My First Podcast -- A Literature Review on Web 2.0

Welcome to my Podcast Station.

Literature Resource 

This week, we have read these two articles of Web 2.0, which is "the future of education". We are getting familiar with services,  applications, features, and educational values in Web 2.0. I love reading them, because they are very informative and illuminating. This podcast is a literature review about them. I think I still need more time to digest and develop them...Thank you for listening...

New thoughts on Web 2.0 from Bakhtinian view

With the development of internet, the way people perceive and generate information has greatly changed. For example, since the advent of web 2.0 services, like blogs, youtube, and social networks, people not only can get information online, but also become more connected. Dialogues in this digital age harness the power of the learning community with a blending of world views. Users have become more and more in charge of the information sharing, evaluation, and creation process and the networks enable them to interact and have all sorts of communication on this open cyber arena. Individuals act as agents, participating in the learning activities and constructing new knowledge in a more personalized way. In addition, these participant-generated information are available 24/7 and open to those who have the access to the internet, hence making it possible for readers to experience the heteroglossia in this changing world and consolidate, integrate, and synthesize a complex unity from a hybrid of utterances.
