#7 Reflections on technology
My aim at the beginning of this program was to learn about Web 2.0 so that I could work out applications for local history. I was particularly interested in it for Boroondara's history but also for other research projects of my own. Doing this course has made me look at tools in a systematic way and finally to sign up to use them interactively rather than just as a passive user. I think that the potential for using local history to foster a sense of place in such virtual social networking environments is amazing and represents a real growth area for public libraries.
