Hey Joseph! Welcome! Web 2.0 is a term used to refer to all of the collaborative Internet-based tools available on the web. Websites like Skype, Blogger, Wikipages, Storybird,, Delicious, Facebook, Google Earth, Google Books, Google Scholar, - I can't really scratch the surface here... All of these tools can be integrated into what we do with students every day! You have found a great place to find out just how librarians are doing this - If you read what our fellow educators have posted here, you will find a wealth of ideas and people to collaborate with!

Actually, I have heared about it, but you may have to give me a detail information about web 2.0 and how it works in the library.

Hi all,
We are just starting back to school next week after our summer holidays. I'm really interested in your website and 'quest' Katharine. Could you explain a little more about why you created it and how it has been introduced to your students? Thanks

We recently gave our book fair a Web 2.0 twist! The Cat Bookler and the Mystery of the Missing Mysteries utilizes Weebly, Animoto, Voki, Vuvox and Shelfari tools to make one fun event! Please take a look and comment on our blog!

Your mock Newbery blog looks awesome - not only is it a vehicle for students to post their comments, but it is a great reader's advisory tool. Thanks for sharing!

Stephanie, I heard Chris Harris say "Anything that's blocked can be unblocked." And I've never forgotten it. If you come up with a really good project for blogging (or any other tool) you might be able to persuade them to unblock some of the tools. Maybe start with some book reviews...? or book trailers? Just a thought.

I'm glad to hear about all of your class blogging and suggestions. It's nice to know there are schools out there that are not afraid of technology. My district has everything with blogging capability blocked including articles in the local newspapers. So much for current events assignments.
You guys rock!

I just read about a blogging tool for teachers and students based on Wordpress called Eduperience. Read more about it here: It sounds great!

Has anyone heard of I'm not sure if its a newsite or not? Teachers can set up classroom accts and monitor each students individual blog. I'm not sure if you can embed code.
Thanks for the help so far. I love this site!!

I have mostly been using wordpress as it gives you the option of creating pages which gives it a website like feel. But unless you host it on your own server it is definitely not embed freindly -and learners love to embed stuff. So Blogger is a great choice as it comes automatically with a google account. I feel all our learners hould ahve a google account- gives them so much choices in web 2 applications (gmail,googledocs,claenders,picassa) and they all work together.

Edublogs is of course GREAT. It has a wordpress engine but because it is hosted on the edublogs server, it allows for all creative embeds!
