Education 2.0: Optimizing for Findability and Discussion

21st century educators must wake up and break out of the old walls of the academy (link is to a PDF):

Educational content needs to be digitized and put into the open Net. Educational resources that remain nondigital and offline will atrophy in the vigorous environment of content digitization of the present and future.

The concept of searching for Net content is morphing into techniques of engaging findable emergent knowledge and ideas. E-educators can optimize content for findability, utilizing their academic expertise and authority. Educators can also participate in optimizing educational resources for use in social networks and connecting the global commons through syndication and viral cognitive connectivity.

What is holding educators back? The tools are at their finger tips.
