I see this term everywhere, and I understand what it means, but something prompted me to do a little research this weekend. I found this article, this one, this one, and of course the Wikipedia entry. Although not all of them are entirely enthusiastic about the term Web 2.0 (and they focus more on the business side than education), I enjoyed reading all the different descriptions and examples of Web 2.0 vs. 1.0. My favorite quote is from the first article though: “Technology without participation is not in the spirit of the next generation web.” I think that pretty much sums the concept up in a nutshell.
