I have recently viewed an excellent video “The State of Wikipedia” produced by Jess3.com. Wikipedia just celebrated its 10th anniversary with a collection of more than 17 million articles in over 270 languages.

Today, over 3,000 of the Web 2.0 applications and services are available on the Web and many of them have great potentials in teaching and learning. The image link shown below was a presentation I delivered at the 2011 TxDLA 14th Conference in San Antonio two weeks ago. This presentation offers a list of 15 of the best Web 2.0 applications for teachers. These Web 2.0 tools are free and valuable to teachers and students.
