Web 2.0 technologies have made an impact on teaching and learning. It has the potential to attract and excite learners and transform the way lessons are conducted in the classroom. For the students who are digital natives found in schools today, Web 2.0 technologies seem appropriate. Blogs and YouTube videos, for example, can be incorporated where relevant so as to engage their attention in the classroom. The paper describes how an art teacher in a private secondary school decided to use these technologies in her art classroom, an initiative which later also caught the attention of the school management including the Chief Executive Officer of the school, following which some new directions were set for the coming academic year.
