Edu 540 week 5 discussion | EDU 540 Designing, Developing and Evaluating Educational Technology | Strayer University


 From the article in this week’s reading, “Web 1.0 was characterized by the existence of passive web-sites and applications providing information. Web 2.0 is associated with web applications that facilitate participatory information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design and collaboration on the WWW.”

  • Discuss this shift in the Internet in terms of constructivism and implications for using technology in the classroom.
  • Points to consider (address at least two of these):
    • Classroom resources.
    • Student view of technology (social tool, educational tool, something that is new and cool to use, etc.).
    • Student interaction with technology.
    • Opportunities to use technology in the classroom.
    • Connecting with students outside the classroom.
