Recent research suggests that the old notions of digital natives and immigrants have to be reconsidered, since today digital media skills vary considerably among students from different socioeconomic backgrounds. However, instructors can help to level the playing field by incorporating free and comprehensible Web 2.0 tools into their teaching. This paper introduces and discusses a number of online applications for collaborative writing, mind-mapping, as well as the creation of comics, cartoons, posters and presentations. The suggested sample activities focus on user-friendliness, easy implementation into Class Management Systems and pedagogical value for L2-teaching.
