Web 2.0 Tools

This is a collection of examples of Web 2.0 tools for collaboration and communication. Web 2.0 is a shift from a "read only" Internet to a web where users can both read and write to interact with web content created by others, create your own content, and communicate and collaborate in a myriad of new ways. Facebook and MySpace are examples of social networking, hence are Web 2.0 tools that you may already know about and use. Students in my classes should explore all examples related to Web 2.0 in order to gain a better understanding of what is available for teaching and learning in Web 2.0.
