1) A one-sentence definition (understanding/perspectives/beliefs/opinions are also fine) on Web 2.0 by each group member (What do YOU think Web 2.0 is?).

Becky- Web 2.0 allows users to interact with other users or to change their website content.

Danielle- Web 2.0 allows groups to work collaboratively on the content of the site.

Kristen- Web 2.0 can be read just like any other site, it is a combination of a Word document and a Web site.

2) One superb example of educational uses of these new tools on Web 2.0 in K-12 setting. You will work as a team, search internet, find and view a lot of class wikis created by others for their elementary and middles school classes, and then choose one that your group think is the best. You need to identify the content area (social studies, science, math, language arts...) and the grade level of the wiki you find. You also need to include a short paragraph describing why your group thinks this is a "superb" example.

Techno Tigers

The example has a lot of colors, graphics and animations. It provides a lot of student resources such as math, language arts and science. It has a variety of content areas that are available on the wiki. The grade level of this wiki is fifth grade. There are many pictures of the students that help create the wiki, and there are also many student created pages on the wiki.

3) A collection of resources - a minimum of 3 links (it can also be articles, resources about wiki) - on educational use of wikis, that you can use in your own teaching later.
