Like the variety of Web 2.0 applications, theories of learning and instructional models are also primarily content independent. So it is left up to the teacher educator to match learner characteristics, content, pedagogy and technologies. This presentation will concentrate on the use of Web 2.0 technologies in contemporary constructivist and cognitivist learning environments. We will present the characteristics of Web 2.0 tools to support teaching and learning, including low threshold applications, a variety of tools and models, as well as access to tools and knowledge. Finally, we will identify the limitations and challenges that exist with using these tools, such as immature applications, longevity of applications, number of applications, unconsolidated services and security and ethics.

Low Threshold Applications 14. Low threshold applications are:a) easy to learn by teachers and students,b) not intimidating to require re-examination ofteaching practices,c) Simple enough to require little technical training,d) almost ubiquitous.

The technologies that are chosen should bea) Those that afford a variety of technical skilllevels among students,b) Those that allow for the construction andsharing of learning products.

Some end users like it (and some love it),but professionals who built a lifetime of skills aroundthe old technology are very suspicious, oftenundermining it. Even the advocates admit thetechnology often has to be cajoled intoworking.Invariably, people just did not realize howhard it was to pull off. What seemed easy andobvious is in fact quite daunting.
