The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of Web 2.0 educational technologies in improving student achievement as measured by content comprehension and written expression. This study used a pre-test/post-test quasi-experimental design with assessment. The study included 12 students, each of whom had an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). The study hypothesized that there was no difference in content comprehension and written expression between students using Web 2.0 technology and those students who did not use Web 2.0 technology. The null hypothesis was supported. The results indicated that there was no significant difference between the groups. Future research is recommended to include using a larger sample size and selecting participants from various educational levels.
