I’m starting to feel a little wonky after an intense few days of collaborating with 4 other classmates to create a wiki on grassroots video. It’s been a huge learning curve of how to effectively use the wiki medium to consolidate our learning with regards to grassroots videos while ensuring the wiki format honours a couple of the keys aspects of grassroots video- it incorporates a balance of multimedia content and it demonstrates our co-construction of knowledge rather than the mere reproduction of information. Needless to say, it has been a challenging project under such a time constraints which has contributed to my lack of sleep, but such a rewarding one too. While I’m feeling a little ‘wiki wonka’ right now, I have found it has been an assignment that has caused me to really grow. I’m looking forward to our presentation tomorrow where we will share the wiki with the rest of our class. Hopefully that will mean more sleep for me these last few days of summer session.
Fellow ed techies, once you have finished your group presentation I’d appreciate it if you took a moment to reflect on the process of using a wiki as part of that project and post a reply to this post.
