Random Thoughts: Change, Primary Sources & Other Stuff

Shakespeare and web 2.0

Posted on: August 20, 2010

Shakespeare in Winona! 2004: I was quite excited to learn a professional theatre  group was forming right here in our island city along the Mississippi. I added links to our district web site volunteered in the costume shop, ushered at performances and delivered brochures to the schools. I fully intended not to do any volunteer work that required me to use technology. Then along came web 2.0.

2010. My work as a Friend of Will was the last place I expected to learn. Learn I did. I’ve applied old skills (word processing and email) in  volunteer communications, learned something totally new (e-marketing newsletters with Vertical Response) and applied transferable skills from this blog to my work the Festival blog.   Next on my agenda: A little tech training session for other Friends of Will.   I appreciate and enjoy how the Festival successfully reaches out with Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. An innovative costume shop employee created a VoiceThread discussion surrounding  Desdemona’s costume in Othello.
Media specialists can (and must)  reach out with web 2.0 too.  It’s a best practice!
