There are a number of web 2.0 applications that are becoming common in educational settings. Blogs and wikis are becoming relativley commonplace and at my high school we have collaborated with teachers and students to have some classes create wikis for their reports and they have used other applications such as wordle and animoto to enliven their reports. The following link will open to a very interesting and elcectic list of wikis being used by educators. Take a look!
The following links are for new applications that educators might use.
Maybe some of these can be of use in your wikis or blogs. The students will love them!
