Definition of web2.0

Wikipedia describes web 2.0 as

"a term describing the trend in the use of World Wide Web technology and web design that aims to enhance creativity, information sharing, and, most notably, collaboration among users."

Any of us can now use these technologies to create learning objects, but our students can also be involved & can create their own. Hopefully this guide will describe them & get you thinking about which ones might be useful.
