Web Two Point O(bama)

I have been so thrilled about the results of the election that I have not been able to settle down to write about (or even read about) my personal new learnings about Web 2.0.  As a teacher educator, I am hopeful that PresidentObama leadership will translate into improvements in all segments of the teaching/learning process and benefit both educators and students alike. I am confident that President Obama’s intelligence, imagination and creativity along with the wise choices he will make in his cabinet and other key posts will usher in a new era for education.  Hopefully, we can halt movement on the road that we are on that focuses more on standarized assessment than on learning for understanding.  The current agenda that centers on  learning for passing tests will never help to restore our country’s productivity nor enhance our common good.  I am looking forward to the days ahead and in participating in educational processes that prepare students with 21st century skills (including Web 2.0 tools) so that they can participate in global communities in thoughtful, intelligent, and caring ways.  Let us begin to imagine such an education.
