This article provides insights into the use of Web 2.0 technologies from a personal perspective of an Australian education academic preparing the next generation of teachers at a higher education institution in Victoria Australia in digital and design technologies. In my presentation I will provide digital examples of the use of Web 2.0 technologies used by students to create, build, reflect, play and collaborate across a range of higher education subjects on offer for pre-service teachers that build knowledge, promote active and engaged learning, increase learner independence and tailor such learning to the individual needs of learners for the twenty first century. There are implications for any higher education institution involved with pre-service teachers in the teaching of a range of curriculum and the use of Web 2.0 technologies.
