Posted by slandete on Wednesday, December 24, 2008

Post in your blog about the collaboration in your sub group. You may want to think about some of these issues.

  • Was it easy to define objectives and criteria?
  • How did you distribute the work?
  • How did you feel about your own participation?
  • How did you feel about other participation?
  • Where there any problems, or misunderstandings?

Collaboration in my group was practically inexistent because everybody else was busy due to the special time of the year we’re at. Objectives were kind of agreed among the other 2 people that showed up in the forum initially and myself, based on our common interests. As for distribution of work, meetings, etc., there was none. I did some research, found places and completed the activities on my own, up to the guide presentation yesterday. There has been some activity in the forum group today but I don’t think I should do any further work in this section even though I’ll help whoever contacts me if I can.

Module 1, Section 3, Activity 1 – Exploring educational places

Posted by slandete on Sunday, December 21, 2008

I’m in subgroup 1.4 of MUVEnation.For topic of educational places to search, we sort of decided “Computer Science and use of Web2.0 communications through Internet“. I’ve explored several places but in this post I will focus on four of them; to see all the search results please check the wiki page of the group here. The 4 places I’ll discuss are Sloodle Island, the Podcaster’s Place, Dell’s computer and the Web 2.0 galleria.

Activity 5 – Sharing stories of our first steps into Second Life!

Posted by slandete on Monday, November 17, 2008

How would you describe your first steps? What were the technical issues, if any? What did you feel about the avatar you chose? What was orientation island like? Could you find help as needed? Where did you go? Did you speak to other avatars? What would improve the experience, if anything? What previous knowledge and skills helped you?

Pre-week 1 activities – Reflecting my own experience

Posted by slandete on Sunday, November 2, 2008

A. I am your friend. I don’t work in education. You are talking to me about the idea that we all learn from each other, in all kinds of contexts, and that this can often be richer than more formal classroom based learning. I am sceptical. Tell me about an informal learning experience you have had online in which collaboration was involved, show me a concrete example to help me to see what you mean.

When thinking about an informal learning experience I have had online in which collaboration was involved, the first thing that came to my mind was the planning of our trip to Costa Rica 3 years ago. There was four of us going, each working in a different city in 2 different countries, and we were going on our own, so we had to do all the plans. Read the rest of this entry »
