On Monday, September 29, Harold Jarche, Tony Karrer and I are opening the doors on a free 6-week learning event that will help people get up to speed on social media and how it can be used to support learning. The "course" is sponsored by Work Literacy and the eLearning Guild, in part as a run-up to DevLearn 2008. But don't worry--everyone is welcome.
Each week we will share new activities that will allow you to explore different Web 2.0 tools and discuss their implications for learning. The activities can be done at your own pace and will be hands-on.
The program topics and schedule...
|09/29/2008||Introduction to Social Networks|
|10/06/2008||Free your Favorites / Bookmarks|
|11/03/2008||Implications / Summary|
Anyone can sign up for the course, so we'd love it if you'd spread the word, particularly to your friends and colleagues who may be interested in exploring Web 2.0 and learning.
We're suggesting that anyone who's interested in joining us can start by signing up for the Ning network we're using for the event. That's also where you can find more information on our plan. If anyone has a problem with creating a profile, etc., email me and I'll see what I can do to help.
Please feel free to email this info to anyone you know who might be interested. And of course we'd love it if you'd blog about it to get the word out to as wide an audience as possible. We're also looking for your thoughts on how to get the info out to people who are not online--any ideas?
