The effect of Web 2.0 applications on the development of educational communication activities in teaching

Amr Abdelazim, Qasim AlAjmi, Huda AlBusaidi


Communication is an essential task for the educational process, and it is a vital process for all consensus and understanding processes that educators must undertake. The conversation aims are to reach the desired goals of the educational institution. Communication is an interactive social process-based and highly dependent on the sharing of meanings between the sender and the receiver. There is excellent effectiveness of educational technology because of its success in dealing with many instructional problems. This effectiveness is due to its characteristics and advantages, and web 2.0, if properly employed, can solve some - or all - of the issues related to scholarly communication. This study aimed to propose a model in order to activate educational communication activities and teaching in primary schools. The results have shown a remarkable improvement in all aspects of communication activities after employing Web 2.0 applications in these aspects to develop and increase their effectiveness. We hope that this study will contribute to opening a new direction of research concerned with employing new generations of the Web, such as Web 3.0, to create an educational connection that contributes to improving educational outcomes in schools.
