Interconnectedness for everyone!
Web 2.0 is the term that encompasses the growing collection of new and emerging Web-based tools. Many
are free and available to everyone. The shift to Web 2.0 tools can have a profound effect on schools and
learning, causing a transformation in thinking. These tools promote creativity, collaboration, and
communication involving learning methods in which these skills play a part. When students collaborate on a
project and present what they’ve learned, they develop critical thinking and organizational skills.
Educators can take advantage of the features these tools offer and tap
into students’ natural affinity for these tools in order to create
learning experiences that expand their worldview and enhance what
they learn. Students can dig deeper to find information that stretches
their ability to reason and analyze. Features are interconnectedness,
immediacy, interactivity, communications, and community. These
are the very features that keep global businesses competitive and
workers in jobs. Only by learning in this manner and using these
tools, will students be prepared with 21st-century skills.
