Using Web 2.0 for Learning in the Community
Mason, Robin; Rennie, Frank
Internet and Higher Education, v10 n3 p196-203 2007
This paper describes the use of a range of Web 2.0 technologies to support the development of community for a newly formed Land Trust on the Isle of Lewis, in NW Scotland. The application of social networking tools in text, audio and video has several purposes: informal learning about the area to increase tourism, community interaction, "ownership" of the Trust's website and pride in the local landscape. The paper provides background theory related to informal learning and Web 2.0 technologies and describes an innovative application of them to a sparsely populated rural community.
