Fall CUE 2010 Napa Conference: Using Web 2.0 in the ELD Classroom

Please look at the bottom for additional links shown at the presentation.

Larry Ferlazzo and I are excited to be presenting at the CUE Fall conference in Napa, California. Our session is titled Using Web 2.0 in the ELD Classroom, and will feature some of the many online tools that we use for English Language Development in our classrooms. It should be a faced-paced, information-filled session, but so you don’t have to worry about missing anything, here is a list of the sites we will be showing:
