Sites to collaborate with other educators to increase to the use of web resources in the classroom:
http://www.thinkfinity.org/groups/onlinetools - community of educators working together to share ideas and resources and help increase the use of technology in the classroom
http://www.thinkfinity.org/groups/math - Learning Math community is set up by NCTM for math educators to collaborate and share ideas.

Using Web 2.0 Tools strategically help students reason and explain, to help them see structures and make generalizations, and to problem solve.
