Many to Many: How Entire Communities Can Collaborate Source: http://houseofpaper.files.wordpress.com/2009/07/here-comes-everybody.jpg Educon 2.2 Conversation-- Jim Heynderickx

www.k12converge.com Secret Subtitles Should Entire Communities Collaborate? Should Online Academics be Separate from Social Networks?
Are there limits to online openness? We're bored with Moodle.... what's next? It's suicide to use blogs with students. How do we figure out this
Web 2.0, Two-Way Web Thing? Can I get fired for this? Clay Shirky-- http://www.ramiropol.com.ar/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/ClayShirky.jpg Five Big Ideas
and One General
Concept Idea 2: Facebook, Twitter, Mobile Phones,
IM, Discussion Boards, Blogs, Nings, Listservs,
Flickr and related services are altering how
inter-supportive groups form. Idea 1: Technology is removing scarsity
and cost in the areas of publishing, communication,
information access, and connectivity. Idea 3: Self-organizing groups can create content and action of great value. Examples: Flickr photo collections, Wikipedia, Publicity for causes, Social Action against repression, and micro-niche support groups. Idea 4: Professions based on scarsity of information production and distribution will have to change in light of widespread amateurization. Idea 5: Not all Internet-enhanced groups and causes will be "good." Examples: teenage pro-anorexia support groups, terrorist groups, how to make homemade bombs, etc. General Concept: The printing press wasn't good for the profession of "scribes." The Internet isn't necessarily good for the professions of journalism, professional photographers, and other information specialists. The change in information access, however, is good for overall society. Schools and Web 2.0
Tools EdTech Evolution:

but no collaboration Teacher experimentation with Web 2.0 tools Comprehensive Online Academic Content Management System Constructive and focused online collaboration and sharing Regular email
use Participation in
Web 2.0 for personal
interests Routine Web 2.0 use
for professional
and social ends Core Concepts Possible Path Class-centric.
Semester-centric. Student-centric.
Multi-year, if not permanent. Moodle pages disappear at end of semester or year Moodle pages have threaded discussions and information sharing Only enrolled students can see Moodle pages No Parent Access. No Public Access. Moodle pages for all classes, grades 6-12 Altered role of outside authorities and adult community involvement. Altered assessment/requirements for coursework. Acculmulating knowledge. Profile page per student. Shared or hidden artefacts. Focused Porfolio pages. Student choice of private data, sharing with teacher, classmates, division, parents, public. Shared, multi-year discussion and information exchange by subject. Why? So education more closely resembles 21st Century lifelong learning. So students see trusted adults model online citizenship. Potential global reach. Because comfort with networking
skills has always been an asset. Is this change good or bad? Is this a fad? As Clay Shirky notes, the new paradigm is Publish then Filter. So: New Alternative Subtitles What if the whiteboards were never erased? What if generations of students could collaborate? If all my school work sticks around, is it a type of externalized memory?
