Web 2.0 and the Uninitiated

A recent post to this blog addresses the question, What is Web 2.0?  Indeed, it "is more than a set of 'cool' new technologies and services."  But what about those technologies and services?  Who explains them to the unitiated?  What if you are one of the unitiated?  No doubt, teaching is an ever-expanding role for law librarians, one that further integrates us into our parent institutions.  Often, this role includes teaching technologies and technology services.  So, thoughts of teaching and Web 2.0 merged in my mind when I recently accessed the 7 Things you Should Know About series from Educause.  The series offers concise, two-page explanations of wikis, Facebook, YouTube, virtual worlds, open journaling, Twitter, and much more.  Take a look at these to see how they may help you with instructing others, or yourself.

Editor's Note: With this post, I am delighted to announce that Matt Morrison has joined Law X.0 as a co-editor. Matt, Research Attorney and Lecturer in Law, Cornell Law Library, has worked in law libraries since 1996.  He really enjoys teaching and discovering the new ways in which students learn. Matt is also a regular contributor to Cornell Law Library's InSite which his library allows us to republish. Joe Hodnicki
