Also known as the read/write or participatory Web, Web 2.0 includes such tools as blogs, podcasts, forums, wikis and social networks. It gives users the ability to take in information and create, organize and connect with others interested in the same topics. Web 2.0 is revolutionizing education because students and educators can easily and cost-effectively receive and create information and interact with each other. In this article, the author discusses the applications of Web 2.0 for education professionals and in the classrooms. She suggests that educators should guide and instruct students how to use the Web wisely for their own safety and success. She offers tips on what a person should do when a Web site, blog, wiki or podcast he wants to access is blocked on his school's computers. (Contains 4 online resources.)
