Web 2.0 is based on authoring tools that are designed to be simple, distributed and collaborative. This has led to the development of web communities and hosted services, such as wikis, blogs, social-networking sites and folksonomies. The power of Web 2.0 is in leveraging collective intelligence.

I am interesting in investigating the following Web 2.0 technologies for their usefullness in teaching and learing.

Over the next several monthes I will evaluate these technologies. Ultimately I am to find the best of each for use in K – 12 education.
