  • Wow! This is a wonderful explanation of the relationship between web 1.0, web 2.0 and web 3.0! It also brings together nicely much of what we learned through participation in CCK08. Thanks for demonstrating how the networked teacher can productively use resources in the classroom to support student learning of content and concepts.
