Two people I respect greatly as purveyors and thinkers regarding new web technologies, Kathleen Gilroy and Bill Ives, are coming together to provide an intensive learning experience on Learning 2.0.
What is Learning 2.0? It's the idea that the web is changing from one that is driven by user searching and initiative, to one that is more amenable to subscription services for information compilation, etc. Learning 2.0 also recognizes that new web-based technologies are becoming available that provide instructional designers more tools for learning design. Learning 2.0 also provides more opportunities for groups to support each other's learning.
Here's what the organizers say you will learn:
- How new “2.0” technologies and services, including weblogs, podcasts, wikis, and aggregators, can be deployed for learning programs.
- How to build the new desktop: moving from browsing to searching to subscribing.
- How to plan for and build a learning 2.0 program.
- How to produce and distribute podcasts.
- How to motivate and manage networked learners.
- How to make the “wisdom of crowds” the outcome of your learning programs.
