Web 2.0 A Web 2.0 site allows users to interact and collaborate with each other in a social media dialogue as creators (prosumers) of user-generated content in a virtual community, in contrast to websites where users (consumers) are limited to the passive viewing of content that was created for them. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Education
  30. 30. Education The word education is derived from educare (Latin) &quot;bring up&quot;, which is related to educere &quot;bring out&quot;, &quot;bring forth what is within&quot;, &quot;bring out potential&quot; and ducere, &quot;to lead&quot;. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Education
  31. 31.
