Thing #5 The Blogging Web 2.0 Apps

The first thing i had to do for thing #5 is find out what is meant by Web 2.0, which
Richard MacManus defines as "Web 2.0 is everyday, non-technical people using the Web to enhance their lives and businesses. The fact that so many people are now creating and building on the Web is what the '2.0' signifies" in his article posted on  School 2.0 to me is something as a teacher candidate excites me, getting the technology in the classroom and having the students reinforce the learning through Web 2.0 applications to me creates a more effective classroom. Lets face it every child in today's society seems to be born with a smart phone in one hand and an tablet computer in their other. Using these devices for more then texting and social media with friends but to educate students in and out of the classroom is the future of education.

  1. I agree with you that School 2.0 is the future of education. The truth is that it is almost impossible to keep up with all the new stuff that's out there. But I'm glad you're excited about it. That means you're one step closer than before!
