VoiceThread has an interesting presentation about using Web 2 tools in the classroom. There are some great ideas in here. There are several different slides to the presentation so make sure you look at them all. You might like to make some comments on different pages especially if you have had experiences in with the tools.
Voicethread 4 Education wiki has some great ideas for using VoiceThread in the classroom.

I have not discussed Prezi on my blog but it is a web 2 tool that I use for presentations and is a nice change to the usual PowerPoints. An advantage is that you can download presentations to take with you as well as embedding videos etc into the presentation.

It is a great tool to use in the classroom for students to present their work.

I made this one about Web 2 tools used in the classroom for communicating and collaborating.
