What is this Wiki about?

sowebedu is the short form of “Social Web in Education” and refers to the usage of Social Software and Web2.0 for teaching and learning. This wiki is created for the Share.TEC pilot Social Software and Web2.0 in Teacher Education and Teacher Training. It provides a platform for a community of practice for exploring and analysing the usage of Social Software and Web2.0 tools and services under real educational conditions. This Wiki is for documenting our work, collecting resources, discussing pilot related issues, sharing information, and publishing the results of our Share.TEC pilot.
