Web 2.0 Is the Future of Education

Web 2.0 Is the Future of Education
(Cross-posted from TechLearning) A moment of extreme clarity became an obsession for me last week. A session that I had prepared for the IL-TCE conference went from "Web 2.0 Tools for the Classroom" to "Why Web 2.0 Is Important to the Future of Education." It was not, I know, what I was supposed to talk about. I believe that the read/write Web, or what we are calling Web 2.0, will culturally, socially, intellectually, and politically have a greater impact than the advent of the printing press. Trend #2: A Tidal Wave of Information. I will also say that on a personal level, when people ask me the answer to content overload, I tell them (counter-intuitively) that it is to produce more content. Trend #3: Everything Is Becoming Participative. Trend #6: An Explosion of Innovation. Trend #7: The World Gets Even Flatter and Faster. It's the model of students as contributors that really grabs me, and leads to the next trend. Trend #9: The Long Tail. * Learn About Web 2.0. * Lurk. Related:  cours aut12

Twitter en classe : une pratique qui séduit professeurs et élèves Les enseignants sont de plus en plus nombreux à utiliser les réseaux sociaux en cours. Twitter se prête particulièrement à la mise en place d’initiatives pédagogiques originales, de la maternelle à l’université. Qu’apporte l’utilisation d’un tel outil en classe et comment exploiter ses fonctionnalités dans le cadre scolaire ? Ils sont nombreux à avoir emboîté le pas de Laurence Juin, l’une des premières enseignantes à avoir pris conscience du potentiel pédagogique de l’outil de micro-blogging. Twitter en primaire : un vecteur pour l’apprentissage du français Jean-Roch Masson, instituteur de primaire à Dunkerque, expérimente depuis la rentrée 2010 l’utilisation de Twitter en cours, un « humble tâtonnement » pour l’instant, comme il le définit lui-même. Amandine Terrier, professeur de CE2, CM1 et CM2, utilise également Twitter avec ses élèves, notamment lors des sorties scolaires, suite auxquelles les enfants peuvent tweeter leurs découvertes.

The New Media Literacies The white paper Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century (Jenkins et al., 2006) identifies the kinds of participatory practices youth are engaged in today, and draws up a provisionary list of the skills these practices demonstrate. In the video below, members of the NML team share their thoughts and perspectives on the skills we call the new media literacies. One of our key goals is to stop focusing quite so much on “do kids have computers in their classroom?” and start focusing more on “do kids have the basic social skills and cultural competencies so that when they do get computers in their classroom, they can participate fully?” It’s not that it isn’t important that students have computers in their classrooms. The New Media Literacies constitute the core cultural competencies and social skills that young people need in our new media landscape. Play: the capacity to experiment with one’s surroundings as a form of problem-solving.
