    I love how web 2.0 seems to draw you out of your seat, and into the world you are researching. As a visual learner this is engaging, rather than the old read and digest pages (good old encarta!).

  2. Erin says:

    Tag Galaxy… such a fan!!!

    • more animated / visually stimulating
    • Interactive – get to ‘do’ stuff
    • Links to more in depth information and additional aides
    • Degree of simplicity / user friendly
    • Organisers allow for greater creativity
    • Assists in making links between subjects
    • Easier to update – more ‘real time’
    • Faster!
    • Can get ‘closer’ – more ‘real’

    Web 2.0 is personal
    web 2.0 is open ended
    web 2.0 is more imediate/relevant to now

  6. Libby Moore says:

    The Word 2.0 tools are dynamic and intereting. They are rich in colour and movement.

  7. Paula says:

    3 differences between web 1.0 and 2.0:
    – 2.0 is a lot more interactive. As a user you are able to add info and update things very quickly
    – 2.0 can be real time updated. As a user you can interact with another user on the spot, no matter where they are.
    – 2.0 is open-ended, it is always evolving and always takes you to new information

  11. Michelle G says:

    Web 2.0 is more interactive, visually stimulating and often incorporates a range of resouces. You can contribute by adding your own resources or by tagging.

  12. Michelle says:

    The Web 2 tools are:
    Interactive
    Allow a larger amount of information to be made available
    More colourful and attractive
    Able to work online, save online and share online
    Dynamic

  13. Ruth says:

    Web 2.0 is more interactive and user friendly. It give more of the wow factor and really engages the researcher/user.

  14. Lara Di Fonzo says:

    Web 1 & Web 2 Comparison

    – Web 1 is informative
    – Web 2 is interactive

    – Web 1 utilises links, text and photos
    – Web 2 advances on Web 1, much more visual

    – Web 1 has basic sites
    – Web 2 has advances to multiple examples of information/communication programs and sites

  15. Michelle Dennis says:

    Web 2.0 websites provide simply a framework – the users are the authors of the content. It’s like a playground, with a slide, blocks and a sandbox – the children playing in it are the ones who decide what game to play, if to create a sand-castle or sand-monster, etc.

  16. Ilya says:

    Some great tools there. Am very interested in Pageflakes.

    Many of you may know this site already:
    https://www.go2web20.net/. It has a bewildering amount of web2 sites.

    I would like to know if anyone here uses Podcasts in their lessons or as homework.

  17. Vin Healy says:

    It seems to me the main difference between web 1 and web 2.0 is the level in which web 2.0 tools are interactive. Web 2.0 tools seem to have further links to blogs and wikis for points of discussion and feedback.

    Rather than being seen as a source of information or creativity web 2.0 tools allow for greater interaction and response from a wide gammit of users.

  18. David D says:

    Web 2 is interactive, allows *open* membership, encourages cooperation and comments, users publish directly into pages, upload information, files, images or videos etc.., One of the issues is that of privacy and legal requirements, particularly if kids are publishing photos or personal opinions online – as they might be subject to criticism or ridicule or they might even act to criticise teachers or schools – the options are endless!

  19. Kay McCullough says:

    I really like exploratree, it is interactive and allows users to create their own thinking templates. I suppose it it that quality of interactivity within the web page that distinguishes web 2 from web1 – where you sample from provided content.

  20. Natasha says:

    Web2 encourages interaction and feedback, draws together information from external or multiple sources, can provide opportunities for remote storage and is ever evolving.

  21. Pat Kenny says:

    More features and easier to navigate.
    Web 2.0 tools are more interactive.

    It allows for greater interaction between users. Visually stimulating.

    Love the Exploratree – can see real benefits for developing thinking skills and using graphic organisers.

  22. An interesting analysis – something I have often pondered.
    Obvious feature differences between Web1.0 to 2.0:
    •From Static to Dynamic
    •From Display to Collaborative
    •From Informative to Explorative
    •From Data to Analytical
    •From 2D to 3D
    •From Open ended to Purposeful
    •From Broad-based to Pedagogical
    •From individual input to dynamic collaboration

  23. Lisa Wilks-Beasy says:

    Web 2 is:
    -more social in nature than Web 1, often offering a response facility and the ability to interact back and forth
    – often more dynamic, multi-dimensional, visually stimulating
    – facilitates the user working in different modes of learning, a lot more choice and more than one style at a time

  24. Dave says:

    Interactive – allows the user to explore and find what THEY want to find, rather than the website dictating to them which parts are important.

  25. Steve says:

    Really liked the exploratree. Can’t wait to take it back and share. Very user friendly.

    Thought that pageflakes was great for the IWB. Looking forward to finding out more and seeing if it can be censored/changed for Junior School students.

  26. Mark Byrne says:

    Web 2 offers more visual interaction with pictures video etc rather than lots of words as with Web 1.0.
    Web 1.0 seems more linear with lists and filing cards while Web 2.0 is more organic with links in all directions.
    Interactivity is a feature of Web 2.0 where I can interact rather than just view.

  27. David R says:

    Web 2 is interactive, more social, more dynamic.
    Much more engaging, has the WOW factor
    Links in with other web 2 tools
    Love the Tag Galaxy- if only flickr wasn’t blocked @ plc!
