Short 30 min sessions sprinkled throughout the Summer Academy  / synchronic as well as asynchronic

Ethercalc is an open source – instant web spreadsheet tool, developed by Audrey Tang building on wikiCalc Similarly to Etherpad people can edit the same document at the same time. Ethercalc works for inventories, survey forms, list managment, brainstorming sessions, budgets, time tables, a potential essenctial tool for collaborative organizing

During these several mini workshops we will explore the expressive, creative and collaborative potential of spreadheets. Each session will have another angle and kicks off with a short assignment/prompt. The prompts create the scene for a collective exploration of Ethercalc with the intention to stretch the tools boundaries in unexpected ways – beyond its primary intention as a spreadsheet document tool.
