E-Learning 2.0 - Why the New Tools

Stephen Downes, Jul 20, 2006
Commentary by Stephen Downes

PowerPoint slides and MP3 Audio of my online presentation today. My talk, scheduled for one hour, went (with a willing audience) closer to two hours, which was nice, because I was able to develop the topic the way I wanted. After sketching the progression of Web 2.0 tools (from personal publishing to webtops) I outlined (drawing heavily on Konrad Glogowski) how it enables new forms of learning. From this, I outlined some of the theory underlying these new forms, and from this theoretical stance, responded in part to the critics of these new models (a version of the same argument found in these pages yesterday).
