The other day I was speaking with a colleague who has been teaching Social Studies for 25 years. We were discussing some of the technologies that are available (Moodle, Wikis, Blogging, Second Life,Click Response Technology, CellPhone responses, etc.) He had a very valid question, "Why should these technologies be utilized for discussion? Why can't the kids just raise their hands and participate through verbal discussion when called on as well? Are we setting an unrealistic scenario for them when they go out into the work force? Its doubtful that their boss is going to ask them to Moodle a work order." I know this discussion might seem contrary to the goals of the Web 2.0 organization, but I saw a lot of valid arguments from this teacher. What does the community think?
