4 How was it?

5 What did it tell me? The group consists of both –Beginners (some absolute) –(somewhat) Experts Made it harder to come up with a lecture that would suite both groups.

6 What did it tell me? Questions range from: –What is Social Software? –Who is using it and how? In libraries In education –What are recent trends? –Why use it and isn’t it just a hype?

7 Agenda 11:00 hrs Start lecture Introduction, overview of what Social Software is. 11:30 hrs Start group discussion. Results of the discussions will be added to the wiki. 12:00 hrs Report back from groups One-liner per group. 12:30 hrs Lunch
