You cannot talk about the impact of wikis, blogs, social bookmarking, tagging, even search unless you actually use them. That's precisely the problem staggering journalism right now, who is going to do the hard work of investigative journalism? How will internauts ensure that the information shared is credible? William Dutton popped similar questions in Journalism, the Internet, and Empirical Research. He says that many concerns exist not only in internet journalism but in the information consumption habits of people in any media. What about education? In education we are facing similar concerns!
We've missed the post of Harold Jarche in about his Web 2.0 for Learning Professionals. On September 23th he announced this online course which is in its second day because it started yesterday Monday 29th. "This is a six week (or is that six step?) program, covering the basics of Web 2.0 tools and methods, with room for the more experienced to join in and add their expertise to the mix."
Work Literacy is the place for this online event and over one hundred professionals are attending the course. You can still sign up and get the benefit of a FREE price tag.
