Objective 12 - A Whopping Wealth of Web 2.0

Of the listed Web 2.0 tools in Thing 12, I have used several: Gliffy, Glogster EDU, SlideShare, Weebly, and Wordle. I played and explored many of the others: MixBook, Picnik, Pikistrips, PollDaddy, Quizlet, Ta-da List, Timetoast, ToonDoo, and Writeboard. There are other Web 2.0 tools that I have used that are not a part of this list:

  • Diigo - Diigo is a social bookmarking website. It allows users to highlight any part of a webpage and attach sticky notes to specific highlights or to a whole page.
  • Doodle - Doodle helps scheduling meetings and other appointments. Doodle is simple, quick, free, and requires no registration.
  • iKeepBookmarks – iKeepBookmarks is a web-based bookmarks manager.
  • jott – Jott’s voice-to-text services let you capture thoughts & reminders, send emails & text messages.
  • Line Rider - Line Rider is a fun online game where you draw tracks and ride the lines.
  • mosaickr - mosaickr is an online service which allows creating great looking mosaics from flickr photos, download them or even print them on posters.
  • My50 – My50 allows you to create a list of things that you wish to do in your lifetime, set deadlines, add pictures and descriptions, read our suggestions and other peoples lists.
  • Prezi - Prezi is a zooming presentation editor.
  • Protopage - Protopage is a free RSS news reader and start page.
  • rockyou - is a social media site that allows photo sharing by adding music in slideshow format.
  • Thumbstacks - Thumbstacks is a bare bones but functional application that allows users to build presentations online and present them via a permanent URL.
  • Vyew - Vyew is a live collaboration and web conferencing tool.
  • Wetpaint - Wetpaint is a web page that a group can edit together.

One of new favorite Web 2.0 tools is JigZone. Completing the digital jigsaw puzzles allows me a few moments to forget what I actually should be doing and relax doing something I really enjoy – jigsaw puzzles.


  1. Good list! I added Doodle to Thing 12 because it's just so darn useful.

  2. One word- overachiever! :) As you know, I use protopage for my webpage at school. I love the widgets and how easy it is to use. It reminds me a lot of pageflakes. You can even make pages public and some private.

  3. Thanks for the great list and descriptions. This is really helpful.
