         Along with the prevalence of distance education and increasing use of electronic  elements in traditional classroom teaching has come the realization that human interaction is as important in the virtual classroom as it is in the actual one. To respond to that need, a variety of software - commonly called social software - has been developed to facilitate student-teacher and peer-to-peer interaction. This literature review examines current definitions, thinking, and qualitative research about the various uses of social software in educational environments in order to establish a foundational overview for determining best practices for implementation and use of each type of software.

         This site is designed to serve as a resource to those who are using the WebQuest model to teach with the web. By pointing to excellent examples and collecting materials developed to communicate the idea, all of us experimenting with WebQuests will be able to learn from each other.

A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented activity in which most or all of the information used by learners is drawn from the Web. WebQuests are designed to use learners' time well, to focus on using information rather than looking for it, and to support learners' thinking at the levels of analysis, synthesis and evaluation. The model was developed in early 1995 at San Diego State University by Bernie Dodge with Tom March, and was outlined then in Some Thoughts About WebQuests.

         Early e-learning traded technology for human interaction. Now, the personal element is being added back in. New social software tools borrowed from business and the younger generations combine tech and touch for the best of all possible worlds (including virtual ones)

         The freshman composition course and its supporting course,    basic writing, have been largely conceived as "service courses" from    their inception, designed to initiate first-year students in the literacies that the academy requires of them.    Institutions issue the mandate, "Teach students to write," to English    departments and composition instructors. In doing so, they suggest that the    students, whom we might see as simply newcomers to a specific set of discourse    conventions, lack basic literacy skills.  This institutional mandate, "Teach students to write," begs    the question, "Write what?"

Unsworth, J. M. (2004). "The Next Wave: Liberation Technology." The Chronicle of Higher Education: 16.
         If the nineties were the e-decade (e-com-merce, e-business, e-publishing, eBay, E*Trade, etc.), the aughties are the o-decade (open source, open systems, open standards, open access, open archives, open everything). This trend, now unfolding with special force in higher education, reasserts an ideology, a meme, that has a continuous tradition traceable all the way back to the beginning of networked computing (in fact, as far back as Thomas Jefferson's famous defense of the principle that "ideas should freely spread from one to another over the globe"). Call this meme Liberation Technology. It has recently been adopted by some venerable institutions -- not only by some of the great public and private universities, but also by major private foundations -- and it means business.
