  • Part of the philosophy here is helping the learner build e-portfolios. For the gifted and talented learners, it's about guiding them on the more positive use of social network sites (SNS), such as friendster, multiply, myspace, facebook, etc. Of course, younger kids' portfolios may initially take the form of scrapbooks (remember scrapblog?) Web 2.0 viewed as a Teaching/Learning Toolset, (blogs, wikis, podcasts, rss feeds, etc.) is like an educational Swiss knife, which allows for a more diverse range of interactions between teachers, parents and kids, all working in a social learning ecosystem, consisting of multi-modal learning objects of videos, fotos, text and audio files, that are continually transformed into learning artifacts, in a virtual sea of conversations. Keywords to explore are ePortfolios, Web 2.0, Social Software.
