Google Wave Use Cases: Education - 0 views

  •  
    "After searching some public 'waves,' we came across an educational wave. Entitled 'Wave in Class,' the wave was started to explore concepts like "Collaborative Note Taking" and "Wave as a Debate Host." "
  •  
    So it begins... the usual range of reactrions when a new technology is introduced, and educators begin to spin salvation or doom on top of it. Interestingly, there are already a couple of comments on this blog that use Wave concepts to challenge the context (the "class").

The enterprise implications of Google Wave | Enterprise Web 2.0 | ZDNet.com - 1 views

  •  
    "What Google has done with the Wave protocol is essentially create a new kind of social media format that is distinctively different from blogs, wikis, activity streams, RSS, or most familiar online communication models except possibly IM. Both blogs and wikis were created in the era of page-oriented Web applications and haven't changed much since. In contrast, Google Wave is designed for real-time participation and editing of shared conversations and documents and is more akin to the simultaneous multiuser experience of Google Docs than with traditional blogs and wiki editing. Though Google is sometimes criticized for missing the social aspect of the Web, that is patently not the case with waves, which are fundamentally social in nature. Participants can be added in real-time, new conversations forked off (via private replies), social media sharing is assumed to be the norm, and connection with a user's contextual server-side data is also a core feature including location, search, and more. The result is stored in a persistent document known as a wave, access to which can be embedded anywhere that HTML can be embedded, whether that's a Web page or an enterprise portal. Users can then discover and interact with the wave, joining the conversation, adding more information, etc. Google has also leveraged its investments in Google Gadgets and OpenSocial, two key technologies for spreading online services beyond the original boundaries of the sites they came from. All in all, Google Wave is a smart and well-constructed bundle of collaborative capabilities with many of the modern sensibilities we've come to expect in the Web 2.0 era including an acutely social nature, rapid interaction, and community-based technology."

What Intrigues Me About Google Wave - 0 views

  • The basic idea was to make a radically editable learning environment in which students as well as faculty members could rearrange content, functionality, and navigation in the learning environment.

      What fraction of faculty will be excited by radical editability? Its a paragidm shift

      Also, what fraction of _students_ will be excited by radical editability? Will a readiness assessment be needed?
