    Abstract

    :

    Just as pen, paper, scissors, glue, crayons, construction paper, typewriter and watercolors were some of the tools many of us used to produce reports and share what we were learning, blogs, wikis, photo sharing sites, podcasts and other new online resources are the tools of today’s students. And just as we had to learn to cut, to color, to use cursive writing, our students must learn how to use these new tools. That means we must use the tools, evaluate their usefulness, and teach students to use them effectively as well. It is the teachers and teacher educators who must embrace these new digital tools— hopefully, leading the way as we have in other areas of technology in the past. While early websites were passive—that is one could read information from the page, but couldn’t add to the information or change it in any way. This paper will focus on the newer tools that are commonly called Web 2.0   tools because they allow for much interactivity and user created content. It is said that Web 1.0 was about locating information, and Web 2.0 is about using websites as application software much as one uses MSWord or PowerPoint or other software on our computer. Web 2.0 sites allow one to read and write. In addition, most Web 2.0 sites offer the opportunity to share and/or collaborate on the work. Web 2.0 tools provide digital equity, too, providing knowledge about tools students and teachers can use outside of school. This paper discusses some web 2 tools and how they can be used in teaching and learning process. Actually the list of web 2 tools is endless; however here only the important ones are given.
