send images or videos for example mailIVU or vialogue; and we discovered etwinning too, that is a kind of blog that belongs to the educative area and it is shared by teachers and students so as to use a forum, upload projects, photos, videos…
We think they are really practical and we will use them in a future because of their efficiency and quickness.
After all this, we started to practice with some of these tools like Etwinning, Todaysmeet or Tackk and did some activities relating all we knew by this moment about learning for the 21st century but this time with these wonderful apps.
With them we’ve discovered new ways to learn. One of these ways to learn is by using Taskk. It’s an app which creates a notice board and you can add videos, photos and others, this programe can be also used like a social media where you can text to your friends or solve problems. Another way to improve our knowledge is by Todaysmeet.
This tool helps us to make our classes more dynamic and all pupils can participate with this. We could take presence in a class to use both of them. You could see how interesting and enriching are these new ways to make a unified Education System!!”
