Chris Dede: How Web 2.0 Tools are Transforming Learning and Knowledge

Chris Dede recorded this in 2008

"Web 2.0 media are redefining what and how we learn. In Wikipedia, knowledge is constructed by negotiating compromises among various points of view so how do we teach students to be experts on a topic?"

He mentions Jenkins' framework for new literacies

Play – experimenting with one's surroundings in problem-solving
Performance – adopting alternative identities for improvisation and discovery
Simulation – interpreting and constructing dynamic models of real-world processes
Appropriation – the ability to meaningfully sample and remix media content
Multitasking – scanning one's environment and shifting focus to salient details
Distributed cognition – fluently using tools that expand mental capacities
Collective intelligence – pooling knowledge with others towards a common goal
Judgement – evaluating the reliability of different information sources
Transmedia navigation – the ability to follow the flow of stories and information across multiple modalities
Networking – the ability to search for, synthesize, and disseminate information
Negotiation – the ability to travel across diverse communities, discerning and respecting multiple perspectives, and grasping and following alternative norms

Are these the graduate capabilities of the future?
