How Are Learners Using Classroom 2.0?

  1. 1. How are learners using Classroom 2.0? Our survey says………
  2. 2. A typical ‘bebo boomer’…. <ul><li>Multi-tasks </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Communicates - MSN, Skype, Voicethread </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Networks – Bebo, HI5, Facebook, Piczo </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Uploads – Flickr, Paintbucket, personal web site, blogs, forums, wikis </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Downloads – Limewire, bittorent, morpheus </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Plays - flashgames </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Owns </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mobile phone </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Games console </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PC or Laptop </li></ul></ul>(Phrase coined by Ewan McIntosh, Scotland)
  3. 3. Is seduced by web 2.0…. To contribute, share, rate, vote, comment, recommend, trust Recommendations, star ratings, invitation to review Content aggregators - bubble up popular content, connect you with like-minded people RSS feeds - notify of changes in real-time, threads make connections People who bought this also bought….You can trust this person…. Pagerank - popular pages rise to the top of the table P2P - The more popular the file, the more routes and bandwidth, the faster it is served
  4. 4. To contribute, participate, share…. <ul><li>Read/Write web </li></ul><ul><li>Participation, collaboration, syndication </li></ul><ul><li>User generated content </li></ul><ul><li>Simultaneously Authors/Publishers/Editors </li></ul><ul><li>‘ Favourites’ superseded by ‘del.icio.us’ </li></ul><ul><li>Different sites work together, mashup </li></ul><ul><li>Growth and improvement of Open Source </li></ul>In the new terminology, it is better to be a ‘seeder’ than a ‘leech’ Focus shifting from what learners download to what they upload to the web
  5. 5. Is fascinated by, and engaged by, classroom 2.0….
  6. 6. Is wireless, but always connected…. <ul><li>Drift from computer suites to portable wireless technologies </li></ul><ul><li>Web n’ walk on mobile phones/free wireless in public spaces </li></ul><ul><li>Drift from server rooms to external storage </li></ul><ul><li>Drift to (DIY?) VLE’s </li></ul><ul><li>Drift to dynamic Wikis and Blogs rather than static web pages </li></ul><ul><li>Drift to e-portfolios signposting web 2.0 content (videos on youtube, reflections on blogspot, podcasts via G-cast, plans on voo2do etc) </li></ul><ul><li>Drift to collaborative documents – sharing concept maps, word processors, speadsheets etc in real-time on Zoho, Google docs, mindmeister </li></ul>
  7. 7. Is able to showcase multimedia work via e-portfolio…. Will future e-portfolios signpost classroom 2.0 content hosted elsewhere?
  8. 8. Is chattering relentlessly…. <ul><li>Mobile phone text </li></ul><ul><li>MSN, Yahoo, YackPack </li></ul><ul><li>Twitter, Pownce </li></ul><ul><li>GTalk, AIM (can pick out key words from other web 2.0 sites and notify you) i.e. recently, I received an email from the PBWiki team who picked up that I had twittered about updating my PBWiki to a colleague the previous evening </li></ul><ul><li>Dedicated websites– Bigblueball.com </li></ul>

Intelligent software’s utilise semantic data to extract new meanings and orders, suggest future patterns and build new personalised connections. In a virtual curriculum will attendance registers be part-based on usage patterns and tracking software’s (learners participation in discussions, blogs, live webinars etc?
