SIIA Ed Tech SummitMore people are connecting through social media every day, creating, personalizing, and sharing user-made content on the web, often called Web 2.0. There are a handful of emerging companies and products taking Web 2.0 to the next level with user generated games, animation and other rich media.

I’ve been making it my business to track them and will be moderating a panel discussion on the subject at the SIIA EdTech Summit in May, with several executives who have skin in the game from either the product development or product marketing perspective: Dave McCool of Muzzy Lane, Krista Marks of Kerpoof, Lee Wilson of Headway Strategies, and a surprise guest to be announced.

I hope you’ll be able to join us. Until then, keep an eye out for part two of this post which will cover companies in this emerging space that are on my radar.
