As I read the article, “A Day in the Life of Web 2.0”, I was both excited and frightened by the enormity of Web 2.0. I’m excited about the great opportunity to be a part of this great paradigm shift in education while at the same time I’m frightened because I realize the change has already happened and I’m just now becoming a part of it. I’m not sure when life changed so and where was I when this all happened?
My mind raced as I read this article thinking of all the different ways that I too could use blogging, podcasts, videos, and wikis (whatever this is) to teach my classes. I loved the practical examples used that I could “borrow” and adapt to any area that I may teach. For the past several years, I’ve known that the old way of teaching was on its way out, but I see now that its gone. Through the use of technology, teaching has become more fast-paced, interactive, and engaging more than ever before and I want to be a part of that. No…I will be a part of this.
