The Web's second phase puts users in control

We have often discussed Web 2.0 here. So it is interesting to see it emerging into the mainstream media.

This article in the Guardian outlines all of the uses that I normally talk about when presenting sessions on the topic. While it summarises the 'how to' issues and focuses on 'what the technology can do in education' it is a good introduction piece for people new to this area.

It reminded me of something Ewan made me aware of some time ago. A book written by contributors in the UK, including Ewan and edited by Terry Freedman looking at the use of Social Software in Schools (note this link is to a PDF file, so may take some time to load), but all of the material would be equally relevant to us in HE.
