RBG as a Web 2.0 Education / Black Think Tank Trailblazer


Web 2.0 is a term describing the trend in the use of World Wide Web technology and web design that aims to enhance creativity, information sharing, and, most notably, collaboration among users. These concepts have led to the development and evolution of web-based communities and hosted services, such as
blogs, podcasts, wikis, social networking sites, sharing of bookmarks, VoIP and P2P services. RBG Street Scholars Think has taken these innovations to the next level. Namely,you will quickly notice that RBG Street Scholars Think Tank flows seamlessly across websites and social networks. Presently, we have 20 websites/networks comprising over 5000 RLOs (Reusable Learning Objects) and media assets all concentrically integrated and linked to hundreds of robust Afrikan-centered websites. The Wikizine pilots enable you to access and navigate everything without ever having to leave the college. The various integrated curricula that comprise the communiversity represent learning assets which are delivered via electronic dialogue between us (self-directed co-learners and expert tutors / facilitators of Afrikan descent). We all share a common purpose, depend upon each other and are accountable to each other for the collective’s and the school’s academic success. We are an interactive groups in which everyone actively communicates and negotiates higher learning activities with one another within a contextual framework facilitated by online tutors / experts / elders and ancestors. The entire school is about us, by us and for us–Afrikan Peoples Development / socially, politically, economically, educationally and morally.

One of the main objectives of our research and action program is to assess the impact of web 2.0 trends on the field of learning and education for the masses of Afrikans in America and to see how more Afrikans in America can gain access and skill in using web 2.0 innovations in the domain of learning. The rapid growth of social computing or web 2.0 applications and supporting technologies , both in terms of number of users/subscribers and in terms of usage patterns leads to the fact that the phenomena are also increasingly being used in the educational field and for learning purposes at the most prestigious colleges and universities . Thus, RBG Street Scholars Think Tank is a trailblazer in Afrikan centered education as our work is of the same scholarship as the university, but presented in a way that is accessible to the masses.
As we continue to increase our folk’s access and training we will enable a revolutionary types of learning and teaching (formal, non-formal and informal), that will serve as an important driver of innovation in learning/ teaching.

The advent of web 2.o has revolutionizes the education world for New Afrikan people.


We must continue to be receptive to the insights and strategies of the anointed and renowned among us, past and present, but now is the time to penetrate and jump-start the wisdom of the people, the unsung, unseen and unheard, including those Langston Hughes once dubbed the “misbred, misread and misled.” Thus Langston anticipated the words of his fellow alumnus, Kwame Nkrumah, of Pennsylvania’s Lincoln University.

“Go back to the people; live with them, learn from them, love them.
Start with what they know, build on what they have.”
