Second slideshow: Education 2.0

  • Lack of inspiration (educators)
  • Lack of motivation (students)
  • But we can find motivation and inspiration online
  • e.g. Ted Talk
  • Why? We’re changing (communication, students, even children)
  • We’re digital natives.
  • Many examples, statistics about education and its problems
  • “If you want to teach me, you first have to reach me”
  • Wikipedia, Quiz.md, mind mapping, slideshare, simulations, thinkanatomy.com, twitter, friendfeed, and many more

Take-home message: The web is full educational resources. Let’s start using them.
