I have read everything I can possibly get a hold of on Web 2.0 and integrating technology into education. I have attended conferences, held PD sessions for teachers and spoke to so many people I have lost count. What's the problem then? The pace of educational change seems to be so slow compared to technological change. I am beginning to wonder if, inside the walls of schools, the 21st century is really here?
But, I see the future of education. I read the blogs and listen to the podcasts. I am excited that my own teaching methods are catching on. Someone has to be the trailblazer. I think all of us on Classroom 2.0 are trailblazers in our own ways. We need to build on this. Talk about it in staff meetings, among friends, to anyone who will listen.
We need to bring the system, kicking and screaming, into the 21st century. There is my 2 cents worth...
