"Welcome to TEACH WEB 2.0
We are a group of curious teachers who explore and brainstorm ways to integrate Web 2.0 technologies into our teaching.
Some of us meet face-to-face at an independent school in St. Petersburg, Florida. Some are University of Florida graduate students.
The rest of us are from all over the world.

Our mission:

Safely steer our students through Web 2.0 tools and =


  • Research Web 2.0 tools and social networking sites
  • Identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT)
  • Brainstorm effective, appropriate educational applications"
This seems to be a truly collaborative wiki.

Each link from the menu on the left goes to a page in the wiki with an assessment by an educator in the group. The pages I looked at provided the kind of detailed information that educators need to help them decide whether/how to use various tools in classrooms.
