The video shows a simple explanation that compares the differences between Web 1.0 and Web 2.0. Web 2.0 allows users to both download and upload content to the internet.
Create a list of all the apps, games and websites where you have shared or uploaded content e.g. sending an email. You will be amazed at how much content we actually share online.
Now watch the link here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sq43tWzLGms which discusses both the benefits and negatives to Web 2.0. You can design a poster using Microsoft Word which models the information from above. Remember to include steps on staying safe online. Posters can be shared via Padlet.
