This interactive Discussion Forum will take place at 12.30 on Day 1 and will be chaired by Lawrie Phipps.
This debate will focus on two polarised viewpoints.
The technologies are providing new ways of engaging in discourse between peers, offering new opportunities to find knowledge and exercise creativity and the sheer breadth of the technology creates something that most people can engage with at some level.
The technologies are disruptive to the students’ learning and staff time, they pick up information that we haven’t given them, off the internet, and the technology is everywhere like an omnipresent technodeity.
The purpose of the debate is unpack the wider issues around web2.0 and understand why these two positions may represent views of individuals in institutions. So even if you are a web 2.0 evangelist, try and put on the opposition hat and discuss it from a different perspective. The greater the debate the more rigorous the outcomes.
