A short post from Alexander Hayes really made me sit up and look. The slideshare presentation on the future of participatory media raised some really interesting concepts that explains some of the ‘issues’ we are looking at as Web 2.0 educators. The presentation itself is not directed at educators – but by golly are there things for us to learn. It’s a year old, but still oh so relevant.
Conversations that are cross device and multichannel – that’s what we need for sure. Any device that is web enabled should be part of our educator’s tool kit. The kids get it! but when will we! Lets get into disruptive innovation. Lets discover the difference between social networking and what Jyri Engeström
describes as “social objects” – or in our case perhaps its learning objects and social objectives. Now I understand better why Flickr and Delicious has worked in classrooms, but other things have not. A worthwhile set of slides to view.
