There are various useful Web 2.0 tools that could contribute to teaching and learning in the classroom. The purpose of this study was to understand pre-service teachers’ top selections of Web 2.0 tools and ideas for integrating them into teaching and learning after exploring a number of categorized Web 2.0 tools.
