Preferred Web 2.0 Tools

About 1/3 of the way into the semester in my eMedia course, I ask students to complete a discussion about their favorite tools so far. Why this Web 2.0 platform?

Usually the results skew heavily towards Pinterest. Students cite the wealth of lesson plans, handouts, printables, classroom decoration ideas, and professional attire as their reasons for loving the site. As one exclaims, it has “the answer to EVERYTHING.” 56% of the respondents chose Pinterest.

This time around, Twitter made an admirable showing, however, with 33% of the total. “It allows you to reach thousands if not millions of people,” one student explains.
