To Enhance the learning, teaching and assessment

of Digital Imaging IMD.

Aims:

MSc Dissertation

Pedagogy & Learning Technology:

VA users guide..

WIkiBlog

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...

http://pbworks.com

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

http://myimaging.pbworks.com

http://pbworks.com

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

Thanks Tom!

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

PROS CONS

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?
