This poster session focuses on student-centered technologies (SCT) and the role of web 2.0 technology modules in one program at Nebraska Wesleyan University that includes leadership development for K-16 and underserved students and mentors. SCTs foster deeper learning, embed authentic assessment, enhance learning communities, and foster social equity. The modules include low-threshold technologies (face-to-face and online interactions) and practical instructional strategies that integrate other 2.0 applications, including wikis, podcasting, blogs, and google applications. Through SCTs and modules, learning goals were tied to National Education Technology Standards or NETS standards. Initial findings are presented on students’ perceptions of SCTS and how web 2.0 technologies impacted learning communities including underserved students. Recommendations for users of SCTs and web 2.0 technologies are also provided for a wide range of preservice disciplines and working with underserved populations.
