Top 10 Web2.0 Tools

The oz- teachers mailing list has a current discussion thread on the top ICT tools used in education. First, as I am a great fan of eLearning here is a list of my current top 10 web 2.0 tools. Please note that they are not in any particular ranking order.

  1. Wordle – word cloud creator used for effective images, summaries, introductions to key concepts, reflections etc.
  2. Blogs – teacher blog, class blog, student blogs
  3. Skype – videoconferencing, teaching virtual students using video, chat, screen sharing, sending files etc
  4. Wikis – I like wikispaces Senior students develop their digital portfolios on a wiki, used for global projects etc
  5. wallwisher – sticky notes on a wall, collaborative, user friendly, students do not require a logon, just the link Used for brainstorming, reflections, collaboration,  introductions etc
  6. Voicethread – online podcasting, collaborative, userfriendly, enables images, editing at any time etc
  7. Google applications – document, sheet, sites, maps etc
  8. – simplistic mind mapping, collaborative, user friendly
  9. Dropbox –  storage in the clouds, easy sharing
  10. Elluminate – web conferencing Powerful tool for Professional Development and Classroom use with students

What are your favourite online tools? What would you change or what would you add?

  1. Wordle is nice, but Tagxedo is much better for a variety of reasons.
    I would say is like Wallwisher, but perhaps better.

  2. It is hard to imagine going back to a world without these isn’t it?

  3. Can anyone tell me how to build application using web2.0?what are the prerequisit?
