'This conventional approach is at odds with knowledge about how people learn. ... Researchers have demonstrated that students learn more effectively when they are actively engaged in the learning process and self evaluation. [Web 2.0] applies this active learning approach using ... social computing technologies, such as Facebook, MySpace, blogs, cell phones, etc., to increase student engagement in botanical science and to address known recruitment and retention challenges."
