  Description Technology takes many forms in today's high schools -- from smart board, to data acquisition devices to digital libraries with web-based lessons, simulations and other interactive resources. As we prepare physics teachers, we need to integrate these web-based teaching resources that were not available even a few years ago. Web 2.0 teaching tools, easily learned, free, and immediately available, could markedly enhance and augment physics learning in novel and unforeseen ways. Using web tech tools such as Google Docs to organize, design, access, and assess lessons seamlessly is integral to teaching in the 21st century classroom. This workshop will give examples of best teaching practices that incorporate these tools for high school and college instruction. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops.
