    The prevailing notion I hear among educators is that it is a waste of time, something to be done in lieu of homework. However, I ask, is it all bad? {21stcenturyskills4.jpg}
    These two graphics show the results of two surveys done on groups of students as part of a report entitled "CREATING &CONNECTING:Research and Guidelines on Online Social — and Educational — Networking" commissioned by the National School Boards Association. In this first set of pie charts, students admit to spending as much time in their social network talking about school work and topics related to classes as they did everything else.

    is Web
    Web 2.0, also called the Read/Write Web, is a phrase coined by noted web visionary Tim O'Reilly to describe the change in the web after the dot-com bubble burst in the late 1990's.

Here is a great list that describes the essential ingredients of what we mean by Web 2.0 (taken from Dion Hinchcliffe's blog):
    The Web and all its connected devices as one global platform of reusable services and data- you have the ability to go anywhere and use a variety of services on the internet and are not constrained by borders, and you have the ability to access data in a way unlike ever before.
