  4. 4. The Case for Collaborative ~ Digital Learning • Education is changing. • Competition is changing internationally. • The workplace, jobs, and skill demands are changing.
  5. 5. Our world is Changing…
  6. 6. The Implications • These changes, among others, are ushering us toward a world where knowledge, power, and productive capability will be more dispersed than at any time in our history—a world where value creation will be fast, fluid, and persistently disruptive. Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything Don Tapscott & Anthony D. Williams
  7. 7. The Challenge • Our Digital Immigrant instructors, who speak an outdated language (that of the pre-digital age), are struggling to teach a population that speaks an entirely new language

  26. 26. Benefits • A growing body of scholarship suggests potential benefits of these forms of participatory culture, including: – opportunities for peer-to-peer learning, – a changed attitude toward intellectual property, – the diversification of cultural expression, – the development of skills valued in the modern workplace, and a more empowered conception of citizenship. Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century Henry Jenkins
  27. 27. Impact on Learning • Participatory culture shifts the focus of literacy from one of individual expression to community involvement. • The new literacies almost all involve social skills developed through collaboration and networking. • These skills build on the foundation of traditional literacy, research skills, technical skills, and critical analysis skills taught in the classroom. Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century Henry Jenkins
  28. 28. What we need to do… • Teach kids how to access information • Use tools for collaborating • Use tools to communicate on the web • Develop their own learning networks • Understand social network implications • Have fun

  35. 35. Wikipedia: Collaborative Encyclopedia Being Edited in Real Time by Anyone Talking about the importance of wikis for business, BusinessWeek wrote in 2005: Internet research firm Gartner Group predicts that wikis will become mainstream collaboration tools in at least 50% of companies by 2009. At Ann Arbor (Mich.)-based Soar Technology Inc., an artificial- intelligence company that works on projects for the Office of Naval Research, wikis enable the company to slash in half the time it takes to complete projects. Soar engineer Jacob Crossman says that’s because the wikis eliminate the usual flurry of back-and-forth attachments and resulting document-version confusion that’s rife in e-mail. At Dresdner, Rangaswami says that among the earliest and most aggressive adopters, e-mail volume on related projects is down 75%; meeting times have been whacked in half.

  56. 56. The Bottom Line The value is in the content and how you use it. Not in the technology itself. User involvement embellishes content. Users can participate and produce their own content, or add to others, not just passively sit back and watch the web go by. Tagging gives content meaning. Making it easier to identify, classify, manipulate share and recycle. Users should be able to choose what they get, how they get it, when they get it and where they get it.
