UNESCO Chair International Seminar 2007

1 December, 2007

‘Web 2.0 and Education’

The Chair is the ideal framework for the construction of international cooperation networks between higher education institutions that wish to share and enrich the acquired knowledge provided by the incorporation and use of e-learning in the different university dynamics. The UNESCO Chair in e-learning therefore has a clear desire to play a central role in imposing the use of ICT at the university level as an instrument for promoting equality in the digital world.

In this sense, this International Seminar was conceived as a framework for the dissemination and exchange of knowledge and experiences related to the relationship between University and e-learning. Its objective was to deepen the knowledge and analysis of the main elements and challenges that the University of the 21st century faces.

The IV International Seminar of the UOC UNESCO Chair in e-learning focused its work on the study of the effects on university educational paradigms of the tools derived from the birth, development and establishment of what has been called web 2.0, as well as of the new models of presence and publication of content on the Internet.
