Web 2.0 tools, Reality and Powerpoint

I just read the article on Knowledge Quest on Ethics From 1.0 to 2.0: Standing Outside the Box. One of the points that it made was just as students use the library for pleasures (e.g. fiction books), they should be able to use the computers for pleasure (e.g. surfing, etc). It seems a contradiction to what I observed in SLMCs over the past month. Very few of the teachers/schools seem to be using Web 2.0 tools in their teaching repertoire, whether due to the students not having access to computers at home or they did not have enough time to cover it. However, the computer usage of the students in the LMC was mostly for fun or researching information for papers. They did not seem overly restricted.
I am working on my powerpoint presentation about blogs-Who knew there was so much information available on it!
