I really had no idea there was a difference between web 1.0 and 2.0, or really what they were at all until I explored the differences and looked into some of the ways they are being used in education. My understanding now is that 2.0 allows the consumer (me) to contribute content to others (you) and vice versa. This is great!  What I think is probably the most interesting part about what I have been learning regarding the impact of 2.0 and the internet lately is the dramatic impact it has had on education. My first thought was even this class and this master's program, it's all online. When I was in high school I would have never thought I was going to be able to attend graduate school through an online program. According to the EdTech Times Staff that wrote an article entitled, "How the internet is revolutionizing education," 75% of higher learning institutions have online learning in their long-term plans and by 2019 it is actually estimated that 50% of all classes taught will be delivered online. What is just as powerful is the fact that today you don't have to be a member of the elite to get an education, anyone with an internet connection can educate themselves.
