LEARNtec Forum Austria 2008
End of this week Learntec Austria 2008 is going to take place in Vienna. I am going to give a short talk on “How to learn in the social semantic web” (in German) and I am already excited, because I can discuss some interesting questions: How has the process of learning changed over the last few years? Why is there such a big gap between all the new possibilities like “Learning Communities”, “Collaborative Platforms”, “Enterprise 2.0” and the reality of Learning in all kinds of organisations?
I have done a lot of teaching in the last few years (especially at Universities of Applied Sciences) and in reality there is no systematic approach how New Media is used, neither for teaching at schools nor for continuing education at most companies.
But as time passes by more and more students and employees are fully aware of platforms like elgg, busuu or helpful search tools like cluuz.
Soon they will be asking: Why do we still moodle around?
