How does the use of web 2.0 tools with my ESOL learners meet Knowle’s 6 assumptions for adult learning?

I was wondering why the discussion board hadn’t really worked with the MEd. Very few people have contributed – I’m one of the main ones. I think it’s because it’s an added extra and isn’t really fully integrated into the course; the tutors hardly mention it either. We see each other face to face in sessions, most people are working full-time so it’s just another additional thing. If it was a fully DL course and/or the discussion board was a formal requirement and the tutors were more actively involved then it might work better.
Kolb & digital learning, also various other educational theorists and how their models fit or don’t with digital learning.
Wheeler says that Kolb’s model of experiential learning is obselete in today’s digital age. Kolb’s model focuses on individual constructivism and ignores today’s social constructivist technologies.
