In answer to the first question i set myself when i headed off to look at wikis…
Straight from the horses mouth – totally valuable:
The purpose of WikiEducator
|The WikiEducator is an evolving community intended for the collaborative:|
Our community values…
So, this is a bit narrower in that it is wikieducator specifically, and not wikipedia, or any other use of a wiki, which could be as simple as friends chatting in one space and time as a more sensible alternative to lots of e-mails flying back and forward – but I think it is good to have a context around my questions (i.e. the purpose of this paper – education – learning) or else I go too far thinking about all the possibilities 🙂
So this is my start – next – set up a page on DESIGN THEORY AND DESIGN MODELS for this assignment. I guess my first problem is, how will this page be coherent is we are all looking at different design models that are specific to our own topics? I guess, we will just all have to work this out as we go.
-the other questions I set myself:
( -What are the benefits to using a wiki in a learning/educational situation?
-How can I use a wiki either for my own learning, or to facilitate other people’s learning (or both)?)
can also wait until I get started I think – the doing of this assignment should give me some insights…
