Wiki Wednesday #4 - Web 2.0 Guru
Nominated for a 2009 Edublog Award for Best Educational Wiki, the Web 2.0 Guru is a great Wiki for finding Web 2.0 tools as well as some information and explanation of each resource. You can find resources by subject matter, best practices, hardware, software, cyber-citizenship and others. You can also find links to other blogs related to technology integration and education. The author, Chery Capozzoli believes in the power of Web 2.0 so much that she has developed a term for the study of Web 2.0, Web2.0logy.
What I like best about the Wiki is that it is organized very well and that links to the resources you might be looking for are easy to find. I also like the section on The Three R's. This is an area that we are working hard and looking to improve in our district because of the movement of Internet use by such a younger generation of students and children.
Another good aspect of this Wiki is that it is not all about resources. It is also about information and articles pertaining to the changing of education as we enter the 21st Century. There is lots of vital information on this Wiki, and I highly recommend that you take a look and see what you can find that is of use. But if you are just looking for Web 2.0 resources, then here is where to look.
