This Teaching with Thinking and Technology wiki is designed to document ideas and collect resources for teachers and students who are interested in using the web effectively and smartly.
My aim is to assist in developing a curriculum that meets the academic, social and personal needs of our students.
The major focus of this site is investigating how Web 2.0 applications can be used to promote thinking, sharing, collaborating and communicating between teachers and students.
The sites listed here are but a few of what is on the web. It will hopefully begin a journey of discovery for you.

As I continue on my journey of discovery I find that more and more there is a great need for developing understandings on how to be an effective global and digital citizen. So I am to build a section around the notion of a digital citizen.

For a very comprehensive international site for technology in education go to theInternational Society for Technology in Education- ISTE. ISTE is dedicated to helping educators around the world connect with information, people, and organizations. On this page you will find a variety of tools and resources to help you bring educational technology into the classroom. Don’t miss the links to hundreds of quality partner and vendor resources at the bottom of the page.

Collections of sites already on the web.
There are a number of sites that are already on the web that collect links to Web 2.0 applications. Some are not directly related to education. With a little imagination and ideas from yourself or others they can be a great start to your journey.
