;=) For simplification, spend your time focusing only on one Web 2.0 Application. Pick a lesson and show how you would use this tool to teach a lesson in a Virtual Elementary, Middle or High School.

Sincerely,

Craig

Pros

 Expressions coined in Urban Youth have made their way into mainstream education because of the emergent uniqueness of expressing ideas that are unique to the culture. According to Palloff in Defining and Redefining Community, online community is defined by differentiation and specialization of interests in cyberspace. Urban Youth is a specialization of Youths career interests and Language is one way of expressing these unique concepts that convey messages among its members.

For more information concerning online communities

 All members of specialized communities use language to become an exclusive member of their profession. Whether it is medicine, computer science or mathematics. People who engage in this activity must learn these unique definitions for the purposes of working and communicating within that discipline or profession. Learning the urban language gives you access and exclusive membership to their community.

Cons

 Expressions in Urban Youth compete for instructional time. Since youth normally focus on interests that are peer related, time is prioritized to memorizing and differentiating urban youth curriculum and activities. Getting in and being recognized by ones peers is more important as a priority than learning about the specialized language of physics. Student become less focused on global curriculum and occupy their time with local knowledge about how to survive. In addition, music is such a powerful force that speaks to across many generations through expressing the human condition.

 Media provides the new curriculum for our urban youth and students become preoccupied with the glamor of an easier way of what they perceive of producing capital. People unify when they hear stories about the urban community. Stories are so powerful that urban youth stress believe song writing will lead to riches and fame. Hip Hop becomes their local heroes which replaces Newton, Einstein and Edison. Our National Curriculum like American Idol reinforces that becoming a star leads to riches and fame.
