This book aims to deal with the use of web 2.0 tools across the humanities. This means we are focusing on social software and applications that allow learners to create, share and publish content on line rather than simply being passive consumers of on line content. We are assuming that most teachers will already be using the web as a resource – possibly employing web-based research activities as part of their normal lessons – which we call web 1.0.
Be warned, this is not a text-book, academic work or a book that addresses the ICT skills curriculum, nor is it a book for ICT teachers or experts (although it may provide some inspiration for even the most confident amongst us!). It is designed to help every teacher get started on using e-learning methods and techniques across the humanities to make their lessons more fun, more creative, easier to prepare and to improve learner engagement.
