VA users guide..
What I was looking for:- Engagement- Collaboration- Inclusive thinking- Effective knowledge generation- Rich interactions- Critical context- Peer critique- Visual vocabulary development- Professional portfolio- Easy management...
It is important to match intended purpose with features of tool...
WHAT Modern WIki platform
WHY Built from the ground up for collaboration, free, lots of support resources, support for embedded rich media
HOW You and each student create an account
PROS CONSBuilt from the ground up for collaboration Some useful management features missing from free version
Free, lots of online support resources, supports embedding of rich media
Requires continuous moderation
Can be a useful directory to other resources like digital sketchbooks hosted on Prezi.com
Students dont have their own page and utility aesthetic limits use as portfolio showcase
Encourages peer critique Students find the interface and management confusing
With larger classes it becomes difficult to keep tabs on whos contributed what
WHAT Modern micro blogging platform - Think Twitter with much more HTML customisation options
WHY Free, very easy to work with, potential for professional looking portfolios, lots of online support resources, support for embedded rich media
HOW You and each student creates an account and make a directory to subscribe to each other
Very slick design and HTML customisation means students can build professional looking portfolios
collaboration is possible but not as instant as in PB Works
Free, lots of online support resources, supports embedded rich media
Encourages works posted to be separated from original context without proper attribution to author
light touch moderation & easy to manage as everyone is responsible for their own page
Requires Disqus account to enable extended comments
Encourages peer critique, and helps develop students visual vocabulary
Very scalable for larger class sizes
What about backups?
