Young learners are prolific users of these
technologies (wikis, blogs and social networking)
but the use of Web 2.0 in the classroom is still
limited.



Teachers believe that Web 2.0 resources should be
used more often in the classroom.



Main concern is lack of time to familiarize
themselves with the technology and worries about
managing the use of the internet in class.
