      Steve H..bmpSteve Hargadon believes that the read/write Web, or what we are calling Web 2.0, will culturally, socially, intellectually, and politically have a greater impact than the advent of the printing press. In a world of unlimited content our relationship with information changes, and because of this we're about to have the biggest public discussion about education that we've had in decades. Who produces information? How is information distributed, filtered, and managed? How is learning changing, and what will be the role of formal education? Steve defines ten trends toward the use of Web 2.0 as an educational imperative, and then outlines seven important steps he thinks educators can take now to prepare themselves and their students for the changes ahead.
