In a very inception-like move, I’ll tell you that we are all inmersed in the Web 2.0.
This means that we are no longer passive receivers of information: we create, intervene, juxtapose, and change the web. This is the premise of the Web 2.0. Whether you’ve heard of it or not, we are all part of it.
For example, by leaving a comment in this blog, changing your Facebook Status, adding content in a Wikipedia article, by uploading any new and original content to the web, we are interacting with what was thought to be a static and fixed element.
This is all well and nice, but how does this influence teaching? Well, in a number of ways. For example, you can use all the previous links I’ve posted here, you can use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google and everything we have at our disposal so that students negotiate meaning.
Here I leave a #glogster poster I’ve created for you to delve into the phenomenon a bit more. There are #videos, #links, #images, and many other things.
Glogster is a great site were you can create posters and embed all sorts of content. So, start browsing!!
