Not Just Information Appliances

So says Gary Stager, and I can’t but agree:

The problem is that although I understand and use Web 2.0 tools, I am less sanguine about their potential to revolutionize education. I believe that the emphasis on using computers as information appliances represents a tiny portion of the computer’s power.

Which doesn’t mean I don’t find the whole area of social software and network becoming intertwingled with the learning environment… just that I think computers provide affordances that include so much more.
