Now the web user is also web content creator. Virtual interactions, collaboration, sharing of knowledge through web are the current trends that need to get exploited in education. Therefore, the Web2Learn project tries to familiarize adults (mainly parents but not exclusively) on current web 2.0 learning tools and practices so that to use them for creating better learning experiences for children and themselves and personal development. These facts became the crucial argument to form a list of web 2.0 good practices which were tested by the Web2Learn project team to make the target group familiarized with the tools within eight thematic groups. This effort resulted in 34 recommended good practices included in the chart below. The chart contains a logo, name, type and website of chosen tools. Detailed description of each tool is available when clicking on the name of the tool which works as a hypertext link. The tool descriptions are a part of Handbook of web 2.0 tools. logo tool type website AudioBoo Communication skills development www.audioboo.fm Blogger Professional e-portfolio www.blogger.com Clilstore Communication without barriers www.multidict.net Delicious Info management and sharing www.delicious.com Diigo Info management and sharing www.diigo.com Dropbox Effective collaboration www.dropbox.com Edmodo Info management and sharing www.edmodo.com Facebook Personal and professional networks www.facebook.com Fotobabble Communication skills development www.fotobabble.com GoAnimate Engaging presentations www.goanimate.com Google Alerts Info management and sharing www.google.com/alerts Google Docs Effective collaboration www.drive.google.com

The whole project cycle covers several phases which results in the final outcomes. The phases include choosing the wider range of tools, their testing at national level of every partner and selection of the most convenient ones for the target group according to proposed criteria. When working out the main objective of the project team according to the specification and the abovementioned aims, the following aspects were taken into consideration:  Does the tool have a real practical use for parents?  Does the tool have a real practical use for the target group in their professional or private life?  Does the tool have a real practical, educational use for children? The factors have a crucial impact on choosing the existing good practices set to help parents in the participating countries get familiarized on web 2.0 jargon and phrases used in web 2.0 children community as well as to establish stronger connections between parents, especially unemployed ones, and their children. This objective is closely connected with our effort to raise awareness on the benefits as well as precautions implied from web 2.0 learning to parental communities. 3 Conclusion The whole Web2Learn project team believes that all the final outcomes will help to familiarize the target group with web 2.0 tools and thus raise their competitive ability on the labour market. We have to bear in mind that the environment of web 2.0 tools is still in motion so it requires constant self-education related to this field. This material provides thorough information about those tools which are relevant and beneficial for your work. The Web2Learn project team
