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.

Hello. My name is Laila Lemcharfi. I am from Lafayette, Indiana, both born and raised. I am currently a freshmen in the College of Family and Consumer Sciences (CFS) Education. One day, I wish to be either a high school or college proffessor in CFS education. I currently have three jobs, and I like what I do at each one. When I have free time I like to hang with friends, explore nature, and listen to music.As you can tell from my picture, I like to have a good time and laugh. =)
Hi my name is Alyssa Miller. I was also born in Lafayette, but I grew up in Monticello, not too far from here (Indiana Beach). I am a junior studying elementary education and I have a Spanish certification as well. I hope to be able to do something with my foreign language, but that is still up in the air. I am currently president of Purdue Student Education Council and photographer/historian of Purdue Salsa Club. I like to plan parties, salsa dance, decorate, sing to anything, and enjoy spontaneous forms of fun. My parents also live on the lake so I love the sun, water sports, and my wave runners! I am really excited about my study abroad trip to Italy coming up this summer.

I did not read the directions clear enough, sorry. My introduction is also a comment but I will post it here, too. Hi, my name is Lauren Crabb and I grew up in Monticello, In. I am a freshman and just transferred to Purdue this semester from the University of Indianapolis. I am majoring in Elementary Education and want to teach in Indiana at a smal size elementary school. I love spending time with friends, being on facebook, and reading romance novels ( I can't wait for "The Last Song" to come out!) Also, summer is my favorite time of the year and I am counting down the days until school is out =)
Hello! My name is Morgan Stout. I am from a small town called Russiaville, IN which is about 45 min east of campus. I am a freshman at Purdue and am currently in the process of becoming an elementary education major. I'm currently observing a first grade class in block 1 and I love it. I can't wait to have a little classroom of my own. I love playing softball, volleyball, or watching basketball and football. I will be working at Camp Tecumseh in Brookston, IN this summer as a camp counselor (it's about 15 min away from Monticello area). I work at Hollister in the Tippicanoe mall, which is a decent job but things get kinda boring folding clothes for hours at a time so I am super excited to get outside in the nice weather this summer. The most exciting thing I've done this year so far is getting to hold a baby alligator in Florida on Spring break. Can't wait to get started on this project. I hope to see you all soon!
