Concern 2 gr.4

Edited by another user.
Last edit: 21:11, 4 September 2008

teachers will rely on e-learning for students' use instead of doing their job of facilitating

  1. face-to-face learning is a better means for immediate feedback

Yes but I hope this will never happen in the future and I also think that this will rely on the accessibility to computers. So dont worry ... and stay focussed.

I look forward to freer access to e-learning. It cuts down time in photocpying and also its a mean of reaching a lot more students, either in the classroom or abroad.

This open up choices on how u learn. Its a facet of flexible learning, and it benefits those that couldnot comply with the normal way of education today.

Group 4: concerns using open authoring approach

  • another concern is that open authoring may give opportunities for harmful or damaging information by other contributors before we have a chance to make appropriate changes
Aquinas01 (talk)20:59, 4 September 2008

yes.. for example someone might put rude remarks about me which i find not very funny a week later after other people already had a good laugh about

V.okesene (talk)21:03, 4 September 2008

If this medium is catered for professionals, any harmful attacks and unwelcomed changes is not tolerated. I suggest that policies should be placed somewhere out there in this website to avoid such childish acts.

Maaiolupotea (talk)21:10, 4 September 2008
 

exactly, that's why this open authoring may not be such a good idea although it is quite a valuable means of learning from other educators and experienced teachers and of course for students also

Aquinas01 (talk)21:10, 4 September 2008
 

Manipulation of information is more a concern with us than harmful entries.

Tiareimoana (talk)21:37, 4 September 2008
 

I guess it all comes down to ethics and morals. One way of tracking this if it happens is that, theres the username of the person causing such dangers and immediate action should be taken.

Maaiolupotea (talk)20:59, 4 September 2008

I agree wholeheartedly with this motive of reducing the number of face to face type of learning. However it should never replace the importance of lecturer student contact. This is still the most essential and effective method of consultation.

We are of the opinion that it all draws down to minimising costs but it not an issue for now.

Maaiolupotea (talk)21:03, 4 September 2008

The suggestion of minimising costs is very important and it is now the determining factor on how new technologies are accepted or not. In remote ares and poor countries, this sharing of resources is very much welcomed. Those that never had the opportunity to gain access to any mean of education, will find it easier to access these learning medium.

Tiareimoana (talk)21:28, 4 September 2008
 

Wiki educator does help a lot, it opens up new ways of doing things, it should completement but not to take over our face to face type of learning.

V.okesene (talk)21:06, 4 September 2008

How about a section on textbooks for Finance especially.

These texts should provide powerpoint presentations, lecture notes, case studies and tests. What a relief if this is offered also.

Maaiolupotea (talk)21:13, 4 September 2008
 

yes, i agree Vai, as lecturers, we should be there to assist students in using wikieducator for their learning...but they still need the facilitators during this learning process. their knowledge and awareness of wiki use could be utilised later in life...pass on to their children, community, etc.
