I am in search for something in Web 2.0. The end is clear to me: How to find cathartic or closure like experience with the aid of Web 2.0. My background is in organizational development and group psychology. Although I have been developing learning technologies and systems, my eyes have always been on the outcome in terms of experience, learning, healing and revitalization.*
So this is my personal diary as a student of group psychology, learning and technology.
I focus on two originating points.
Why cathartic experience?
Why Web 2.0?
My goal? How do I continue to nourish my need for catharsis, share what I learn and improve my skill to deliver this know-how through Web 2.0 tools or e-Learning 2.0 methods.
One thing definite: I do not wish to be jumping around numerous Web 2.0 technologies, be consumed with the technology, and lose the essence of my search – Catharsis in Web 2.0. I search for the opposite - simplify my life with Web 2.0 tools.
Is there Catharsis in Web 2.0? Can you share with me your ideas?
I will see you in the next post.
*About Catharsis: “a sudden emotional climax that evokes overwhelming feelings of great sorrow, pity, laughter or any other extreme change in emotion, resulting in restoration, renewal and revitalization in members of the audience.”
