The Adventures of Miranda in the Brave New World: Learning in a Web 2.0 Millennium
Barnes, Cameron; Tynan, Belinda
ALT-J: Research in Learning Technology, v15 n3 p189-200 Sep 2007
This paper looks at the implications of Web 2.0 technologies for university teaching and learning. The latest generation of undergraduates already live in a Web 2.0 world. They have new service expectations and are increasingly dissatisfied with teacher-centred pedagogies. To attract and retain these students, universities will need to rethink their operations. New social technologies mean that universities have the chance to create a new generation of student-centred learning environments, to realize the idea of a University 2.0. The following discussion draws upon a fictional character in order to capture the possible futures of such a brave new world.
