This paper calls for the development of teaching and learning 2.0 communities and an end to the isolationist pedagogical practice commonly found in most U.S. educational institutions. Based upon the principles and lessons learned from the successful development of Web 2.0, Library 2.0, and Classroom 2.0 this paper describes a six year evolution of a trans-generational teaching and learning community that brings together pre-service graduate students; in-service K-12 educators, and their students; undergraduate students enrolled in a Web design course, and two university faculty in an attempt to realize the full potential of collective intelligence
