Abstract

This brief study was conducted as part of a project in the effectiveness of innovative pedagogies conducted in a rural state high school in 2008. The project surveyed an entire cohort of 150 students in Year 9. The project survey collected information pertaining to uptake of, and attitudes to social networking tools and podcasting. In order to collect data, a survey was designed asking students to rate themselves on their ability to use tools such as wikis, online chats, blogging, online games, networking sites and electronic mail. Results showed that usage of some tools such as blogs and wikis was minimal. These outcomes provide the researchers with valuable insights into the potential for uptake of web 2.0 tools in the classroom
