  • Web 1.0 is when the web was static. It was a provider of information. Similar to some our classrooms. It was oneway. We’d go to a website find information, play a game, etc.. It was also very technical. In order to create a publish a web page required a learning curve that many would rather leave to experts.
  • Web 2.0 encourages interaction. Technical ability is not an issues as many of the tools have features that allow novice computers users to get started right away with minimal effort and minimal time. Web users are encouraged to interact, collaborate, and share information. We’ll get a little more into this aspect especially when we look at blogs and wikis. But if you simply think of sites like YouTube where you can find a video of almost anything or facebook where you can interact with friends you haven&apos;t seen or heard from in the past twenty years it’s simple remarkable what has happened with the emergence of Web 2.0
