Do you know your Twitter from an Avatar, or RSS from a BIM?
I am currently running an innovation circle for Construction Knowledge Exchange (CKE) looking at the use of web technology in construction at UCLAN. The first session took a lightning tour through communication, design and collaboration in the sector, from fax machines to BIM storms.
Innovation circles are based on a cycle of four 2 hour sessions, the content of each being decided by the delegates based upon the first ‘overview’ session. Web technology in construction flyer
Future sessions will look into the worlds of:
■ Communications—blogs, twitter, skype and conference tools.(Thursday 10th April 1pm)
■ Information—google and wikis
■ Design—beyond CAD to Second Life, BIM and Bimstorms.
…. and, technology (wifi) permitting will be more hands on and interactive wih the web applications. (Why is I find the most trouble some place to get wifi or internet connections is within universities? OftenI feel like taking the workshop “across the road” to a MacDonalds or Starbucks !)
Following the fourth session the presentation materials will be available here and on slideshare, with a recap at the be2campnorth event on 15th May in Liverpool.
