School is an important part of every student’s life. Here they start their education career, learn from basics, learn etiquette, learn new technologies, learn methodologies, develop their thought process and get ready for the higher education and outer world. So it becomes very important that our school curriculum should be up to date, methodologies should be latest, technology and way of teaching should keep on improving, so that students should be aware of all the new developments in the market. Web 2.0 describes the new and the latest trends in the world of web technology. It refers to the current scenario of online technology where users can interact with others, share their knowledge with others and at the same time get their knowledge too.

They can access information anytime and anywhere they want. This has led to development of many such tool blogs, podcast, social networking sites, portfolio etc. Let us look at some of them. Blogs are basically a personal journal that covers views and opinions on various topics which helps one to share and get massive information on anything and knowledge is not confined to just books. Podcast is another web2.0 technology that is an audio or video file. Now what has made podcasts so famous is “pod caster” that will automatically deliver new podcast released to its subscribers.

Teachers can use it to record lessons and students can listen to them whenever required. It can also be used as guest speaker and will help students. Social networking and video sharing websites such as Facebook, YouTube etc. can also be used for teaching and knowledge sharing purpose.
