Web2 Revolution, Education Revived?

Please find attached my presentation to the SEGfL Content Group, which looks at web 2.0 applications and trends and attempts to look at the potential impact on education. Of course many web 2.0 applications are being incorporated into Learning Platforms and members of the NEN use web 2.0 functionality in their innovative projects. But what other web 2.0 tools should we use or create next? and what is the next big thing on the horizon? My best guess is the Semantic web (web 3.0).What do you think?
