Since the introduction of computers into education in the 1960s their potential for education has been recognized by researchers, policymakers and practitioners. However, the rapid and seemingly constant evolution of digital technology means that teachers face the problems of keeping pace with the technological changes within society, identifying which technologies are most suitable for use within education and adapting or creating pedagogies that suit these technologies. One technology that has significantly impacted education is the Internet and, more recently, the recent emergence of Web 2.0 technologies. This paper presents the results of a teacher evaluation into the use of Web 2.0 technologies undertaken as part of a European project that aims to provide teachers with a simple to use Web 2.0 platform, a supporting pedagogy for Web 2.0 and a training package for teachers and teacher trainers.
