So What is Web 2.0 Anways?

Web 2.0 is the cutting edge is the technological world. Most websites as we know them are Web 1.0, this means that they are informational. Web 2.0 includes websites such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Basecamp, Buddy School, Schoopy, and many more. Web 2.0 is about delivering the information people need while creating a community. For example, I really enjoy cooking, so I can go to and find, create and share recipes with other people on the site.

We need to start taking advantage of this new wave of technology in our classroom. You can go to the Web 2.0 Index and you will be able to find all the Web 2.0 sites available. I encourage you to explore and find ways to incorporate these new sites into your classroom. Try out, it is a social network where you can communicate with your students and parents. You can have discussions, post homework, give assignments, etc.

In the next few blogs, I will be writing about how you can incorporate Web 2.0 websites into your classroom.
