  • 2. Ten aspects of paradigm shift
    • Pedagogy : Didactic --> constructivist and conversational

    • Literacy : Print literacy --> multiliteracies
    • Heuristics : Client server -->peer to peer
    • Transfer : Informal technology is F.U.N. --> applied to professional practice
    • Directionality : Push --> pull
    • Ownership : Proprietary --> open source
    • Classification : Taxonomies --> folksonomies
