Education in the Cloud with Web 2.0 tools: Web 2.0 List

Education in the Cloud with Web 2.0 tools: Web 2.0 List | Worthwhile Websites | Scoop.it

Here is a list of web 2.0 tools and other educational technology tools that I have previewed and many of them used in the classroom. Eventually I will do a tutorial and highlight most of these but in the meantime for those who are up to just exploring and figuring them out yourselves, then have at it and enjoy.
