We want to take you on a Learning Odyssey where you will acquire the skills to carefully navigate through the sea of available web 2.0 tools. You will learn how to resist the seemingly irresistible allure of web 2.0 tools and how to strategically plan to use the tools as a means to achieve the required learning outcomes in your educational context. Our Learning Odyssey will focus on the creation of activities that stimulate the acquisition of the key pillars of the 21st century teaching and learning.
