An evaluation study investigated relevant aspects of successful project-based learning with Web 2.0. 27 teachers and 169 pupils from nine Austrian schools participated in the study.
The results show that teacher’s attitudes to the Internet as a communication medium predicts the general usage of Web 2.0, the usage of new media in schools, and the usage of Web 2.0 in this project. Significant correlations were found between pupil’s learning effects, their use of Web 2.0, and group coherence. Willingness to learn, aspects of class climate, and general satisfaction differ significantly between the project and school. Finally, teacher’s actual Web 2.0 usage is discussed.
