The spidergram for getting started with AND evaluating communities

“Technology has fundamentally changed how we can be together!” With this phrase Nancy White started the webinar ‘Thinking about online communities using the Digital Habitats Orientation Spidergram’, which was held on the 21st February 2012.

Some of them work effective, others are less effective. It depends on the situation. The world of the ‘paper and pen’ has transformed into a new world of digital tools. That has created a new dynamic on how we communicate in communities. If technology is not working we use paper and pen, other times we use the computer, preferably applications that remind us of the ‘paper and pen’.”  Lees verder
