Upon reading chapter 5 of Web 2.o new tools, new schools, the idea of a global learning system has been running in my mind. The primary quote and paragraph that started my brain to focus on this idea is found on page 103. “Learning has gradually moved from the individual as learner to learning as participation in the social world, including numerous ways individuals are shaped by and shape the surrounding world.” Our social world is changing and will continue to change with the advancements of technology. For instance, the use of Podcasts, twitter, facebook and more has innovated the social world into a large conglomeration area of information. For a small time frame a few years ago, many educators and much of the world thought the young generations social skills were decreasing when really the young generations were developing the social world into something it has never been; a global social world of vast diverse information. I find as educators, we should continue this development and use technology to lead youth into a professional force learning from teachers, people and students from around the world!
