My First Web 2.0 Presentation is Tomorrow



I’ve been getting ready for my first Web 2.0 presentation – should be fun! I thought others might be interested in my version… so here’s what I plan to do:

  1. Introduce the concept of Web 2.0 – definitions and descriptions
  2. Link it to Library 2.0, showing other links as well (ie., Law 2.0, media 2.0, etc) – just so attendees know they’re not alone in this learning curve!
  3. Explain RSS, RSS Feed Readers, and Blogs in a chunk – This provides a good intro to many of the essential elements of Web 2.0 – interactivity and feeds.
  4. Playtime – post in a blog, subscribe to it in bloglines, make a comment…
  5. Next chunk – Tagging, Flickr, and Bookmark Managers
  6. Playtime – look at my Flickr account, tag the photo I’ll take of them with my Treo, explore bookmark managers…
  7. Wikis – Define and explore – I’ll have everyone play around in a pbwiki.
  8. IM – define and explore – I might even IM someone using Meebo, so be warned anyone who’s on my buddy list!
  9. Last chunk – podcasting and videocasting – describe and explore. Possibly watch a videocast (if it downloads easily in the lab)
  10. Answer the “why would a library want to do these things” questions, and provide some easy “first steps.”

And, if you’re REALLY interested… here’s a PDF version of my Powerpoint presentation. Feel free to download it, use it, “borrow” the good bits (I certainly borrowed from others), etc. And – I’d love some feedback on it – let me know what you think!

Web 2.0, Library 2.0

    David,

    I did a 2 hour presentation on similar items this past weekend at Wayne State University in Detroit. Yours looks great. Some things I learned: 1. Play time takes twice as long as you expect. 2. PBWiki doesn’t like simultaneous editting of the same page 3. Bloglines activation requires a web-based email client (and some time) before using in a lab setting. Good luck. I want to pour over your stuff in greater detail!

    That’s like a great chunk of info to go over. I don’t know if anyone from my library system (Olathe Public Library) is going, but I hope someone is.

    That’ll teach me to hit “submit” without proofreading. That first “like” should, like, not be in there.

    Lots of Web 2.0 links and resources with some relevance to teaching and learning.
