  • 2. How is literacy different in a 2.0 World?
    • Content rises increasingly out of conversation rather than formal and procedural publishing,
    • The behavior of content depends more and more on the behavior of its readers, and responders/writers
    • People are increasingly connecting to each other through their content/through their ideas
    • Educational success must be much less a measure of what students know, and much more a measure of what they can teach themselves.
