The draft timetable for ALT-C 2008 has been published and we now have a time and day for the Hood 2.0 – it’s a Web 2.0 World out there workshop.
It will be on Tuesday 9th September at 11.30am to 1.00pm
It will be a workshop that will explore how using Web 2.0 services can enable us to rethink the digital divide.
Gloucestershire College have been using Web 2.0 to enhance and enrich the learning process for a wide variety of learners across the breadth and depth of the curriculum. They have developed a range of learning scenarios and activities that are integrated into the learning process and support a diverse range of learners.
This workshop will demonstrate how Web 2.0 can be used to solve some of the issues facing diverse learners in this era of Facebook. YouTube, Twitter and then some…
It will explore how we need to address the pedagogical needs to drive the use of Web 2.0 services and not be blinded or awed by the technology of Web 2.0
It will demonstrate and allow participants to discuss and debate different learning scenarios and activities which utilise Web 2.0 services.
Web 2.0 services will be used to demonstrate these scenarios.
Should be fun.
