    We will be using Web 2.0 tools and computer programs for lesson activities and research throughout the school year. This requires each student to create a username and profile for classroom use. The first step is to create a yahoo email account. Through this email account, the profiles can be created for the other web tools that will be used. (Create a yahoo account for classroom use even if you already have a yahoo email account).
