Web 2.0 tools

In the olden days we had 'Web 1.0'. Information was 'out there' and we accessed it using our web browser. Nowadays when we use the internet we expect to be more involved. We create information and post it, to be shared with others. There are online tools to help us create content. Some of these are better than others. Some are free to use, others require a free registration, yet more ask for a subscription. This process of using the internet to create and share information is characteristic of a new age in internet use, and is called 'Web 2.0'. To save you the trouble of searching for 'Web 2.0' tools to use in school there is a wiki where a directory of resources has been collected. I'll be trying some out over the next few weeks, but if you'd like to dig around yourself then here's the link.
