MEET THE TEAMWe are all current students studying for our Masters of Education and all have a keen interest in using Web2 tools with a guided inquiry approach to the teaching of History. Some of us have used Web2 tools before others have not. We all are enthused by the wonderful possibilities of teaching History using the plethora of Web2 tools available.
