Web 2.0 in Education

The Web has been rapidly evolving from a place to consume content to a more interactive modality which emphasizes collaboration, user created content and interconnectivity. Commonly referred to as Web 2.0, this emerging iteration of the Web is making it ever easier for students to connect with external audiences and make their learning public. In these PowerPoint presentations, we explored the variety of ways Web 2.0 tools and communities are being used to publish student projects and assignments. We also looked at some of the pedagogical, social and privacy issues associated with making student learning public.
