I am all about FREE STUFF, so I love open source, web 2.0 tools. This is a nice graphic that displays some of the ways Web 2.0 has changed the way we teach and learn.
What is Web 2.0?
The internet viewed as a medium in which interactive experience, in the form of blogs, wikis, forums, etc, plays a more important role that simply accessing information.
(For those wanting to delve deeper,
has a much longer and more detailed explanation of its origin.)
From Spartan Guides, Joyce Valenza
BLOGGING on WIKISPACES (just like this one!)
Don't be afraid to just jump in and start creating a wiki. it's easy to learn as you go and you can keep it private until you're ready to share. I've used this for literature circle blogging, to track a child that I'm tutoring this summer, and also have access to or subscribed to wikis through conferences of talks just like Mark's.

Glogster is a multimedia online poster creation tool. Glogster posters, or Glogs, are a wonderful way of encouraging reading, writing, speaking and creativity using technology. Students are excited about and enjoy using this program, as it allows a lot of room for creativity. Glogster isn't perfect and can be plagued by small problems such as losing work when Glogs haven’t saved properly but Glogster EDU has alleviated many of these issues.
This Glog is for the classic book, Peter Pan
Here is another Glog for Around the World in 80 days
And this Glog was done by a younger student who was very interested in what his classmates were doing, so he made this at home about his favorite movies then proudly showed me the next day.......
