The National Agricultural Research Institute in collaboration with the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Development, the Secretariat of the Pacific Community and the Department of Agriculture and Livestock will host a 5-day Web 2.0 Learning Opportunity at Bubia near Lae on 26-30 May, 2014. This follows the successful staging of the first training in Port Moresby in March. Two other trainings will follow suit later this year for the Highlands and New Guinea Islands regions.
Participants will be introduced to selected web 2.0 applications and will learn how to use them hands-on. The Learning Opportunity will cover advanced online searching, getting information served via alerts and RSS, collaborating remotely using wikis and Google Drive, using VoIP, online mapping and social media. The participants will get a chance to see what others have done, get hands-on experience on how to use innovative applications, and assess how they could adopt these innovations within the context of their work and organisation. This Learning Opportunity forms part of CTA initiatives that support development partners in networking, accessing and disseminating information more effectively.
