Web 2.0 and Teaching Technical Writing

I think I’ve finally figured out how to incorporate some of the new internet technology (web 2.0) into my technical writing class. I want the students to write formal reports, and I’ve decided to have them collaborate on that assignment. I believe what I’ll do is assign each group one of the following to research and report on:

  • blogs
  • wikis
  • RSS feeds
  • podcasting
  • free and open-source software

In their reports, they would include how this particular type of communication or technology is or can be used in business, as well as how to find and use it.
