What is Web 2.0?



If you're interested in learning more about the origins of the concept of Web 2.0 here are some interesting places to visit:


What would it be like to have full integration of Web 2.0 tools in a school? The hyperlinked article below by David Warlick introduces the concept of a hypothetical school using Web 2.0 technologies and how their usage would change the face of education as we know it today. To read this article, please click here.  


There are some criticisms of Web 2.0 technologies. Some of these criticisms might explain why, from a school board's perspective, a school board might be reluctanct to allow full spectrum access to Web 2.0 tools in the classroom. To read a short criticism paper on Web 2.0 click here. There are, however, possibilities to use Web 2.0 in the classroom, if the proper policies (best practices policies) are adopted.

Interesting overview! The use of web 2.0 tools makes me think about the implications to assessment and evaluation in education. Would I be looking for the student's ability to choose appropriate tools (would know this); would I be looking at how the student used the tool (what would this evidence look like?). Hmmmmmmm....

I guess that depends on your objectives... good question!
