Instructional Expectations Decrease • Only whole class, teacher-directed instruction • Student passivity and prizing and rewarding of silence in the classroom; classroom time devoted to fill-in-theblank worksheets and other “seatwork.” • One-way transmissions of information from teacher to student • Only role memorization of fact and details • Teachers thinly covering large amounts of material in every subject area • Tracking or leveling students into “ability groups” • Use of and reliance on standardized tests

Instructional Expectations Increase • Experiential, inductive, hands-on learning • Active learning in the classroom • Diverse roles for teachers, including coaching, demonstrating and modeling. • Emphasis on higher-order thinking, learning key concepts, and principles. • Deep study of a smaller number of topics • Grouping, collaborative activity • Choice for students • Attention to the varying learning styles and other needs of individual learners. -Zemeiman, Daniels, Hyde (1995)

Remember Web 2.0 is an attitude; it’s about both taking ownership and sharing. The best way to share is to aggregate or come together. Imagine the entire school showcasing their learning at one site. Teachers could inspire through shared class projects; students could expand their audience; parents could feel closer to the learning process; and principals could bask in the glow of good public relations.
