Guest Presentation: Wikis and the Collaborative Classroom, Just Posting in the Same Place?

| No comments

Earlier this week I spent an evening, via Skype, with Steven McGee's Teaching with Technology class in the Learning Sciences Department at Northwestern. Steven came to a talk I gave at AERA on the same topic, and he invited me to join his students. Since I was I was basically just doing a webinar with them, I screencast the event so that I could share it here, and so he could share it with sick students who missed class.

The folks in Steven's class were a great group with a really nice vibe. I love spending time with teachers and pre-service teachers, even if remotely.

The video of class, about an hour, is below. There are a few snafu's: at one point we take a long break because Skype's screensharing stopped working, and several of my slides ported incorrectly from my pc to the mac I used to screencast. Also, I look like a wreck. I'm single parenting this week, so I dashed from put-to-bed to college professor fairly quickly. "Put on collared shirt" was on my list, but not successfully executed. For all that, however, you can get a sense of my thinking on wikis and collaboration.
