While reading up on all my twitter posts, I discovered this great little sound byte about Web 2.0 and Web 3.0. I love the explanation and just wanted to take this opportunity to share with everyone. Follow this link to hear the audio: http://www.ijohnpederson.com/images//2008/06/jim-kloss-on-web-2.mp3
I truly believe that schools need to focus their attention on these tools and make Web 3.0 our NOW and our future. It will take buy in from teachers, parents, administrators and county/state decision makers to really make it part of the curriculum. Students today understand it. They get it. They want to make it part of every aspect of their lives.
I recently surveyed the students at my school and they had an overwhelming plea to have more access to collaborative tools and to use them in the classroom. Teachers are always looking for ways to make learning interesting. Turns out, it's right under our noses! And so easy to use!
