  • 3. What is Web 2.0? 3 Web 2.0 is the business revolution in the computer industry caused by the move to the Internet as platform, and an attempt to understand the rules for success on that new platform. Chief among those rules is this: Build applications that harness network effects to get better the more people use them. (This is what I've elsewhere called "harnessing collective intelligence) /O'Reilly Radar definition updated October 2006 IB Asia Pacific Teachers’ Convention © IB 2007
  • 4. What is Web 2.0? 4 Web 2.0 is about the more human aspects of interactivity. It's about conversations, interpersonal networking, personalization, and individualism... In Web 2.0, information flows in multiple directions, is user‐generated, and is shared widely. George Lorenzo, Diana Oblinger and Charles Dziuban (2007) http://www.educause.edu/apps/eq/eqm07/eqm0711.asp?bhcp=1 IB Asia Pacific Teachers’ Convention © IB 2007

  • 10. Technology & today’s students 10 … They live in an incredibly fast‐moving world significantly different than the one we grew up in...These ‘digital natives’ are born into digital technology. Conversely, their teachers (and all older adults) are ‘digital immigrants’. Marc Prensky (2005) Adopt and Adapt http://www.edutopia.org/magazine/ed1article.php?id=Art_1423&issue=dec_05 Constantly connected to information and each other, students don't just consume information. They create — and re‐create — it. With a do‐it‐yourself, open‐source approach to material, students often take existing material, add their own touches, and republish it. Bypassing traditional authority channels, self‐publishing — in print, image, video, or audio — is common. George Lorenzo, Diana Oblinger and Charles Dziuban (2007) http://www.educause.edu/apps/eq/eqm07/eqm0711.asp?bhcp=1 IB Asia Pacific Teachers’ Convention © IB 2007
  • 11. RSS (really simple syndication) 11 RSS allows you to subscribe and read news from your favourite websites, without having to visit each site. RSS allows more people to share information more easily. Content streams are called "RSS feeds" or "news feeds”, which often contain content that changes frequently, such as daily entries on a blog. IB Asia Pacific Teachers’ Convention © IB 2007
  • 12. RSS 12 In order to be able to use a feed, a software tool known as an aggregator or feed reader is required, e.g. Alernatively, a web browser may be used, e.g. or, an email client, e.g. IB Asia Pacific Teachers’ Convention © IB 2007

  • 19. Wikis 19 A wiki is a website where content can be added, edited or removed by anyone with access to a Web browser and the Internet. Wikis can be used for collaborative writing or group projects involving multimedia. The relative ease with which pages can be added and updated appeal to both students and teachers.

  • 26. Podcasting/vodcasting 26 “Podcast” refers to any software and hardware combination (e.g. desktop PC, laptop, mobile phone or PDA) that permits automatic downloading of audio files for listening at the users' convenience. The subscription feed distinguishes a podcast from a simple download or real‐time streaming. This is similar to the difference between the newspaper at the newsagent (that people have to make a decision to go and buy) and the paper that is delivered to your home every morning. Ewan MacDonald (2006) Vodcasting is almost identical to podcasting. The difference is that the content is video versus audio. IB Asia Pacific Teachers’ Convention © IB 2007

  • 34. Social bookmarking 34 Social bookmarking sites are a popular way to store, classify, share and search links through the practice of folksonomy techniques on the Internet or Intranet. Social bookmarking has three key benefits:  • Access your bookmarks anywhere  • Share your bookmarks with friends/colleagues  • See what others are bookmarking by way of interesting tags IB Asia Pacific Teachers’ Convention © IB 2007

  • 38. Social networking 38 Increasingly, this is the reason students log on. Websites that draw people back again and again are those that connect them with friends, colleagues, or even total strangers who have a shared interest. It is more than just a friends list; truly engaging social networking offers an opportunity to contribute, share, communicate, and collaborate. The New Media Consortium & the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (2007) www.nmc.org/pdf/2007_Horizon_Report.pdf IB Asia Pacific Teachers’ Convention © IB 2007
  • 39. Social networking  39 • 43 % of Internet users who are members of online communities “feel as strongly” about their virtual community as they do about their real‐world communities  • 56 % log into their community at least once a day  • 70 % of online community members say they sometimes or always interact with other members while logged in USC‐Annenberg Digital Future Project, 2007 http://www.digitalcenter.org/ Students are increasingly connecting with their peers from other towns, states, and even countries... This new online connectedness is redefining the word 'friend'. eSchool News, 22 March 2007 ‐ article on 2006 annual Speak Up survey http://www.eschoolnews.com/news/showStory.cfm?ArticleID=6951 IB Asia Pacific Teachers’ Convention © IB 2007
  • 40. Social networking - Flickr 40 Flickr (http://www.flickr.com) is a free photo sharing website. In addition to being a popular website for users to share personal photographs, it is widely used by bloggers as a photo repository. Flickr’s popularity has been fuelled by its innovative online community tools that allow photos to be tagged, browsed and commented upon. IB Asia Pacific Teachers’ Convention © IB 2007

  • 43. Social networking – MySpace, FaceBook 43 Facebook is the leading social networking site among college students. Users can create profiles that include personal interests, affiliations, pictures, etc. Information entered in a profile (e.g. favourite band) links that user to others who have posted similar information. MySpace is similar and is currently the world's 5th most popular English‐language website and the 5th most popular website in any language, attracting nearly 80% of visits to online social networking websites Wikipedia ‐ MySpace http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MySpace IB Asia Pacific Teachers’ Convention © IB 2007

  • 46. E-portfolios 46 An electronic portfolio, also known as an e‐portfolio, or digital portfolio, is a collection of electronic evidence (artifacts, including inputted text, files such as Word and PDF files, images, multimedia, blog entries and Web links etc.) assembled and managed by a user, usually online. E‐portfolios are both demonstrations of the user’s abilities and platforms for self‐expression, and, if they are online, they can be maintained dynamically over time. Some e‐portfolio applications permit varying degrees of audience access, so the same portfolio might be used for multiple purposes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_portfolio March 2007 IB Asia Pacific Teachers’ Convention © IB 2007

  • 52. (E-)learning 2.0 52 The traditional approach to e‐learning (e‐learning 1.0) has been to use a virtual learning environment for content delivery and consumption by students – an approach often driven by the needs of the institution rather than the learner. The experience of e‐learning for many has been no more than a hand‐out published online, coupled with a simple multiple‐ choice quiz. Hardly inspiring, let alone empowering. Steve O’Hear (2006) IB Asia Pacific Teachers’ Convention © IB 2007
  • 53. (E-)learning 2.0 53 The emergence of new tools and services are facilitating knowledge creation, management, sharing and dissemination. In moving to e‐learning 2.0 there is greater emphasis on creation, collaboration and communication. …e‐learning has developed from a state of 'automation' (putting 'static' courses online) to one of 'innovation'...We are moving into a new era of sharing content, collaborating and syndicating learning materials online. This is not just about learning content but about developing new ways of learning. Jane Knight, Learning Light, 2007 IB Asia Pacific Teachers’ Convention © IB 2007

  • 56. Summary/closing thoughts 56 Advancing the adoption and use of social software in schools requires the three C’s ‐ comfort, confidence, and creativity. In education and in our society, we have to move from seeing computer work as technical to seeing it as communicative. …the fast development of Web 2.0 has created a situation where many of the powers‐that‐be have no idea that such possibilities exist.
