Not to say that I am floundering–quite flourishing really–but still this is a mirage. Who can flourish on a wiki unless the others are flourishing with you, having this community of paired share, of editing and “here’s this too!”
I was somewhat familiar with wiki places before this assignment. My own experiment wonders about how community affects the classroom. But there is more than meets the eye. I often forget that Wikipedia is really just a very very large wiki. Sure, I know that folks can change Wikipedia pages, but how simple a concept…taking off to surpass our Encyclopedias!
And what of the ability to hold “discussions”…or that by its simplicity, wikis prove to be accessible.
