Welcome to K12 Webware
This wiki contains a selection of Webware (Web 2.0, Read/Write Web) tools, examples and application ideas suitable for K-12 education. It was created to encourage and support the use of Web 2.0 tools for teaching and learning at Woodward Academy.
What is Webware?
is one name for the growing collection of productivity, data-driven, and communications tools available on the web. These “
” tools allow users to create, edit, publish and share content without any special technical knowledge or software.
tools create a “
” environment that encourages all users to contribute content, as opposed to the typical “Read-Only” experience of the traditional Web. Many
tools are collaborative and can be used in creative, meaningful ways by K-12 teachers and students.
This website is a work-in-progress. Please email
if you have questions or suggestions.
