Social Software for Social Inclusion

Samenvatting

The spread of social software in recent years has been phenomenal. Similarly the use of second generation Internet technologies - what O'Reilly once introduced as Web 2.0 and what today is extended to related terms as Web 2.0, Learning 2.0, Enterprise 2.0 and Quality 2.0 - such as blogs, wikis, podcasts, tagging are seemingly opening up innovative, bottom-up and direct possibilities for innovative learning as well as for social and e-Inclusion. Advocates of Web 2.0 furthermore suggest that the Internet is substantially moving from passive publication to active participation; that the Internet is one of the major knowledge repositories for personal knowledge acquisition and learning, may it be acquired formally, non-formally or informally. It is furthermore increasingly argued that Web 2.0 applications can empower resistant learners and excluded groups by offering them new opportunities for self-realisation through collaborative learning, and by changing the nature of education itself. Yet the evidence base for these conclusions is still fragmented and contested. There is for example also counter evidence that Web 2.0 can reinforce exclusion and reduce learning outcomes. The European R&D project 'Learning 2.0 for an Inclusive Knowledge Society - Understanding the Picture (Links-up; www.links-up.eu) aims at exploring therefore three main areas: i) Is Learning 2.0 really supporting inclusive Lifelong Learning (LLL)? ii) Can isolated e-Inclusion experiments be mainstreamed? iii) Is Learning 2.0 fundamentally changing the educational landscape?
