  • "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."Richarson, Will. Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms..
