An article that I found on the internet about what is web2.0  

Web 1.0

  Web 2.0
DoubleClick –> Google AdSense
Ofoto –> Flickr
Akamai –> BitTorrent –> Napster
Britannica Online –> Wikipedia
personal websites –> blogging
evite –> and EVDB
domain name speculation –> search engine optimization
page views –> cost per click
screen scraping –> web services
publishing –> participation
content management systems –> wikis
directories (taxonomy) –> tagging (“folksonomy”)
stickiness –> syndication

Here is table showing the difference between web1.0 and web2.0. Another article I found is ‘using wiki in the classroom’ It has become evident that many teachers are starting to show interest in using some sort of web2.0 in their classroom. Using wiki in the classroom may be hard for some to master. This site has video tutorials on how to use wiki and you can go through it at your own pace. Teachers in the classroom could assign homework for their students to go onto the site and learn how to use a wiki at their own pace. The article also mentions then fact that many educators are questioning if the industrial age institutions we work in are ready for the kids of the digital communication revolution.
