"Web 2.0" is a concept that is connected with a number of web applications that allow everybody to use the Web as a platform to interact and communicate in a personal and dynamic way: expressing opinions in blogs, sharing all kind of documents like pictures, podcasts or videos, creating personal spaces easily, collaborating through wikis and other similar applications, etc.

Language teachers and students can also take advantage of these social applications and on this page I will collect several examples of this pedagogical use and also a list of useful links. Some may be in other languages: Spanish, French, etc.

If you are experimenting with this Web 2.0 technologies let me know about your project or whatever you call it.

Si estáis haciendo experiencias en inglés, francés u otras lenguas podéis comunicármelo, me alegrará conocerlo.
