Web2.0 Classrooms versus learning

Web 2.0 Classrooms Versus Learning?

Here´s an interesting discussion about using technology as a tool and the process of learning. There are many for and against this issue, two videos in particular are mentioned: 1) Networked Student and 2)From Questions to Concepts. However, I don´t see this as much of a debate. I think most would agree that technology has a place in most educational experiences, but that it depends a lot on the course, teacher, student, and technology available. These videos show a variety of ways that technology could be used or adapted to different types of classes, but the real issue has more to do with pedagogical development and less to do with technological development.
