Tools and Tactics

We consider this the more "applied" area of this site. Here we discuss:

1. tools - the application categories commonly associated with the participatory web, and
2. tactics - ideas for applying each application in and out of the classroom.

Our plan is to begin with what are now the most common applications (e.g., blogs, podcasts, wikis) and add additional tools as our time allows and trends we observe require.

    Tactics - Blog

Recently, familiar desktop applications have been retooled to work in an online environment. Many of these tools are also suited to participatory activities.
