Should We Be Teaching Web 2.0?

I can remember the first time I used the Internet for research.  I can remember the first time I connected with others and created my new network for learning.  That was back in the late 90’s.  It was an empowering experience as I looked into the crystal ball of what my career in education would be. Luckily at that time I had a nice computer (at that time it has 1gig hard drive and about 32mb or ram) with lightning speed Internet access of my 56k modem.  The bottom line is that it completely changed they way I saw myself in this world.  This was truly an empowering experience that all students should be able to go through.  Do you think we are meeting the needs of the 21st century learner through our current instructional practices?  This is a great presentation that I found on Slideshare.

    When I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked
    on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment
    is added I recieve four emails with the exact same comment.
    There has to be a way you can remove me from that service?
