Web 2.0 tools/ applications are available online and have become prevalent telecommunication tools among the digital generations or so called Digital Natives (Prensky, 2001). American youth grow up embracing electronic communication devices and tools, such as the Internet, cell phones, online games and iPods; they are familiar with these digital tools and participating in the Web 2.0 environment for their personal needs and schoolwork (Lemke, Coughlin, Garcia, Reifsneider, & Baas, 2009). The utilization of Web 2.0 tools/ applications in K-12 schools is facilitating students in their academic learning and is an unavoidable trend. This study focuses on the investigation of the current use of the Web 2.0 tools/ applications in American public K-12 classrooms for learning the practical classroom situation.
