Abstract: Take up of web 2.0 applications in formal Education and Training is still in an experimental phase and scientific evidence on Learning 2.0 practices in schools and universities is scarce. To gather more insights on the current use and potential impact of Learning 2.0, IPTS conducted an exploratory study on the use of social media applications in formal Education and Training to enhance learning activities and promote innovation and inclusion. The study employed a triangulation of research methodologies, drawing on a literature review, a collection of 250 cases, 16 in-depth case studies and an expert workshop. This article presents and discusses the main findings of this study. The evidence gathered suggests, among others, that Learning 2.0 approaches require and facilitate technological, pedagogical and organisational innovation and can thus contribute to the modernisation of European Education and Training institutions deemed necessary to face the challenges of the 21st century.
