Web 2.0 for teachers


If you're a buzzword addict, then no doubt you are already reading a lot about web 2.0. Web 2.0 is rather hard to explain for those who don't know, but basically it implies easy to use, highly interactive, user-content driven web services. I recently held a workshop for the UNESCO SchoolNet project where I met the SchoolNet evaluation consultant Chris Smith, who is also a web 2.0 fanatic. He has worked with a team of other consultants to put together a useful and thorough guide to web 2.0 for teachers, called "Coming of Age".

Download the full guide.

Thanks for the kind mention of the "Coming of Age" booklet .. hope it's useful.

Reader might also find one of my dedicated web 2.0 webpage helpful .. designed to have a 'teaching and learning' emphasis.

... and "Yes" I'm very very enthusiastic about the opportunities that web 2.0 is offering teachers and students.

Have fun ...
