Breaking the Web2.0 barrier

Twitter is an instant way of linking with people, it’s not simply a mindless mumuring of trivia, there are some extremely powerful connections possible.  This morning I discovered this article by Will Richardson.  Here are his details

  • Location Stockton, New Jersey
  • Web http://www.weblog…
  • Bio Parent, author, speaker, blogger about social Web tools and their effects on schools, education and learning.

He quotes the US National Staff Development Council, when he says:

According to a report earlier this year by the National Staff Development Council, teacher education needs to be “sustained, focused on important content, and embedded in the work of collaborative professional learning teams.” And just as immersion is the best way to learn a foreign language, immersion into social networks with trusted guides and mentors is an effective way not only to provide context but to actually shift teacher practice.

Will has kindly posted a link to his article “Why Schools Should Break the Web 2.0 Barrier”

It’s a must read.
