The term Web 2.0 was coined by O’Reilly Media in 2003 and is now widely used in a collective sense to describe these technologies (O’Reilly, 2005). What we see in the Web evolution is an emphasis on collective knowledge over static information. The second generation Web – blogs, wikis, social networks, podcasts, social networks, newsfeeds, and so on – all encourage a more active, participatory role for users (Maloney, 2007). The author will lead informal discussions on how to take advantages of available Web 2.0 technologies into teaching/learning environments. Specific topics will focus on web blogs and podcasts. Instructional strategies and procedures of using Web 2.0 technologies in teaching arts, 8th grade mathematics and Spanish will be shared and discussed.
