In this book we are focusing on web 2.0 – 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 are already 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 textbook, academic work or a book that addresses the ICT skills curriculum, nor is it a book for ICT teachers or experts (although it could provide some inspiration to even the most confident amongst us!). It is designed to help every teacher to use e-learning methods and techniques to make their lessons more fun, more creative, easier to prepare and to encourage improved learner engagement.
