Becta Schools - Becta report shows benefits of Web 2.0 in the classroom - 0 views

  • The reports found that young learners are prolific users of Web 2.0 technologies in their leisure time but that the use of Web 2.0 in the classroom was limited

  • the majority of teachers questioned had never used Web 2.0 applications in lesson
