Taxonomy for Media

Bruce and Levin* (1997) proposed a catalog of educational technologies use based upon Dewey's natural learning impulses.

Technology as Media for Inquiry
Technology as Media for Communication
Technology as Media for Construction
Technology as Media for Expression

Classification and division of tools in this manner can create order in the chaos of Web 2.0 applications.
