This is the very first time I am blogging! I am already learning a lot in this course, wether it is how to use Tumblr or google hangout, it’s surprisingly very cool!
Honestly I’ve been quite confused about this whole project for the first days. I didn’t exactly know what to expect from the entire social media aspects but now i’ve explored it a bit it becomes more clear to me.
I think this course will gain us a lot more knowledge about the NGO’s involved, and about the affect media and networking have on the global awareness of their actions. At first I really did not know what to do with the Gogorobi things, I didn’t really see the benefit of us involving in this. But it was quite nice to see and learn that things sometimes are not what you think at first and you have to step out of your comfort zone to see the real essence and possibilities.
I think what is needed to achieve our goals also depends on individual participation in this course. I hope to gain as much knowledge about the the cultural issues around the world and the role networking has in this. I am very curious what we will learn while exploring the different themes from application of online communities and networks to open innovation design. I know how facebook works, but in only a few days time I have learned about Tumblr, Google Hangout, Google Drive, and a few more websites! I didn’t think it would interest me but I am looking forward to exploring these networks even more.
I hope that as a group we will accomplish something rememberable. I would like to look back at this project with a feeling that we have done something useful for the world, even if it’s only the smallest bit.
Personally i think that my contribute to this group work is not clear right now, but it will develop during the course hopefully!
