Beneficial Web 2.0 Tools to Engage Learners and Maximize Learning
DiBella, Karen S.; Williams, Kimberly G.
Journal of Learning in Higher Education, v11 n2 p75-81 Fall 2015
Technology has certainly altered the landscape in which students learn today. The use of technology in today's classrooms is continually increasing as educators seek ways to engage learners and maximize learning potential. Incorporating Web 2.0 tools into the classroom can not only encourage collaboration among learners, but also provide a way for students to apply their knowledge. For such benefits to be gained, the Web 2.0 tools must be relevant and purposeful. In this study, researchers surveyed pre-service teachers at one institution of higher learning, whom took classes that integrated several Web 2.0 tools into the curriculum, and sought which instructional tools pre-service teachers found most beneficial, and hence, are more likely to use in their future classrooms.
