Web 2.0 Upgrade. Plug Me In.

I found this fantastic case for upgrading teachers to web 2.0 on The Teacher Chronicles, via Twitter. However if schools and classrooms are not equipped with the computers and internet connections that compare with the business world, how do we prepare them for this future? How can we expect teachers to be web 2.0 literate, when our teaching and learning environments do not support web 2.0? Is it the teachers themselves, the schools, the Ministry of Education, or the universities that are keeping education behind the times? Web 2.0 is a big step for many, so as the only web 2.0 teacher in my school, what can I do? What do you do?
