Web 2.0 Concepts, Theory, Uses, and Research – What is E-Learning 2.0? What are Web 2.0 tools? What is social bookmarking and how can students use it as a learning tool and an academic resource?

Educational Wikis and Blogs – Blogs, wikis, and other interactive tools are the major educational social interaction tools of the Web 2.0–or as Will Richardson, author of Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms calls it, the “Read-Write Web,” because everyone is encouraged to participate and not simply read, but also write! Information and samples of these are in this folder. Also included is a link to Blogs@Baruch, which includes terrific “How-Tos” and descriptions of “best practices” of Web 2.0 pedagogical applications and discussions of new technologies to watch for (and their implications for teaching and learning).

Web 2.0 Tools and Resources – Inside this folder are descriptions of and links to dozens of new social interaction, social bookmarking, and other kinds of tools currently being used for learning and teaching .

Blogs about Education and Technology – Most of these blogs are written by directors of Instructional Computing units at colleges and universities; many discuss the pros and cons of emerging technologies for teaching and learning.
