Week 2 of our Work Literacy course on Web 2.0 for Learning professionals has kicked off and this week we're exploring social bookmarking. Just as with last week's assignments, we've set up a variety of ways for people to participate, ranging from Spectator, to Joiner/Collector, to Creator. Already the Forums are lighting up with discussions on how to make the most effective use of Delicious (the primary tool we're focusing on using) and another Forum has started up to explore Diigo. If you haven't signed up to join us yet, it's not to late.
As Tony pointed out yesterday, the group has been tagging and sharing a ton of great resources, both through our primary tag (wlning) and through some more specific tags that will help us with next week's module on blogging:
We've also had people sharing what they learned during last week's module on social networking, which has been instructive for us as facilitators and helpful to participants in creating something of a reflective loop for themselves.
Webinar on Blogging and Reflective Practice--October 14
We're really excited to announce that Paul Lowe, Course Director, MA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography, London College of Communication, will be conducting a live webinar for the Work Literacy Community on October 14, 2008 at 7 p.m. (GMT)/3 p.m. (Eastern US). You can learn more about the event here and you can sign up to attend here. The webinar is free and all members are invited to attend. If you're not a member of Work Literacy, you can go here to sign up. There's no obligation to participate in the community--you can just sign up for the webinar.
I'm really excited about this, as regular readers know I'm very interested in using blogs for reflective practice. This should be a great session!
