Hands On Social Software


Dear participants of the PROLEARN summer school 2007!

Some more word ahead of the “Hands On Social Software” workshop on

As we’d like to create a mashup from various learning sources related to PROLEARN we ask you to create a _login for Yahoo!_ beforehand if you do not already have one. We are going to use Yahoo! Pipes (http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/).

Furthermore we plan to do a Photowalk in context of “user generated data & metadata”. This is an event, where a group of people go for a walk and try to gather a lot of pictures matching a certain topic. This brings together lots of different viewpoints and impressions of the same topic & location. We’ll decide on the topic of the Photowalk on site collaboratively (something like “History of Fréjus”, “Biology – Beatles”, “Architecture”, etc.)

For the Photowalk we all need besides a portable digital image capturing device (e.g. camera 🙂 a _Flickr login_ (http://www.flickr.com) to upload and merge all creative efforts (images & annotations) centralized. Fortunately this is also coupled with a Yahoo! account, so the two tasks are reduced to one.

looking forward to next week,
Mathias Lux
