Abstract: Despite the enthusiasm of integrating Web 2.0 technologies into learning environment design, researchers found that few instructors know the pedagogies that could lead to productive innovation (Collis & Moonen, 2008). This symposium consists of one theoretical paper and three case studies that investigated how emerging technologies such as collaborative web annotation tools, microblogging tools, and collaborative multimedia content creation tools can impact teaching and learning in higher education settings. The purpose of the symposium is to investigate the affordances and constraints of the emerging technologies, and discuss opportunities for optimal technology integration.
