What does this mean: Web 2.0 ?

So now I begin to write about my experience with 21st-century skills. My learning about tech, as a teacher, for teaching.

For years I have done a not-too-bad job getting my students to move forward, to incorporate new tech skills. I have worked closely with colleagues who are specialists. To ensure my students were getting good training.

And now I want to learn more, for myself, as a  teacher and citizen.

===========================================================

I do not think anyone can assume that “Web 2.0”  makes sense to all teachers, I mean even just those 3 letters and 2 numbers put together.

I found a  good definition and lots more information here:

http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/Web-20-or-Web-2

The definition provided is good, I think, provided by WhatIs.com® :

“Web 2.0 is the current state of online technology as it compares to the early days of the Web, characterized by greater user interactivity and collaboration, more pervasive network connectivity and enhanced communication channels.”

========================================================

 

I joined classroom 2.0  Classroom 2.0 was started in March of 2007 by Steve Hargadon.  Over 84,000 members. Web 2.0, Social Media, and Participative Technologies in the classroom  I get notifications, invitations to online events. I have not taken advantage of much to date.
