  33. 33. 10 Web 2.0 Ways Stephen Downes 1. Listen to a conference presentation - K-12 Online Conference 2. Record your own audio or video presentation 3. Do a search on a topic of interest but don’t just use Google – use Google Blog Search, Google News Search, Delicious, Technorati, Slideshare, and Youtube. 4.
