To me it seems plausible that a course’s faculty member publishes course specific content, references, activities, etc. to a course site, but the students aggregate that (and other resources they may find) within their own PLE, a wiki, a blog, iGoogle, a basic web page, etc. Really just like they used to with their own notes, folders, binders, lockers, desks, etc. These independent sites (maybe we call them “cites?”) can also be shared between students as course resources.

I noticed here that there is a link to Digg on this page. I wonder how such tools could be used to identify student “cites” as resources for the class? Could these be referenced and scored similarly where those that received multiple visits, comments, referrals, rankings, be scored (valued?) higher just as search engines, Digg, del.icio.us does. Is Education 3.0, Web 3.0 or Web2.0-2.0 (my Web2.0 “goes to eleven”) really all about integration and interoperability?

Great post (and I’m happy to have for once beaten Richard Wyles to the punch and posted the first comment - woohoo),

Just re-read the post, I did not mean to state that the current state of course management is “Derek’s model” rather that how Derek described the current status of course and content development was evident in the conference presentations. That’s what I get for waking up early to beat Richard in with a post…

Hi Patrick,

Just a quickish response to:

“Is Education 3.0, Web 3.0 or Web2.0-2.0 (my Web2.0 “goes to eleven”) really all about integration

and interoperability?”

Education 3.0, as Philip and I conceived it in our paper

( (External Link) )

is not a technology but a consequence of the emergence of technologies generally recognized as Web 2.0 (I suppose you could paraphrase Microsoft, and say Web 2.0 or better), as well as changes to the way in which individuals and institutions behave. This includes recognizing learning , as opposed to recognizing crude measures of having been taught (which is mostly what we do now with some exceptions).

There is a bit more on Education 3.0, including something on the framework of openness idea in my blog at (External Link)

Scroll down past the Sekuru and the Sharks (and perhaps past the pics I will be posting there tonight), past the twitter mashup, and you will find it there entitled “Challenges for Quality Assurance in an Education 3.0 world”. There is a slidecast as well as a PDF of the paper given at the UNESCO conference on Quality assurance.

Some of the keys to Education 3.0 are

  • students owning and managing their own learning;
  • aggregated courses are not the only way to get accredited learning;
  • institutional boundaries are more permeable;
  • processes are in place to recognize and accredit learning no matter what the source.

Hope this is useful.

Hi Derek,

Just had your blog passed onto me… seems we share more than similar perspectives, I’m from a once fishing village in rural New Brunswick.

what about nanotechnology for water purification

please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.

yes that's correct

industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
