Abstract

The powerful characteristic of Web 2.0 technologies is its interactiveness. While using Web 1.0 is like reading a big newspaper, Web 2.0 technology has made it possible for learners to participate, interact and collaborate online. The paper explores effective language learning integrated Web 2.0 technologies in terms of interaction. Interaction comprises Jonassen’s four dimensions: learner-instructor, leaner-learner, learner-content, and learner-interface. These four dimensions of interaction serve as a framework for language learning with Web 2.0. Furthermore, a deepened form of learner-learner interaction can result in collaboration. Literature review revealed that these four dimensions of interaction have been taking place and affecting effective language learning using Web 2.0 technologies.
