Learning Dialogue Webinar
On 24 October 2011 at 11:00 CET the project partners and their local contacts offered this 1 hour long webinar to all practitioners with presentations downloadable in four languages (English, Deutsch, Nederlands, Italiano). During the webinar, participants could interact in oral as well as in written form with the help of 4 expert moderators in all four languages.
At the Webinar the results of 2 years research with Austrian, English, Italian, Dutch and German local projects engaged on various fields of social inclusion were presented. This Webinar was also a ‘Learning Dialogue’ aiming to bring together stakeholders to review and debate the results. It covers the policy and practice map of the project; a summary analysis of 24 case study examples of the use of Web 2.0 to support ‘inclusive learning’, and the evaluation of six ‘action research’ experiments, which applied what was learned during the project.

Final Conference: Learning 2.0 for Social Inclusion and Entrepreneurship
The Links-up Final Conference and FREE International Seminar on Facebook
The closing events of two outstanding EU funded projects were organised in Budapest on 22-23 September. The Closing event offered highly valuable research findings, products and services developed over their 2 years of lifetime. Both the Links-up (Learning 2.0 for an Inclusive Knowledge Society - Understanding the Picture) and the FREE (Fostering Return to Employment through Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Creativity) projects will be finishing shortly.

Answer three questions related to your experiences in how web 2.0 work in a learning setting for disatvantages people via our online survey
Links-up is research project about how ‘Web 2.0’ technologies – e.g. social networking software – are changing the face of education and training for disadvantaged people. The project puts together a picture of the ‘landscape’ of ‘Learning 2.0 for Inclusion’ by reviewing what has been done in the academic and research field, and by practitioners working on the ground in projects that have been using Web 2.0 to work with disadvantaged groups. It uses a series of ‘action research’ experiments, collaborating with ‘host’ projects working in the field, to evaluate the added contribution Web 2.0 can make to practices that use learning to support social inclusion.
Information about Links-up in Dutch, German and Italian is available at the e-Library of the project.
Links-up organised its Final Conference in September 2011 (see details here), and will be present at eChallenges 2011 on 26 October 2011 in Session 4f at 16:00. Join us to share experiences face-to-face!
The last Links-up Workshop took place at the EDEN Annual Conference 2011, Dublin, Ireland on 22 June with the title "Social Software for Social Inclusion: Successes or Failures?". We reflected on policy, conceptual & practice landscape, problems encountered and lessons learnt, and reports from the ground. Here's a short video documenting the athmosphere.
