New Competences for the new WEBAbstract
This project represents the pedagogic experience developed in three classes of the following degrees: Socio-cultural animation, Social Education and Arts and Multimedia, under the course Communication and Information Technologies in Santarem's Higher School. During one semester the students explored 3 tools of website construction 2.0: Google sites, Webnode and Wix. In the end of the semester the students filled out a survey to evaluate this experience and future use of the acquired competences.
In Web 2.0 people don't use the Internet just to search information but to provide it, making concepts like collective intelligence and collaborative learning with development strategies of mixed competences (learning and personal and social development) emerge. This new usage of the Web implies new competences since each element of the community is a potential contributor of knowledge, responsible for his/her learning and the learning of others.
