Web 2.0 Learning Opportunity workshops in Zambia
The In Service Training Trust (ISTT), in collaboration with the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) organize in June, July and September 'Web 2.0 Learning Opportunity workshops' in Lusaka, Zambia.
Technological innovation is taking place at a breath-taking pace. Simple, open source internet-based applications and services designed to enhance on-line collaboration are now available to the wider public at little or no cost at all. These new online technologies known as Web 2.0 applications - sometimes called ‘social media’ - enable people to collaborate to create, share and publish information.
Introducuction to web 2.0 applications
Participants will be introduced to selected web 2.0 applications and will learn how to use them hands-on.The Learning Opportunity will cover advanced online searching, getting information served via alerts and RSS, collaborating remotely using wikis and Google Docs, using VoIP, online mapping and social media. Participants will get a chance to see what others have done, get hands-on experience on how to use innovative applications, and assess how they could adopt these innovations within the context of their work and organisation.These Learning Opportunities form part of CTA initiatives that support development partners in networking, accessing and disseminating information more effectively.
The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation EU-ACP (CTA) has a mandate to facilitate access to and dissemination of information in the fields of agriculture and rural development in 78 countries in Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific (ACP). Supporting the adoption of Web 2.0 applications represents a great opportunity for meeting it.
