Well, web 2.0 in learning has been anointed. John Seely Brown: "Rather than treat pedagogy as the transfer of knowledge from teachers who are experts to students who are receptacles, educators should consider more hands-on and informal types of learning. These methods are closer to an apprenticeship, a farther-reaching, more multilayered approach than traditional formal education, he said." Will Richardson responds:, pointing to "the ability to connect to others who are passionate about whatever it is that you want to learn." Related: Ross Dawson's overview of Web 2.0.
