Conference opens with Keynote by Will Richardson A Web of
Connections: Why the Read/Write Web Changes Everything
Having the world of information at our fingertips on the Web was in
itself a powerful transformation, but being able to contribute our
own knowledge and ideas and collaborate in the construction of
content is even more powerful. In this environment, traditional ideas
about schooling and learning are challenged at every turn. We have
over a billion potential teachers, and we learn through the
conversations that this new Web facilitates more than the content
that is delivered to us. Information and knowledge is no longer
scarce, and neither are constant. In almost every way, this Web
changes the way we must think about our roles as educators and
learners in the 21st Century.
