Today’s web is not passive. Rather than being consumers of information, us­ers are active contributors, customizing media and technology for their own purposes. In this session you’ll learn about a variety of Web 2.0 tools and technologies and think about ways these can be used to foster 21st Century learning in your classrooms.
