Some New Web 2.0 Tools for the Classroom

imageWe are all aware of the benefits of the collaborative web tools like blogging, social media, podcasting but I have been looking for some new Web 2.0 tools that I think teachers would find useful. I discovered quite a few but I will save some for future postings – I don’t want to overload your creativity!!Here are a few I think you should investigate – all free of course!

For all you Google Apps for Education fans – Aviary Design Suite – as the blurb states –
