web 2.0 landscapes – difficult indeed!September 28, 2007
We are running our course of selfdirecting with web 2.0 tools vol. 2
This time we have ‘green’ master students, and our course is their first try at master level.
If last year developing the tool landscapes seemed to be moderately difficult, then this year a strange idea is duplicating itself in the web. Personal landscape means for them – ‘my collection of tools’, and not ‘my landscape of information flow’. So, from 23 students we have received around 15 ‘tool collection’ images. I think that the main paradigm shift in web 2.0 thinking is, is starting to see ‘my collection of separate tools’ as ‘my distributed landscape‘ where i can coordinate information flows. Here is a little paradigm shift on its way, but still at half way. Text is describing mostly of what one can do with this tool, which is affordances for this student for performing some actions.
One example can be seen from here
