Web 2.0 Scavenger Hunt


"Here's my take on it: Web 2.0 is an attitude not a technology. It's about enabling and encouraging participation through open applications and services. By open I mean technically open with appropriate APIs but also, more importantly, socially open, with rights granted to use the content in new and exciting contexts" Ian Davis

Note:: points refer to a level of difficulty. You can also give yourself a self evaluation in regards to breadth of content on the basis of how many points you earn. Clearly, we want this to be a meaningful activity for you so if you want to explore a low point task area for a long period time - do it - enjoy yourself :D
Also - if you want to add a different angle to the 'essential question' you'll be responding to or a different question all together, we'll do what we can to accommodate...
