Evelyn: Web 2.0 is the term given to describe a second generation of the World Wide Web that is focused on the ability for people to collaborate and share information online.
Erin: I believe Web 2.0 is the updated version of the web that allows users to interact with the websites as opposed to just learning from the websites. It can be related to the change in classroom instruction that has moved from teacher centered lecturing to constructivist, student centered learning.
Danielle: I think the use of Web 2.0 in our classrooms in the future will be an extremely helpful tool to connect notes, discussions, and homework help with our students and give them educational places to explore on their own at their fingertips.

Paragraph on Wiki:
The links provided are to Mr. Driscoll's class wiki and also to Mr. Driscoll's ongoing collaborative project on the world regions. The integration area for the two wikis is history and geography. The wiki about the world regions project has pages for each of the regions of the world with topics such as geography, political organization, environmental issues, economic systems, regional conflicts, global interactions and other relevant information included about each region. The class wiki has resources, a calendar, discussion areas and student work posted. This wiki was the best one we found because along with all the information provided, the teacher also had contact information so that the students can get in touch with him multiple ways. We would take a lot of ideas from this wiki for our own classroom wiki such as the calendar and the posting of student work which would make them feel proud of all their efforts.
