Web 2.0

What does the phrase Web 2.0 mean to you?

The phrase “Web 2.0” has been around for a while. However, if you have never heard the phrase, or if you have heard it but do not think you really understand it, then I recommend you do a Google search. I also recommend the short (just over 4 and half minutes long) YouTube video embedded in this post. The video is by Michael Wesch, Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology and Digital Ethnography at Kansas State University. To me, the implications identified at the end of the video are the topics of conversations that should be taking place in US schools if we want our next generation to be literate global citizens.
