  • Right now, we have at our fingertips a suite of Web 2.0 tools that can connect us to people and information around the world. Students and adults use Web 2.0 to communicate, stay in touch and do their work in their daily lives. We’re excited about Web 2.0 because it can help us support our top educational priorities for learning.
