Start date: Jan 1, 2012,
The EdWeb2Work Network project will improve the use of Web2.0 tools in education and the world of work. It is also building tools that will allow educators and employers see how effective Web2.0 tools are in improving education and working efficiencies. The project will create a network between stakeholders in the education and work sectors that will examine how both should be using Web2.0 in the education and work environments. Web2.0 and Enterprise 2.0 present great opportunities and challenges for educators and employers. The potential for autonomous creativity, research, communication and sharing by all stakeholders is a unique and unparalleled opportunity. Web2.0 may offer the fastest channel to tap human potential across all levels and raise productivity and growth in education and work. The mission for Europe is how to retain and increase its critical advantages by ensuring that its students and workers can utilize Web2.0 within their education and work. The objectives The project will build a sustainable network that will: • Review the academic literature to build an empirical template that can be used to create benchmarks to assess the effectiveness of existing and new Web2.0 tools. • Identify and analyse the current and future needs of stakeholders in education and work and how Web2.0 tools can be utilised to support these needs. • Examine existing uses (education and work) and build a set of best practices and case studies that show how various Web2.0 tools could be used. • Establish and maintain a central repository containing relevant research, best practice guides and case studies, and training materials that can be used to make informed choices. Work plan Mixed working groups of educators and employers will study how the new possibilities can be used within differing sectors and what each sector’s needs are and how the tools can be used to satisfy these needs. 3 network conferences will be held during the project and local groups formed.
