50 Web 2.0 Sites for Schools

David Kapuler is an educational consultant with more than 10 years of experience working in the K-12 environment.

Recently I’ve been experimenting with a number of curation sites that are beneficial for creating and sharing lists. While exploring these tools, I’ve been “fine tuning” my Web 2.0 list for schools. I created a list of 25 Web 2.0 sites for education over a year ago — but a lot has changed since then. More sites have been developed and more tools are available to students and educators than ever before.This list is in alphabetical order.
