Please note: The views I express in this blog are not necessarily those of my school district, the FRHSD.
When faced with the question, “What kind of Web 2.0 tools are you using with your students?”, many educators might respond: “I didn’t even know there was a Web 1.0!” Before we can truly see the successful, pervasive permeation of collaborative internet technology in Education, we must help our colleagues understand what Web 2.0 means. In order to experience a ubiquitous use of collaborative internet technology in our schools, I believe ALL educators must be able to:
- Differentiate between Web 1.0 & Web 2.0
- Understand why internet collaboration is ESSENTIAL for 21st Century learners
- Truly believe that it is essential
- Use at least one Web 2.0 tool on a consistent basis (both personally AND professionally)
