Welcome!


Welcome to the School 2.0 Wiki.

There is a growing desire to rethink education and learning, and the phrase "School 2.0" is being used to think about what schools will look like in the future. There seem to be three factors driving this discussion:


  1. New collaborative computer technologies, in particular the read/write web, distance learning programs, free and open source software, and videoconferencing.
  2. The move from an industrial to information economy, and a change in skills that are valuable to employers.
  3. A culture that is rapidly becoming more transparent and collaborative because of the new technologies, allowing a more open discussion about many aspects of our society, including (and especially) education.

Please join our discussion.
