Many researchers see Web 2.0 technologies as having the potential to transform e-learning and traditional teaching methods. Significant attention has been paid to the evaluation of some of the Web 2.0 tools in education, however an accepted pedagogical model has yet to emerge. Web 2.0 technologies have become an essential part of student lives, now educators are turning to them in search of more effective teaching strategies. This paper describes some of the popular Web 2.0 technologies in use in education and highlights their pedagogical value. We draw attention to the implications of the use of these tools applied in learning and teaching, and the factors and barriers that influence their successful adoption.
