Thanks for sharing this Vicki! As I viewed it I was thinking to myself “How many of our teachers would even understand it?” I didn’t mean that in a negative or condescending way — I just thought about the terms used in the slide show and how many of our teachers don’t know this vocabulary… yet. :)

This summer I have been taking grad classes. While viewing this slideshow I thought about how many of my fellow teachers just don’t understand the technology and it’s future implications. The reality is that the traditional office isn’t necessary anymore. As teachers, we need to educate ourselves in new technology so that we can better prepare our students for a global workforce. Thanks for posting this.

I agree with Stephanie that some of the words used are unfamiliar to most teachers. I think it means that we are not yet ready for the enterprise 2.0

Thanks, I enjoyed reading your slideshow. Web 2.0 is all new to me, but your blog helped me understand a little bit more about web 2.0. I’m a 2nd grade teacher so I try to stay up to date with technology for not only myself but my students too. This slideshow has intrigued me! This makes me excited to learn more about web 2.0 in the near future. Thanks for sharing!

I think most students are ready for enterprise 2.0, considering the communication skill they have learned through different activities given in schools. Thanks for sharing this.

wow, does this ever make me think about the gap between the skills students need and the abilities of teachers to help them gain those skills. Most of my staff wouldn’t even understand the slideshow, let alone be able to explain it or prepare students to work in an online social environment!
