Since content and participation is difficult to control in blogging tools or video-sharing websites such as YouTube and TeacherTube, the vast majority of schools block or filter these sites.
The enormous educational value of Web 2.0 applications prompted K12HSN to develop and offer its own suite of tools to all California K-12 educators interested in utilizing these applications in a safe environment.
EdZone enjoys the benefits of a “trusted community” making it easy for K-12 teachers to take advantage of the educational opportunities of blogs, video, podcast, image and electronic document sharing websites in a safe and controlled environment.
The K12HSN trusted community is a fundamental aspect of edZone. This is why only verified employees of the California K-12 community can create a K12HSN account. By controlling who has access to edZone, K12HSN guarantees a greater reliability of the content available in each tool.
A K12HSN account will allow you to:
upload videos, podcasts, images and electronic documents in edZone
rate your peers' content,
schedule a videoconference with k12video.org,
update your school's connectivity data in dataLINK,
and much more...
