Web 2 and Education - a new topic heading needed ?
This may not be the right place for the discussion - but "web 2" is going to shape educational ICT profoundly in the next few years.
I have no idea how it will turn out or if it can deliver the things claimed of it.
Maybe its covered by other areas such as VLE - but I'd like to suggest a new section here.
Web 2.0 in Education & Profiles home is a good place to start if you don't know quite what I'm talking about.
As I see it web 2 is original a product of the "techieshere" - and making big inroads into management thinking and practices.
This site is a great example of it.
And web 2 should be in all schools soon.
Is web 2 the same as VLE, MLE?, how can the products of web 2 be used in education?, how to shift the mind set of school management and teachers to embrace it ? WTF exactly is Web 2 anyway ? How can you explain it to a 55 year old teacher ?
For me these are important and interesting questions and I would love to invite you to explore these with other interested people here on this site.
