I just took an online course with a very traditional online industrial age professor and I so wish I had the web2.0 challenges mentioned here. I think I would have been able to do such a better job.
This begs the question, which tools need we implement and facilitate at the k12 level in preparation for the work world and/or the college/university world. familiarity with which tools is not essential at the k12 level?
I was speaking earlier with a gentleman looking for quantitative research data on the efficacy of web2.0 tools in the classroom. While a wealth of teacher observation exists, which personally is more valuable than cold science, peer-reviewed, published, quantitative research studies do not yet exist.
These are a relic of the industrial age. I wonder if they hold any water anymore? What do you think?

Okay, so the ScribeFire doesn't add tags well, but it adds, so I am happy.
