The web is changing (us):

From centralized information crunching to distributed personal presence

Pervasive networked environments

New devices make us more “webable”

Learning happens everywhere, and in the space between

Virtual / learning spaces must change

Discussion Institutions are far behind users… … but not all users are 2.0 yet 2.0 is much more than technology 2.0 is, first of all, a cultural change 2.0 is not about doing the same things with new tools, is doing new things Crowdsourcing, innovation and creativity: let them create the web

Institutions are far behind users…

… but not all users are 2.0 yet

2.0 is much more than technology

2.0 is, first of all, a cultural change

2.0 is not about doing the same things with new tools, is doing new things

Crowdsourcing, innovation and creativity: let them create the web

Discussion Technology is always changing and challenging… … but the real challenge is about people using new technologies Social software is a tool for learners to create learning spaces Learners (want to) take control over the learning process

Technology is always changing and challenging…

… but the real challenge is about people using new technologies

Social software is a tool for learners to create learning spaces

Learners (want to) take control over the learning process

Discussion Learners share knowledge through their personal learning spaces… … but communities of practice are not exactly communities of learning Knowledge is no longer within the walls of the university, it has escaped! The pedagogical model itself has changed: pushing knowledge -> pulling

Learners share knowledge through their personal learning spaces…

… but communities of practice are not exactly communities of learning

Knowledge is no longer within the walls of the university, it has escaped!

The pedagogical model itself has changed: pushing knowledge -> pulling

Discussion The sphere of knowledge is growing, research is Θ (R 2 ) and culture is Θ (R 3 ) Technology enhanced learning can help us to handle such huge volume… … but technology cannot replace teachers (but it can enhance them!) Semantics will help us to access such information through the use of concepts

The sphere of knowledge is growing, research is Θ (R 2 ) and culture is Θ (R 3 )

Technology enhanced learning can help us to handle such huge volume…

… but technology cannot replace teachers (but it can enhance them!)

Semantics will help us to access such information through the use of concepts

Discussion Contents in contexts through concepts New roles in the knowledge manifold Promote creativity and innovation… … but originality is overrated! Let’s keep things simple: OER is part of the web 2.0 thing Web 2.0 should not be rocket science Information exuberance and discoverability

Contents in contexts through concepts

New roles in the knowledge manifold

Promote creativity and innovation…

… but originality is overrated!

Let’s keep things simple:

OER is part of the web 2.0 thing

Web 2.0 should not be rocket science

Information exuberance and discoverability

Discussion Provide learners with simple tools Help them to aggregate data and services from different sources and build their personal learning spaces Promote reuse through CC, GFDL, … … but also by clean XHTML and other standards and specifications RDF and FOAF, but not for humans

Provide learners with simple tools

Help them to aggregate data and services from different sources and build their personal learning spaces
