Web 2.0 sites are not online places to visit so much as
           services to get something done,
              usually with other people.

Twitter is a Web 2.0 Tool
“A whole new Web is emerging from the wilds of
cyberspace.

It's no longer all about idly surfing and passively
reading, listening, or watching.

It's about doing: sharing, socializing, collaborating,
and, most of all creating.”

                                  It's A Whole New Web
                                  And this time around it will be built by you
                                  SEPTEMBER 26, 2005
Remember:
             Technology is just a tool.
              A good tool in the hands
       of a caring educator can work magic.
