Web 2.0 for the classroom What is it? Tools Benefits Disadvantages The term Web 2.0 is commonly associated with web applications that facilitate interactive information sharing, user-centered design and collaboration on the World Wide Web.

A Web 2.0 site gives its users the free choice to interact or collaborate with each other in a social media dialogue as creators in a virtual community. In contrast, traditional websites are where users are limited to the passive viewing of content that was created for them. Cost: The cost a computers for every child is very high. This a disadvantage for schools that do not have the facilities or resources to accommodate for this. Privacy: Some web 2.0 websites do not have the capacity to accomodate for private use by children. Before introducing children to the site it is always best to view the Company's privacy statement and how they cater for education and classroom use. internet connection drop out

This new model is based on enhanced communication and collaboration tools and services, information sharing, and interoperability. ' Teachers need to understand the rapid change in student activity, communication and learning. Sendall et al (2008) states, '...the importance of Web 2.0 tools such as Blogs, wikis, social networking and other collaborative tools are changing the way we communicate in society. Knowledge of these skills is critical for today’s information technology student as they enter the workforce. In addition they are a significant evolution in information exchange for all ages and groups in society.' Why use 2.0 in
the classroom? 'These tools will allow us to see the start of a radical evolution in education that will bring such dramatic changes that we'll soon be at a point where we won't be able to imagine education without them.'

to dramatically alter the
21st century landscape
in education, shaping
how students approach
learning , how educators
approach teaching , and,
increasingly, how educators are interacting with, and learning rom, each other.'
