Edubloggercon – Classroom 2.0 session

Saturday, June 23rd, 2007

Some quick thoughts from a session on Classroom 2.0 …

– With wikis, some people are hesitant to add because they think they might be “wrong.”

School 2.o was too radical of an idea for many. [My note: I started out there for just that reason; I was looking for a group with some ideas that were “out there.” It was a little lonely though. I moved over to Classroom 2.0, but sometimes find that much of the discussion there is not really 2.0-related.]

– There may be a need for a more database-type approach for creating/storing/accessing 2.0 curriculum resources that’s more structured than a wiki.

* There needs to be a set of tags that identify educational grade level, content area, and even national standards correlation. [My note: This is a really big idea, I think. There are so many great resources out there, but there needs to be consistent tags so they can be accessed easier.]

– There was a discussion of issues related to blocking of Google video, YouTube, etc. If more people licensed content under Creative Commons though, this content could be “harvested” off of these sites and put on other more “education-friendly” sites.
