Web 2.0 sites allow your students to interact with each other by creating and sharing content on the web. 

Integrating Web 2.0 tools keeps students engaged by default because it requires interaction.


 

What is Web 2.0 and why should I care?

Web 2.0 is a concept that takes the network as a platform for information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design, and collaboration on the World Wide Web. A Web 2.0 site allows users to interact and collaborate with each other in a social media dialogue as creators (prosumers) of user-generated content in a virtual community, in contrast to websites where users (consumers) are limited to the passive viewing of content that was created for them. Examples of Web 2.0 include social networking sites, blogs, wikis, video sharing sites, hosted services, web applications, mashups and folksonomies.
