Net Tuesday Philly Meetup Message Board › Philly Net Tuesday, May 3: Do-It-Yourself Education!
Upper Darby, PA
At this month’s Philly Net Tuesday (May 3), we’ll explore the social web of self-directed learning, community education, and online knowledge sharing environments. What does all this mean for the future of education and how can we use it for social good?
We’ll be gathering at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, May 3 at the Friends Center, 1501 Cherry Street.
The evening will have two main parts to it. First, a panel (details coming soon) will lead a discussion of the emerging resources, technologies and social patterns that are helping people share knowledge in new ways. Then, you’ll be able to check out many of these online services for yourself, with your own laptop, or one from a cart of laptops provided by Philadelphia OIC's mobile computer lab (NOMAD). We plan to live-stream at least the first part of the evening at http://phillynetsquared.org/live, and support a Twitter backchannel (hashtag: #phlnet2).
This event is geared towards…

Bu these are just the tip of the online leaning iceberg! We’re compiling a more complete list to distribute at the event itself, and we want your help! Go to http://phillynetsquared.org/resources to see the growing list. Then, either add another online educational resource you know about, or add a comment or review of one that’s already on the list. Let’s share our own knowledge about all of these resources to help us share our knowledge!
RSVP's are appreciated for planning purposes, but not required.
