    Classroom2.0: Twitter, del.icio.us and participatory learning diigo it ShareThis Published at February 10, 2008 in Education and Technology. Print This Post Email This Post twitpost.jpg I do not use a textbook. It is not that I dislike textbooks. It is that my textbook is the web. My textbook is YOU and ME and NOW. Instead of a book, I add all relevant readings, videos or examples to my course delicious bookmarks. That's my virtual, live, textbook - licensed under Creative Commons. And students don't have to blow 60 bucks on it either. And they can subscribe to this textbook using their favourite feed reader. And unlike textbooks, social bookmarking tools enable and activate inquiry, curiosity and ownership of knowledge acquisition. Right now v. back then As I explained to my class, the most important stuff to know about the web is what's happening RIGHT NOW. I may share a video or article in a couple of weeks that has yet to be written. Course readings are not mandatory - because I share most of the stuff in-class but secondary. If students are confused or if they want to dig deeper, they've got Youtube tutorials, how to's and hundreds of articles and research supporting everything I'm talking about in the course.
