What's Web 2.0?
"The web has changed from a "read only" resource to a "read AND write" tool where we can all contribute ideas and products.
"We are no longer limited to being independent readers or consumers of information; ...we can be collaborators in the creation of large storehouses of information"
"Today's schools are faced with a difficult dilemma that pits a student body that has grown up immersed in technology against a teaching faculty that is less facile with the tools of the trade."
"...literacy involves not just reading and comprehending the text in front of you. It now includes a range of skills to find, naviagte, access, decode, evaluate and organize the information from a globally networked information landscape."
Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms.

On the flip side, what do see as the greatest pitfalls of the new media? What might educators do to mitigate some of these problems?
What do you think educators most need to know to navigate the new digital landscape? What technological skills are necessary? How can teachers build the skills and knowledge they need?
add a picture that represents your work.
