Hauser, J. (February, 2007). Media specialists can learn web 2.0 tools to make schools
        more cool. Computers in Libraries, 27, Retrieved June 16, 2007, from

        b403-7cf2f5e6fd6a%40sessionmgr9.
        As part of her job, Hauser conducts professional development courses which train
library media specialists to use Web 2.0 tools. This article discusses some of the ways
media specialists can use blogs, wikis, podcasts and RSS feeds with their colleagues and
students. Hauser provides outlines of the content covered in each workshop; as well as
recommendations and cautions which she passes along to trainees. Also contained within
the article is a listing of free Web 2.0 resources.
        This article also provides information regarding how to deal with the blocks
which are imposed upon K-12 faculty, staff and students accessing the World Wide Web
via a school network.



Web 2.0
Maloney, E. J. (January, 2007). What web 2.0 can teach us about learning. Chronicle of
        Higher Education, 53, Retrieved June 16, 2007, from
        http://captgoro.blogspot.com/2007/03/what-web-20-can-teach-us-about-
        learning.html.
        In this article, Maloney discusses the need for the movement of higher
education’s course management or course delivery systems into a Web 2.0 frame of
mind. He explains that while the systems currently in use certainly serve their purpose
for “content delivery, evaluation, and communication” (Maloney, 2007), these systems
are built with a course in mind; rather than the student.
        Maloney explains that with Web 2.0 comes a focus on the students’ ability to
collaborate with peers in an environment with lends itself to more active participation by
the student.
        Also discussed in this article was the use of Digital Notebook by Georgetown
University as an online space for students to work, collaborate and store evidence of
learning until graduation.



Web 2.0
Bull, G., & Ferster, B. (2006). Ubiquitous complete in a web 2.0 world. Learning and
        Leading with Technology, 33, Retrieved June 16, 2007, from
        http://www.eric.ed.gov/ERICDocs/data/ericdocs2/content_storage_01/0000000b/
        80/32/76/a2.pdf.
        Bull and Ferster discuss the accessibility of PCs by student users, and how this
has changed in very recent years. The K-12 environment has not reached a point where
there is a one to one student to computer ratio, but the significant increase in accessibility
of computers to students outside of school has reached a point where students have access
to multiple computers at any given moment.
       The article also discusses how Web 2.0 applications make possible assignments
which were previously limited to the classroom to be worked on outside of school.
Before Web 2.0, teachers were forced to work with applications which were loaded on
school computers and limited to that location. With Web 2.0, applications are web-based
and the vast majority are free of charge.
