The purpose of my study is twofold: One) Assess how Web 2.0 impacts the construction of knowledge related to course content. Two) Assess how Web 2.0 impacts participant perceptions about the use of Web 2.0 tools in teaching information literacy. Using a qualitative case study approach, student views will be examined as they engage with Web 2.0 technologies, complete class assignments, and interact with each other and their instructor.
