You can’t mistake my biology… January 26, 2010

Posted by N.C.OnlineTraining in Uncategorized.

Great story to think about when tackling We Media and Democracy A2’s – some students who sat their Biology exam this week were so horrified by the difficulty of the paper that they set up a facebook group to complain about it. Check the whole story here. Amazingly, the exam board – AQA – did actually respond to the protest, advising that they would bear the comments in mind when marking the work.

This is a fantastic example of what we in the Media world like to call Web 2.0, which literally references the “second” coming of the internet whereby blogs and social networking sites took over. In addition, this is a good illustration of how the We Media has enabled the media industry to become more democratic than before.
