Hello. I have been listening to Ben Wilkoff's podcast Discourse about Discourse recently. He is doing some amazing things with his 7th/8th grade language art class in Colorado. On his podcast from June 19, 2007 "The 1.0 to 2.0 Transformation" he asks an open ended question about the difference between Classroom 1.0, 1.5, 2.0 etc. I've been thinking a lot about Classroom 2.0 lately and this podcast tries to answer Ben's question and then also asks a few more.
Some of the questions in today's podcast:
- What is the difference between Classroom 1.0 and Classroom 2.0?
- Is there such a thing as Classroom 1.5? If so, what does it look like?
- What is the definition of a true 2.0 Classroom?
- Is Classroom 2.0 possible without a 1 to 1 ratio for students to laptops?
- Is there a tipping point at which Classroom 2.0 will become a norm in the United States and what is that tipping point?
- How does NCLB fit into Classroom 2.0?
Please add your comments to this blog post. I don't know the answer to these questions but would really like to hear what others in the edu blog community think about these topics. If you would like to contact me via e-mail instead you can do so at firstname.lastname@example.org
