dc.description.abstract The aim of this paper is to review current research on the use of web 2.0 interactive tools in second language (L2) writing classrooms. Research shows that web 2.0 interactive tools are starting to find their way into almost all pedagogical practices in L2 classrooms, especially writing. This review discusses how wikis, blogs, social bookmarking, micro-blogging, and social networking are recognized as interactive tools that help L2 learners in collaboratively developing their various writing assignments. The review also indicates that regardless of their important role in writing classrooms, these interactive tools might have serious drawbacks that require teachers’ attention to ensure that they are not negatively interfering with the learning and teaching process. Finally, this review highlights important issues that teachers need to consider if they plan to use web 2.0 tools in their classrooms. en_US
