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 Everyone, My name is Chloe Howerton and I'm a freshman in USP, but I'm planning on CODOing into Elem. Ed. Sorry it has taken me so long to do this and for not being in class on Wednesday, I've been out of town. I'm still kind of trying to figure out what I'm even supposed to be doing. Anyway... I went to high school at Hamilton Heights in Arcadia, IN. (close to Noblesville, if you've even heard of that). I grew up with a pretty big family, 3 sisters, 3 brothers, I have one nephew and now a brother in law. Right now I just live in Lafayette with my dad though and one sister. My past time now a days is usually spent doing homework or hanging out with my family or friends.

My name is Adam Gable. I'm a sophomore here at Purdue. I'm 21 years old. I'm currently in Mathematics Education, but am strongly considering switching to Business Management or Accounting. I enjoy swimming, boating, and gymnastics. I have two sisters, one of which is my twin. I use to hate reading, but it's my new favorite thing to do to past the time.

Hey everybody! My name is Jennie Davis, I am from Danville IN, and I am a sophmore mathematics education major. I originally started out as an actuarial science major but realized that being an actuary was not the job for me at the end of my freshman year.  So now I am happy in my math ed position :) I currently live in Wiley Hall and am living there again next year.... Gotta love dining court food! My favorite extracurricular activity that I am in is BGR.  I am a supervisor this year and I'm having a blast getting ready for BGR 2010.  Its time consuming but I love it!

My name is Matt Trabaris and I am from Naperville IL. I came to Purdue under the impression I was going to do computer science, however I decided I did not like it and after soul searching I went into math education.  I enjoy playing all different types of sports, in particular I love playing ultimate frisbee.  I have two brothers, one teaches history, and the other is still in college. 

My name is Kay Nanninga. I am 19 years old and I am majoring in Special Education. I'm not sure if I'm staying in that major or not yet. I am from Chicago, Illniois and I attended Resurrection Catholic High School. I have 2 older brothers, a younger sister, and an older sister. I love to listen to country music, run, and play basketball. I also do a lot of volunteer work at home.

Hey! My name is Kaitlynn French and I'm 19 years old from North Manchester, IN. I am currently a freshman at Purdue in the Undergraduate Studies Program. I don't know what I want do in terms of a major but am considering double majoring in Political Science and Elementary Education-- maybe a minor in Interior design or something with communications. I enjoy sports (namely basketball, softball, and tennis), running, scrapbooking, and being around family and friends. I come from a big family: I have three brothers, three sisters, five nieces, and one nephew-- I am the second from the youngest among my siblings.
