Type of Web 2.0 Tools that you are using already I used different tools web 2.0 in different categories that correspondto business or personal as associative needs. Social networking let me to maintain and develop professionalcontact with people that I can not meet on regular base because of thelocation distance. Collaborative works is important to share and realiseproject in professional sphere as well associative activities. The flexibilityof the tools allows me to participate or ask to people to participateindependently of the cost, the distance or the time consuming, especiallyfor volunteers or international team members. Some other tools (as Research, eLearning, Information, Sharing,Publishing, Blogs) are used in the professional and private sphere tomaintain and develop skills and knowledge as to produce professionalknowledge and to share it with peers. The last tools (Social bookmarking,Branding) are use in the professional activities for the personal branding.

  • 10. 0penEDBusiness and Management Competencies in a Web 2.0 world III. Advantages and disadvantages of Web 2.0 Tools Globally, I found some advantage to use all theses tools. First,information can be pulled from a number of different places, and permitme to communicate and to collaborate with others and spread ideas ratherthan receiving information from one single authority. I can view eventsfrom more than one perspective. I can find information that wouldotherwise take a lot of time to acquire if even never. In opposition it is some disadvantages. This technology dependentfrom logical and technical infrastructures (provider, network, computer …).As I can find accurate and hidden information in the ‘network’, thisinformation can be subject to manipulation as in physical life. Also thepossible lack of protection on private life as well the work/life balance canbe hard to achieve. IV. Reflection on Web 2.0 Tools Almost the web 2.0 tools increase the possibility of accessibility toinformation, creativity, information exchange, connectivity andcollaboration between people all over the world in a non necessarycontrolling manner or central authority. The system can be self organizearound ideas or projects as the ‘Open Source’ community or ‘Anonymous’action. But tools will not replace people and make them working orcollaborate better if they don’t want to do so; Or they do not know orafraid to do it. All behaviour behind the use of these tools existed hundredyears ago within different forms. The difference was that before it wasunder an authority of a person or a group of persons (boss, professionalalliances, secret society, alumni…) and thru more or less physical contact.We can say that collaboration is not about the tools used but more aboutmindset. We can just expect that the web 2.0 tools will introduce aparadigm change in the people behaviour related to connectivity andtransparency. We can compare the web 2.0 tools as the introduction ofthe printing industry in the 15th century that brings a paradigm change inthe access of information and knowledge with the ‘good’ and the ‘bad’ ofthis paradigm change.Module 1: Tools for collaboration in a Web 2.0 world 10
