Presentation Title“Classroom 2.0 or You Live Where?”
Description Classroom 2.0 is a “slippery concept” that can look different in different communities and schools. But there are some basic concepts that bring value to these classrooms, a few basic ideas that need to be considered by teachers who are looking to make changes to their classrooms. These classrooms are not just about teachers allowing their students to have weblogs, but about what we consider to be basic goals for education, how learning happens in global networks and the possibilities for our students to be legitimate contributors in their own right. Where have we been so far on this journey of change? What are some of the big ideas that we need to consider and where do we need to go next?
