At the Janet Workshop,  Loughborough, 26th –27th November 2007,  I mentioned a number of urls within my talk on Web2.0 / Student2.0. They are posted below:

The Horizon Report is at http://www.nmc.org/pdf/2007_Horizon_Report.pdf  And Vicky Davis’ excellent media-rich reading of the report is here; http://www.techlearning.com/blog/2007/03/a_superwave_is_on_the_horizon.php

The MIT offering is here: http://scratch.mit.edu/. And Carnegie Mellon’s ALICE is here; http://www.alice.org/  

The YouTube video I used came from Michael Wesch Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropoloy at Kansas State University. It’s teh same one I used recently at the HEAnet conference. It went up about a month ago and looks at student 2.0(American edition) ( http://youtube.com/watch?v=dGCJ46vyR9o).  His seminal earlier one on Web 2.0 is there also (http://youtube.com/watch?v=6gmP4nk0EOE).

The sequence on First Year HE identity / lifehistory is modelled heavily on the work of Mary Madden, from the Pew Internet & American Life Project. The graphic relating to kids’ school experience is from a recent eTwinning presentation by Enel Mägi of the TIgerLeap Foundation, Estonia.
