Connecting the Classroom and the Library: How One School Uses Web-Based Library Projects to Build Information-Literacy Skills | The 21st Century | Scoop.it

Blogging About The Web 2.0 Connected Classroom: FInd The New and Best Web 2.0 Tools To Use with Go2Web20... | The 21st Century | Scoop.it

Go2Web20 is a site that I have known about for a while now that I check out on a regular basis to see what is new an hip out there in the world of Web 2.0.

A line in the latter paragraphs of this essay struck me as particularly true: "Twitter can considerably level the playing field: you are not on the podium or on a stage. It is not meant to be an auditorium, but a seminar room." Using social media requires a certain amount of vulnerability, a willingness to put oneself at risk--note I said using. Lurking, on the other hand, requires no investment of self. Are you a user or a lurker?
