Research on Learning and Teaching with Web 2.0: Bridging Conversations
Greenhow, Christine; Robelia, Beth; Hughes, Joan E.
Educational Researcher, v38 n4 p280-283 May 2009
In the past decade, significant shifts have occurred in the nature of the Internet and the conceptualization of classrooms. Such shifts have affected constructs of learning and instruction and paths for future research. In this article, the authors build on three ideas set forth in comments on their article "Web 2.0 and Classroom Research: What Path Should We Take "Now"?" The authors believe that these comments, which extend ideas from their initial article, make important contributions to the vision for transformative scholarship and practice they outlined. Specifically, the authors discuss the professional development of teachers, considerations for building research capacity and social scholarship, and the importance of bridging divides to advance a common research agenda on learning and teaching with Web 2.0.
