    "Classroom 2.0 is a free, community-supported network. We especially hope that those who are "beginners" will find this a supportive comfortable place to start being part of the digital dialog. " While this isn't is a Web 2.0 tool, it looks like it might be a helpful group for beginners like me. Living in Laos, I like how international the group looks. Does anyone else have suggestions of this kind of support group for beginners?

    Resources like Classroom 2.0 are what a lot of my "beginners" would benefit from.
