Question 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?)...

Question 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...

//Superb Wiki Example!//
One superb example of educational uses of these new tools on Web 2.0 is a wiki that has been created of Mrs. Abernethy's 5th grade class. The content areas included in this wiki are Social Studies, Science, Math, English, and Language Arts. As a group we decided this was a great example of a wiki because of all the content that was provided. They included many great and useful links on the left hand navitgation that spanned a wide array of content areas. It is evident by all the animations, pictures, and colors that this group put much time and effort into their wiki!
