Web 2.0 for Teaching and Learning

"In sum then, the teacher's task as communicator, model, and identification figure can be supported by a wise use of a variety of devices that expand experience, clarify it, and give it personal significance. There need be no conflict between the teacher and the aids to teaching. There will be no conflict if the development of aids takes into account the aims and the requirements of teaching. The film or television show as gimmick, the television system without substance or style in its programs, the pictorgraphically vivid portrayal of the trivial - these will help neither the teacher nor the student. Problems of quality in a curriculum cannot be dodged by the purchase of sixteen millimeter projection equipment."
