Is Education 2.0 in sight yet?

Volumes have been written and spoken about ICT's role in economics, politics and society. Education being at the intersection and a subset of those domains cannot resist the "onslaught" of the transforming power of ICT. Run a search of your favorite school in places like Myspace, Flickr or Youtube to see what I mean. I tried it once. I keyed in [ateneo grade school] in Friendster's search tool and got more than 1000 entries. It seems like the venerable 3Rs are taking a new form: from Reading, 'Riting, 'Rithmetic to Real, Rich and Relevant. Would be nice to see how educators manage this evolution.
