Social tools and ideas for knowledge exchange in websites and projects
Time: 11:00 – 12:30 | Venue: Studio 1
We are using and designing all kinds of social tools applications continually. We have been using them for a while, so why not take we a moment to stop and take some time to think about what social is, what these applications do, and how we use them.
The main goals of the workshop are:
- Be (offline) social and connect and share knowledge with all the participants
- Look at the characteristics of social (online) applications and compare them
We aim to help you re-think what social is (or could be) by presenting a classification and comparison of social tools, and looking at how they can improve communication in groups and communities. Additionally, participants will work out a business case in groups. We will share the group results with all the conference attendees, and invite them to vote. (Note: The results of the workshop will be presented as a poster session and can be viewed during from 12:30 p.m. and onwards).
By re-discovering social tools, applications and their uses, we hope to help open up your mind to new perspectives of what social means, and potentially become more creative and innovative in your next project.
