Web 2.0 and Online Tools

This week we learned some useful information about web 2.0. In terms of education I see a lot of potential about using some of these tools in my classes. The information shared and gained through these tools will benefit the students. Students will gain skills through social media, document sharing, find information that will help them if they are stuck, and interact with these different tools to showcase their work. This all seems to connect nicely from what we have seen in the previous weeks and I really look forward to see how this fits in with the rest of the course.

It will be really interesting to see if web 3.0 takes off, I think it has, but we shall see. What are some of your thoughts?

Sorry my post was late, I got caught up with Green Bay winning the Super Bowl...

  1. We will have to wait and see where the internet takes us. Predictions are always an interesting adventure for anyone to make because those that are wrong are forgotten and those that are right are heralded. So why not take a stab in the dark. Web 3.0 seems to be getting in the groove. Just like anything it will be interesting to see how many evolutions marked by numbers we will see etched on the internet in the next twenty years. As much as we are in awe of these developments we have to remember that even when the internet is changing and shaping our lives and the way we operate we still have to be able to communicate with those who are not populating cyberspace. The internet and all its offerings are there to enhance our lives, not to dominate them.
