One of the problems of technology is the degree of assimilation the people have. For the last two years, the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya has organized several roundtables and events where social media and web 2.0 were very important topics. The discussion about web 2.0 was always between the staff members interested on the idea of a useful social web, which is not a very big percentage of all the University staff.
This year, the UOC UNESCO Chair assumed the commitment of providing this knowledge to those UOC teachers and researches interested on web 2.0 that didn’t have the time or the chance to surf the net and start using social media.
We are on the middle of that action right now. The picture above was shot about 15 minutes ago, during the celebration of the Web 2.0 Workshop at the UOC. Please, excuse the low queality of the pic, it’s a mobile one.
Right now we are listening to Peter Bihr, consultant on social media, and we will start using some of the most popular web 2.0 services in some minutes, after a very short theoric contextualitation and a very interesting public discussion.
As soon as the workshop finishes, I’ll try to publish Peter’s slide on this blog. Stay tuned.
