Web 2

Page history last edited by PBworks 14 years, 9 months ago
Entering the internet time period that people will call Web 3.0 is inevitable, but the specifics of what web 3.0 is or will include is up for debate.... instead of hypothesizing about Web 3.0, I thought I’d focus on the next wave of Web 2.0 technology. This has been a work in progress for awhile, but I think I finally finished my thoughts.
1.Merging of Blogging and Social Networking
2.API’s become Vital
3.Continued Rise of Wiki’s (user-generated content)
4.Mobile Web Applications Take Off
5.RSS as a search tool

The Web and especially the modern variants such as Web 2.0 create an interesting kind of participatory medium, one where we can engage in productive inquiry around subjects that we are passionate about. Today, many of us prefer surfing the Web and exploring new information to passively watching TV. But many kids today do more than just explore: They create, tinker, share and build on each others creations. We are slowly reconstructing a culture of tinkering, which lays the foundation for a grounded understanding of theoretical topics that you learn about in school. Also, the Net helps you to not just learn about something but more importantly to learn to be something—to learn a practice, not just learn about the practice. For example, thousands of kids learn what it means to be a computer programmer by joining an open-source community such as Linux. What a great way to learn—acculturating into a practice. Such provides a new kind of apprenticeship, a distributed one where the community mind becomes the expert to which one apprentices.


Beginner's guide to Web 2.0 Mike Wesch provides a tutorial for 'students' (and lecturers) lots of links and things to make living and learning in the digital age a little easier. For example, how to use Netvibes as a way to stay up to date with all these wikis and blogs without struggle.
