Jump to: navigation, search

Hi all,

What are your views and suggestions on using the web 2.0 for academic purposes at PNG University of Technology?

Its an open discussions portal and you can suggest better solutions to the advantages and disadvantages towards this.

Thank you.

Teaching and learning must go beyond the four walls of the classroom. Twenty first century education must integrate all effective approaches and strategies to learning with the end view of providing the learner the needed tools to become productive global citizens. To this end, hybrid education will include both synchronous and asynchronous methodologies, that is, both face-to-face interaction between the teacher and the student and the use of the information highway that offers endless options using search engines on the web like wikipedia and various Web 2.0 platforms (can be downloaded) as software)available like WordPress, Dropbox and MyDrive.

I suggest we should be using the web 2.0 as we are advancing towards the Computer world. PNG Unitech as the Technological University in the South Pacific and the only Technological University in the country we should be using web 2.0. However every development come with packages which one cannot deny that fact.

The good side of it is that; 1. Technology is improving 2. Be part of the international Community 3. Saves time and cost effective 4. Paper less

The Bad side of it is that:

1. Makes students lazy 2. Weakens students minds 3. Loss of business opportunity 4. Hacking of personal documents

This is what I think.

The first think we should do is make sure that all people/staff members to be involved in discussions, are invited and have access to the portal available to enter the different points of view. Otherwise there may be points of view not considered. So, should somehow make everybody take training on the use of this software tool.

Hi Decka,

Web 2.0 is a very useful tool for teaching and learning, it only requires consistent use to master the technology. I would recommend this to every staff in Unitech specially for the academics.

The disadvantage that I see is the internet connections of the University. We need to make sure the reliability of the network, otherwise the services of Web 2.0 tools will not be as effective as is expected.

Thank you for the training.
