Web 2.0 in the Workplace

If you have ever struggled to explain to students, parents, colleagues, or bosses how web 2.0 can become an important part of professional development, take a look at this short slide show from Sacha Chua. Sacha Chua blogs about all types of web 2.0 related topics including how new technology influences and fits into the workplace. (Thanks to Skip Z for the tip via Twitter).

Applications for Education
The lesson that high school students should take away from this slide show is that everyone is watching what you do in web 2.0. As students prepare for job interviews or college admissions interviews, reminding them to consider carefully what they've posted on Facebook, Myspace, or elsewhere and decide if they should leave that information for all of the world to see.
