Nov 6 – adopting a new teaching paradigm
Yes, Web 2.0 technology lets us build Edu 2.0, but keep in mind that Web 2.0 technology was introduced around 2007, maybe 2008 (the rise of social networking).
The new trends in crowdsourcing and “big data”, social constructivism and Connectivism are enabling what people are calling “Education 3.0”.
The issue is: will teachers and teaching institutions update their pedagogy, adapt to the new technology, and adopt a new relationship with the student? Or will they keep scratching away with chalk on blackboards, safe in their lonely little F2F classrooms?
