Brief Project Description:
This project was developed for the following reasons:
- To get students to examine, explore, and investigate various types of Web 2.0 technologies, as well as discover ways to use those tools to enhance teaching and learning.
- To have students work on a real-world, team-based problem where they need to develop skills of communication and cooperation in order to create and deliver the needed wiki repository outcome.
- To have students gain a more global perspective, by including team members from universities around the world.
- To develop a practical tool that helps anyone at any time and location review, compare, and select effective Web 2.0 tools.

Hi! My name is David Vahlund. I am currently studying to become a teacher of Swedish and English. My main interests are music, video games, fishing, skiing and golf. I am 21 years old. I was born in a city called Gävle and i study at Umeå University in, you guessed it, Umeå. I am the guy on the right in the, unnecessarily large picture below. The rather cool looking guy to the left is my younger brother.
Hello! My name is Mikael Strålberg and like David I'm studying to become an English teacher but I havn't really decided on my second subject yet. I'm at the staggering age of 24 even though I'm planning on staying 21 for atleast 10 more years! I'm really into music and prefer the heavier kind before useless bands like U2 :D I play the guitar on my spare time and i enjoy everything from having a beer to playing squash.
And unlike David I'm from the most northern part of Sweden, a town called Kiruna.Where the term shortage of snow doesn't exist. My family is pretty big and I got 6 siblings, and I'm the second oldest one.

Hey, I guess I have to do this a second time, I put mine on the listas page but not this one. Anyways I'm Megan Stiffler and I'm a Senior in Genetics and Biology Education. My first love is the genetics part and I'm not really sure that I will ever use the education part. I'm studying to become a genetic councellor. I'm from Indianapolis, IN and I will be 21 for only a month more. I love anime and manga as well as reading fantansy and fairtrale. I like electronica music and if you put all of those together it adds up to me being a giant nerd, which I am perfectly happy with. I also love to swing dance and do whenever possible. As a random side note I'm the project manager and if anyone has troubles doing anything with this wiki project come to me first and I can get the problem to the correct person.
