Hold your ideas lightly - The Learner's Way - 2 views

  •  
    The history of teaching is littered with ideas that have come and gone. In their day each was the new bright hope, set to transform what we do as teachers and how our students learn. Each new idea had its supporters and detractors and each in turn was replaced by an alternative or simply disappeared from view. Those who have experienced this ebb and flow of ideas have learned to approach the shiny and the new with caution and yet we have all encountered ideas that are so compelling it is difficult to ignore. How might we approach new ideas and innovative practices in ways that ensure our students benefit?

Making the Case for a Wiki - 4 views

  •  
    Author: Emma Tonkin was educated as a physicist and has diversified as a techno innovation coordinator in the UK at the University of Bath where she managed various systems/support within UKOLN. She is a member of the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative Advisory Board and maintains a presence at Bristol University Making the Case for a Wiki discusses a concept born in 1995 of wikis being simply user editable data storage. The term was taken from the Hawaiian term 'WikiWki, or "Super fast". A visual sample of a wiki would look like a thinking map with various links. Ward Cunningham described the wiki as 'the simplest online database that could possibly work." Wikis have other features which are not included in this description. * A space containing pages that can be freely written or edited by anybody * Pages may be added by the use of WikiWords that are automatically linked to a page referred to by that name. * They are not usually written in HTML though some do allow HTML formatting to be used. Emma Tonkins focuses on three concepts: 1) that Wikis lend themselves to research notebooks, 2). Concept mapping which is also validated by Novak in his research showing wikis are useful for brainstorming, and 3). Collaborative authoring through blogs. Lucy Suchman's pioneering approach to ethnography in the office environment concludes, "Knowing your audience, in computer -mediated communication means getting an understanding of the target community. This research is essential in understanding the synergy which occurs in collaborative online learning environments and the importance of knowing your students. Online instructors must initiate social activities which encourage conversations to help the learning community get to know each other as well as the instructor.
