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.

The Project

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.
