I’ve noticed that many “Web 2.0”-based learning experiences are not 21st century skills-based. For example, students can twitter about a novel but if their comments are simply plot summaries then they are not showing critical thinking. Likewise, many 21st century skills are not Web 2.0 based. Students can create a video reacting to a novel but if no one reacts to it or builds on it than it really is not Web 2.0 read-write based.
I think that we have to move from isolated thinking to more global thinking. We want to see 21st century skills developed through Web 2.0.
I share this preliminary draft of a grid in which we can look at both 21st century skills and Web 2.0 characteristics at the same time to see if we really have an intersection of the two.
