                                Knowledge Base
                                Within the model of the teacher as developing
                                professional, this class
                                will fulfill the requirements of specialty knowledge and
knowledge in the area of integrating technology into school curriculums.
The teacher as a cognitive mediator, communicator, researcher, and
evaluator will be considered in the content of this course. As cognitive mediator, the
developing professional
will be able to help students become independent learners who construct meaning by
combining new
information with their own background knowledge. As communicator, the developing
professional is skilled
in modes of communication that will enable effective communication and collaboration
with other educators,
parents, and families. As researcher, the developing professional will be able to improve
educational practices
within the school setting, using an inquiry approach to serve students more effectively.
As evaluator, the
developing professional will be able to maximize students’ learning by using a full range
of formal and
informal information-gathering processes in order to respond appropriately to student
individual differences.

                               Web 2.0
                       Evolution of Web 1.0,        Ordering Pizza in the
Web 1.0 vs Web 2.0
                        Web 2.0 to Web 3.0                 Future

  Web 1.0 is a retronym (a word introduced because an
existing term has become inadequate) which refers to the
  state of the World Wide Web, and any website design
style used before the advent of the Web 2.0 ... Wikipedia
Web 2.0 = Web 2.0 websites allow users to do more than
just retrieve information. They can build on the interactive
  facilities of "Web 1.0" to provide "Network as platform"
  computing, allowing users to run software-applications
            entirely through a browser. - Wikipedia
     Web 3.0 = Some Internet experts believe the next
  generation of the Web -- Web 3.0 -- will make tasks like
your search for movies and food faster and easier. Instead
 of multiple searches, you might type a complex sentence
 or two in your Web 3.0 browser, and the Web will do the
rest. In our example, you could type "I want to see a funny
 movie and then eat at a good Mexican restaurant. What
 are my options?" The Web 3.0 browser will analyze your
response, search the Internet for all possible answers, and
            then organize the results for you.

That's not all. Many of these experts believe that the Web
    3.0 browser will act like a personal assistant. As you
      search the Web, the browser learns what you are
 interested in. The more you use the Web, the more your
browser learns about you and the less specific you'll need
to be with your questions. Eventually you might be able to
 ask your browser open questions like "where should I go
for lunch?" Your browser would consult its records of what
you like and dislike, take into account your current location
 and then suggest a list of restaurants. - How Stuff Works
