What is Web 2.0? Wikipedia defines it like this:

Web 2.0 is a loosely defined intersection of web application features that facilitate participatory information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design, and collaboration on the World Wide Web. A Web 2.0 site allows users to interact and collaborate with each other in a social media dialogue as creators (prosumers) of user-generated content in a virtual community, in contrast to websites where users (consumers) are limited to the passive viewing of content that was created for them. Examples of Web 2.0 include social networking sites, blogs, wikis, video sharing sites, hosted services, web applications, mashups and folksonomies (tagging).

How do we use it in the classroom?

We see the world as our classroom, and we use tools such as Skype, blogs, and Edmodo to reach out to others. For the last several school years, our classroom created collaborative projects with schools around the world using wikis, Skype, and other online tools.

During the 2012-2013 school year, our classroom participated in the Flat Classroom K-2 pilot program called "Building Bridges to Tomorrow. Learn more here.
