  • daniellindberg7165 Daniel Lindberg Preparing next generations for a future we as their teachers cannot know indeed supports your cry for more informal learning. Web x.0 clearly enables learning in personalized way regarding time, space and content. However, I dislike the rather naïve paean of praise of collaboration and collective intelligence.
    Let us have quick look back in history to make this clearer: Major breakthroughs in sciences (natural, social, religious etc.) have usually not been achieved by just making a statement. Rather the evolved out of process including, as a basis, quite a lot cognitive work done by one single person/ a few persons and, as a desired follow-up, some sort of peer review. The main point about this is: This way of generating knowledge takes time. And I would like to state: It is the only one. (Just consider the possibility of replacing a whole PhD-thesis by publishing three articles and the like.)
    Surely, Web 2.0 gives a voice to everyone and can thus help democratizing our world. However, it is no coincidence that representive democracy evolved out of the need for having experts with the capability and enough time to acquire deep knowledge in a certain matter. Giving those the floor, on the other hand, who are capable of reducing issues and their so called solutions to a maximum of three columns in a Tweet, a Facebook massages or a forum comment means a step backwards. Not only a long grown culture of developing ideas is at stake by balancing reasons and comparing arguments. Web x.0 allows instant sharing of information. That is not necessarily a bad thing, on the contrary: Being able to spread e.g. new treatment options is for sure a boon to humanity.
    The point is rather that the point of generating content is becoming the point of publishing that content. There is no time left for further reflection, peer review etc. to guarantee a minimum of quality. Having a look in forums – and even under this very comment – supports that point of view.
    Summing up, I would like to encourage every teacher to discuss social media in language teaching; simply because we have to overcome this unsatisfactory way of connecting information. Instead of trying to comment on everything and classify everything in antipodes like like/dislike we should help generations to come to develop a deeper understanding of evolution of knowledge and the fundamental ability to create and balance arguments. This is nothing short of a requirement to solve problems to come. A little more effort for a more elaborated debate culture is not the worst point to start at :)
