Was alerted to this post on my reader feed, and now it would seem to be posted by another PIDP practitioner! Interesting view to the future.
I found this absolutely fantastic table created by Dr. John Moravec and HAD to share. It is a concise, meaningful comparison between web 1.0, web 2.0 and web 3.0 and how each of these look in the classroom.

As you can see, web 3.0 truly puts technology in the hands of the students, and focuses on using technology to help students make their education their own. It is no longer about churning out employees, but about encouraging students to be lifelong learners and engaging parents, teachers and students into a larger learning community.
