Abstract

Finding time for reflection and collaboration presents challenges for teachers. Combined with this are feelings of isolation from colleagues. Web 2.0 tools can assist in alleviating these difficulties for teachers. This chapter discusses the potential of Web 2.0 tools, the development and uses of these tools, and considerations to make when using Web 2.0 tools. The chapter also presents ways colleges of education can support reflection and collaboration while diminishing feelings of isolation. The experiences of one instructor in implementing Web 2.0 strategies in Master’s of School Administration classes are shared throughout the chapter to support the rationale for utilization of Web 2.0 tools.
