Discussion thread: Thoughts about wikis
--Nboruett 17:08, 23 November 2009 (UTC)This is norbert boruett from kenya initially before the tutorial i was concerned with the quality of the wiki content, bit the light has come on my side- you put very nicely that the community of the wiki are the policemen of the content. They ensure the validity and the realiability of the content. As a system adminstrator of the our college learning managment system based on Moodle, i have been facilitating wiki, now i have a better concept of the power of wiki. I have used EXe the html editor and i realise it possible to up load a wiki as scrom or IMIS.
- --User:Mary Ziller I am also interested in Moodle. I saw a demonstration of its implementation in the Science Lab Academy in Philadelphia at the Technology conference 2008, sponsored by Chris Lehmann. The teachers there liked it.
Course development should be open. Teaching is not adding knowledge to somebody or fill a students brains with knowledge. Teaching is helping somebody to master a skill, to understand the world around, to introduce somebody is society or a job.
Open knowledge does not affect teachers income. --JaapB 12:05, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
I keep coming back to the the belief that we do not 'own' knowledge, but as teachers we facilitate it. It is that facilitation we get paid for, not handing out knowledge.Sarah Stewart 03:39, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
