Web 2.0 and EFL and ESL teachers
This is a video by Nik Peachey explaining what web 2.0 is all about and how it can be useful to EFL and ESL teachers.
He first starts by presenting what was the internet like before web 2.0 and then he shows how the internet is now a richer and more powerful tool at the hand of both teachers and students, enabling them to connect and share information in an unprecedented way.
Concerns about using web 2.0 tools
Nik Peachey also presents the dark side of web 2.0 . These are concerns about:
- credibility and quality of the content on the internet
- how the internet companies ar financed
Nik Peachey believes that these concerns mustn’t be an excuse for not using web 2.0. Compared to what teachers and students will get from the internet, these concerns are nothing.
