My Interests

I love a wide range of sport. Rugby is my favourite sport and I am a staunch silver fern supporter. I've taken a liking to ice hockey supporting our local team the Vancouver Canucks. I love the physicality of the game and the speed at which it is played. Soccer(football in some circles) is a favourite of mine as well.

Reading is a priority. I like fact and fiction. I have been bitten by the photography bug. I reading up on photography magazines to upgrade my hardware. Hope to post some pictures in the near future.

I love the outdoors as well. Vancouver has beautiful sites all over. For bonding time with my wife a bicycle ride around Stanley Park is an absolute favourite of mine.

I love the Internet and the possibilities it offers for the betterment of situations in all spheres of life. I am smitten by new developments in technology and want to become part of this new wave called Wiki Educator. I hope to gain all the knowledge and skills from this training to be fully operational in WikiEducator.

My Reflection

  • The Wiki concept is a collaboration between old ideas and information that is presented in such a way that responsible editing can take place to do the following:
    • Add on to the understanding of relevant topics.
    • Present new information challenging a existing topics.
    • Present the latest developments.
    • Allows for immediate access to reliable information.

  • Just watched the online WikiEducator workshop that took place on July 17th, 2009. I'm impressed but the huge strides made by WikiEducator towards collaborative learning. The WiZiQ application is awesome. I am learning more each time I am engaging the WikiEducator website. There is a huge amount of information available on how to become and effective user of WikiEducator, and as a user it is my reponsibility aid this learning process. I hope to join the next online workshop.--Hylton 08:42, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
