Overview of Web 2.0


The use of the internet has changed from a resource from which we gather information to a resource that offers a more interactive experience. Nowadays, the internet provides Web 2.0 tools that can be utilized in order to better serve learners and make the learning experience more engaging and motivating for our 21st century students. According to Dictionary.com and Techterms.com, Web 2.0 is a tool in which students and teachers can have an interactive experience through features such as wikis, social networking, and blogs. Simply put, Web 2.0 is an open communication with an emphasis on Webbased communities of users, and more open sharing of information (webopedia.com). As teachers, we can utilize these Web 2.0 tools in order to improve accountability for students and lean more towards the role of facilitator. Additionally, we can make learning more engaging and motivate learners who are apprehensive and in some cases, apathetic.
