I’m teaching another one of my 4-hour Introduction to Web 2.0 classes tomorrow, and I’m changing it up a bit.
Defining the conept of Web 2.0 to primarily non-techie librarians is HARD! So this time, I’m going into a bit more detail. This time, I have the class broken down this way:
1. Brief intro to web 2.0 through a couple of definitions and a little discussion
2. A new “Glue of Web 2.0” section, where I list commonalities of many web 2.0 products, like:
- RSS feeds
- ability to tag
- ability to comment
- user supplied content
- web as platform
… and I will give examples for each of those sections.
3. Then I’ll jump into specifics, and cover blogs, feed readers, flickr, bookmark managers, etc.
