    What is Web 2.0?
    According to Wikipedia, perhaps the most widely used example of Web 2.0, "Web 2.0 is a term describing the trend in the use of World Wide Web technology and web design that aims to enhance creativity, information sharing, and, most notably, collaboration among users." The Internet has progressed beyond just an "information superhighway" and become a social platform for sharing, creating and collaborating. Web design, once a complicated process, has been greatly simplified as Web 2.0 tools make it fast and easy for almost anyone with basic computer knowledge to create, maintain and contribute to a website. These tools are taking education in exciting new directions as teachers explore their potential. Students can now use web tools to create and collaborate on multimedia projects, discuss classroom topics beyond classroom walls, and even connect with the global community to solve problems and answer questions.
    Social Networking and Wikis
    Students are already using this type of technology if they have a Myspace or a Facebook page. These websites allow users to upload music, pictures, videos and other file types. They can also make their site available to anyone online and create a network of "friends" that can communicate any time and anywhere. For educators, the value of social networking goes well beyond "chatting" and making new friends. It provides a platform for collaboration and cooperative learning that extends outside the classroom setting and into student homes.
