Web 3.0: I was invited by Vitalmeet to present my latest views on the future of the web in education, so I chose to talk about 'Web 3.0 - the way forward?' I promised I would post them up on my Slideshare site so they could gain access. My Web 3.0 Even more valuable for me, many people commented and shared their ideas to me, which led to to write further blog posts, and publish a second, related post entitled Web x.0 Web 3.0 slideshare blog Web 3.0

Digital literacy 8: Repurposing content

Learning with e's

The ability to repurpose, remix or otherwise reuse existing content is one of the key features of the social web. If content is already out there on the web, the logical choice would be to see if it can be reused, or even adapted or altered to suit your own needs. The ethos of the social web is that we share and share alike - why hoard knowledge or ideas if they can be of benefit to others? The web is changing rapidly, but copyright laws to many remain archaic and arcane.

The entire social web is founded on freely shared content. Prior to the social web, public sharing wasn''t that common a theme. Without his generosity of spirit, the Web would not be as popular as it is, because many of us simply wouldn''t be able to afford to participate. The arrival of YouTube, Flickr and Slideshare and of course Twitter, made it easier to share than ever. We teach our children that sharing is good.

Making connections

Seeded at the turn of the century, the social web phase of Internet development promoted connections, participation, networked sociality. The social web truly is a powerful communication technology. A vast array of user generated content, much of it very useful, is available for free use on numerous sites, including YouTube, Flickr, Vimeo and Slideshare. One major phenomenon of the last decade has undoubtedly been the global and exponential rise of social media.

But how to do it, when you are in danger of being lost in a tsunami of web content? Such tools enable users to share URLs of web resources they find interesting. Still another way to build up your PLN contacts is to visit the Slideshare site and search for topics that interest you. Many of the slidesets on Slideshare are presented under Creative Commons license for free use - but do check the wording to see what the licence allows you to do.

Now, for those who are unfamiliar with the Reform Symposium, let me explain: It's a 72 hour live web based symposium that follows the sun. In my slides (which as I write have topped 110,000 views on SlideShare) I mention the four trends that have been recognised in educational technology in the last 30 years. In the 1990s we witnessed the rise of the Internet and the rapid proliferation of web based content. But most are not yet connected to the Web.

You can record yourself with video i.e. via a web cam, or audio record or both. I wish they added Linkedin, which would then allow folks who do not want to use Slideshare as their sharing slide option. As you can see you can also allow folks to modify the mix under Creative Commons and also allow a discussion board. Open up any authoring tool (okay, most of them) and one item that you will see is the ability to add PowerPoint.

Klout, Peerindex and other social reputation measuring sites are constantly bombarding web users with statistics about their 'true reach', 'amplification' and 'influence'. This number is calculated among other things, on an analysis of my recent web activity on Twitter, Facebook and Google+ over the last 90 days.

This morning I looked at a presentation on SlideShare by the head of learning of an Irish insurance company. When we called them on it, their first defense was that they had found it on the web and couldn’t remember where.
