Access to practical workshops

ICT : The social web revolution

The introduction of wikis, blogs and discussion groups represented the first movement of the social web revolution known as “social web 2.0 networks”. Everybody can express themselves on the web today, and this is a new and democratic approach to the Internet. You can learn from other people’s experience, and share yours. And of course, you can demonstrate your skills and competencies to everybody, including future employers!

For this section you must have access to a PC and be able to surf confidently on the internet. If you have a little experience with wikis, blogs or discussion groups, and you are familiar with the general principles of Web 2.0 it will be easier for you to follow this section.
