Brief Project Description:

This project was developed for the following reasons:

  • To get students to examine, explore, and investigate various types of Web 2.0 technologies, as well as discover ways to use those tools to enhance teaching and learning.
  • To have students work on a real-world, team-based problem where they need to develop skills of communication and cooperation in order to create and deliver the needed wiki repository outcome.
  • To have students gain a more global perspective, by including team members from universities around the world.
  • To develop a practical tool that helps anyone at any time and location review, compare, and select effective Web 2.0 tools.

Hi Team! My name is Tracy Franklin and I will be one of your Project Managers.

Here's a little bit of information about me: I am a Social Studies Education major and I'm looking forward to teaching U.S. History and Psychology to upper-level high school students.  An interesting fact about me is that I have already graduated!  After graduation I worked for a consulting firm in Chicago for a year and a half.  I decided to return to Purdue because I wanted to pursue a career that I could be passionate about.  I live on the south side of Lafayette with my husband Joe and our puppy Murphy. 

I am really exicted about working with you and I am looking forward to getting to know you better.

    Hey team, I'm Kayla Kepner.  I am a sophomore majoring in Spanish Education.  Although I am a sophomore, this is only my second semester at Purdue because I attended Ivy Tech my first year of school.  I am originally from Fowler, Indiana, which is small town only about thirty minutes from here.  I graduated in 2008 from Benton Central High School, where I played softball and basketball.  I am still really involved with sports and hope to coach a high school sport along with teaching high school Spanish upon graduation. I live in a house off campus with two roomates.  I spend most of my time with my boyfriend of over three years, Ray, and my goldendoodle, Lola.  I am glad to be on your team and think we will enjoy working together!

    Hi everyone!  My name is Jane Sloan, and I'm a sophomore at Purdue University, planning on majoring in Mathematics & Special Education!  I'm looking forward to teaching High School Calculus, and helping coach or get involved in clubs at the school.  I coach softball every summer for high schoolers, and I love it!  Here at Purdue I'm often busy working, studying, or hanging out with friends!  If you have any questions or want to get to know me, feel free to ask! :)
