Mens jeg er inne på sosial web, læremidler m.m. kan jeg jo vise til denne undersøkelsen fra U.S.A om bruk av web 2.0 i klasserommet. Undersøkelsen viser at det er et stykke fra uttalte holdninger og syn på web-bruk og faktisk bruk. De 9 hovedfunnene er som følger:
- The nation’s district administrators are overwhelmingly positive about the impact of Web 2.0 on students’ lives and their education.
- Keeping students interested and engaged in school is the top priority for Web 2.0 in America schools.
- The majority of district administrators believe that student use of Web 2.0 should be limited to participation on approved educational Web sites.
- The majority of school districts ban social networking and chat rooms while allowing prescribed educational use for most of the other Web 2.0 tools.
- While curriculum directors report low levels of general use of Web 2.0, they describe significant opportunities in curricula and teaching materials.
- Curriculum directors reported that Web 2.0 will be used most effectively in social studies, writing, science, and reading at all grade levels.
- District administrators, the persons responsible for decision making on Web 2.0 in schools, are more passive than active users in the Web 2.0 space.
- Web 2.0 is outpacing the capacity of
K-12 education to innovate.
- The use of these tools in American classrooms remains the province of individual pioneering classrooms.
