The best minds on our planet are suggesting that the Internet will continue to be arguably the most influential invention of our time. We are in the midst of a highly dynamic and dramatically changing landscape. Where Web 1.0 made us consumers of information, Web 2.0 allowed us to be participators and creators. Web 3.0 and the Semantic Web technologies are beginning to play a larger and more significant role in the search and filtering of the content fire hose that teachers and students encounter each day. How will the semantic web influence our learning and teaching encounters on the web? What is the connection between meaning and data? Will search or discovery be the main driving force in the 3.0 information revolution? How will information and knowledge creation in a semantic-powered online world develop? This session will draw on Semantic Web research and developments and show how connecting, collaborating and networking in a Web 3.0 world is changing the ground-rules once again.
