Web 2.0

In order for schools today to be successful they must be data driven.  So, how do we incorporate that initiative into our lives... Often I find myself looking beyond the boundaries of the United States for ideas.  I guess after reading "The World is Flat" by Thomas Friedman, I began to realize that everyone has the ability to do anything.  And, while that may be a bummer for us, it's an increased sense of participation for most of the world.    Here's where we can take note on what the rest of the world is up to.

A summary of what Europe is collecting for their Learning 2.0 Study...
  1. Identify and Analyse the existing practices and related success factors of major 2.0 initiatives in the field of learning in Europe:
  2. Look at the innovative dimension of using web 2.0 for learning:
  3. Analyse the position of Europe vs. the rest of the world in terms of quantitative and qualitative use of innovative Learning 2.0 approaches:
  4. Discuss the potential of social computing applications to (re)-connect groups at risk-of-exclusion:
  5. Propose avenues for further research and policy-making.
I think these could all be part of a solid case to move to Web 2.0!
