Web 2.0 New Possibilities for Education
Web 2.0 provides a expansive learning
world in which the Web is seen as a two-way
medium, where people are both readers and
writers. The main catalyst for this is social
software, allowing communication and
collaboration between two or more people.

Glogster EDU 2.0
  • The innovative characteristic of EDU 2.0 is
  • a shift to educational social networking in the
  • classroom and beyond.
  • Teachers and students share Glogs graphic
    elements, projects, and ideas. They are able to
    establish groups not only within a classroom or
    school but also within a state, region, or beyond
    and thus promote their work with a broad audience
    of educators and students. At the same time they
    are protected from inappropriate outside content
    because teachers securely administer accounts,
    groups and discussion boards.
