Around the world, schools and their staff are becoming more aware of Web 2.0 tools that can help them integrate technology in their classroom curriculum. Two such are WizIq and Haiku which are based on e-learning and e-teaching, that integrate the web with classroom instruction .
These web based learning tools allow individual teachers to create and administer course content, assignments. Both students and teachers can easily collaborate through the system, exchanging messages and homework assignments.
Applications which allow chats, videos, slideshows, collaboration tools, file sharing, and etc., add more fun and interactive ways of facilitating communication and learning among staff, parents, and students. Wiziq & Haiku are the future of Social Learning 2.0 and beyond.
Wiz iq is very user friendly and I use it every chance I get. I love that you can give feedback as the facilitator about the session and WizIq automatically sends you an email trying to problem solve the trouble you might of experienced.
Haiku was user friendly, and I enjoyed its features. I felt like it was very similar to Wiki with more tools and resources.
I would recommend both sites to teachers and parents and students.
