Blog your answers to the focus questions ‘How are you feeling’ in the What is Web 2.0? module, here.

Are you feeling a bit ‘freaked out’ by the pace of change in technology? What are you most worried about? Why? What are your concerns about what’s going on online these days? What are you afraid of letting go of? What do you think all this Web 2.0 stuff will mean for our culture? Our society? Education? Our ways of being human? What are your fears founded upon? Evidence, information and reasoning or gut feeling?

Go through each ‘mindset’ (Lankshear and Knobel (pdf)) line by line, below. Find examples of each mindset, e.g., ‘Product as artefact = book; Product as service = blog site”. Which mindset do you belong to and when? What about your students: which mindset are they most comfortable with? What are the values inherent in each mindset? What about the problems?
