23 Ways to Help Clue In the Web 2.0 Illiterates

Tired of trying to explain blogging, flickr and wikis to your non-Digerati friends and co workers? Not that everyone needs Web 2.0 literacy mind you, some do very well without it.

But if you want to help educate the non Web 2.0 illiterate masses in your company/ organization and get them more web 2.0 literate, the free Learning 2.0 Site developed by North Carolina’s Charlotte & Mecklenburg County public library would be a good place to start. via Wired.

They have 23 different lessons on how to learn and use Web 2.0 related technologies. Looks pretty cool, they introduce the topics and get you to actually create something, so it’s practical not just theoretical learning.

Here are some of their topics:

  • Blogging
  • Photos & Images
  • RSS & Newsreaders
  • Roll your own search tool with Rollyo.
  • Tagging, Folksonomies & Technorati
  • Wikis
  • Online Applications & Tools
  • Podcasts, Video & Downloadable audio

Just in time for Barcamp Vancouver 2007, where I’ll be probably learning about not only Web 2.0 but Web 3.0. They were full up but they found more space. I’m sure there will be lots of opportunities to crank up my dopamine levels by injecting stimulating ideas into my brain.
