I just posted a list of the web 2.0 tools and how I used them on my blog. http://evasimkesyan.edublogs.org/ and later I found out PinDax, an online message board creator with colorful post-it note options and I prepared a noticeboard with the tools I've used so far.http://www.pindax.com/myboard If you add the ones that you like to use, I'll be very happy.
