Qualities of a Good Virtual team

 One of the most important parts of a virtual team is commitment, communication, diversity, and a willingness to keep update and keep in communication with the other communicators.

In a Good virtual team, we do not gain trust as in a normal working environment, but it is assumed that people are willing to contribute.


Team Rules for working on our wiki

  1.  All contribute
  2. I would rather there be no sillyness or random videos being uploaded (thanks Filthy and Coxie)
  3. Keep it up to date
    1. Everyone should make an effort to contribute
    2. The above rules pretty much cover everything else

How do we ensure Deep learning occurs?

-the best way to ensure deep learning occurs, is to set task orientated learning within the the virtual team

- Access to information- the internet. The internet is ahuge mine of information and can be used to access a wealth of interesting info.  

Review the work of writers:

Marc Prensky

  • George Siemens Connectivism started as my frustrations with existing learning theories rose.I started to see, in classrooms and online, that the theories of learning I had been taught were no longer adequate for (or representative of) how people were learning. Instead of cognitivism (and the views of cognitive schema) or pure construction of knowledge, I notice learners were actually connecting - with each other and technology. Simultaneously, our learners were experiencing a tremendous increase in information. Some (like ASTD) have stated information doubles every 18 months. We simply are not able to handle and process information the way we used to. With connectivism, I wanted to create a conversation about what it means to learn and know today. All of the theories used by educators come from an era where computers didn't exist. We are trying to use theories of learning from a predominantly physical era, and force them to work in a digital era. We need a new pedagogy, a new view of learning, a new view of knowledge or interacting - George Siemens (Global Summit)



Lying at the centre of George's work is his theory of 'connectivism'. Siemens calls this 'a theory of how learning takes place in the digital age'.


  • Dana Boyd 

    "My research focuses on how people negotiate a presentation of self to unknown audiences in mediated contexts. In particular, my dissertation is looking at how youth engage with networked publics like MySpace, Facebook, LiveJournal, Xanga and YouTube. I am interested in how the architectural differences between unmediated and mediated publics affect sociality, identity and culture. My dissertation research is being funded as a part of the MacArthur Foundation's Initiative on New Media and Learning"



  • An Analysis of how it works, why it is web 2.0 and how it can be used collaboratively.
    that site pretty much tells you all you need to know about flickr and using it collaboratively.
  • A Comparison of Flickr with photobucker will also provide further insights into the nature of Web,
    photobucket and have to say, that for me, Flickr is much more useful. First of all Flickr lets you choose multiple sizes at which to view your photos and download as well. It gives more options to set up your gallery space and I really like how much power it gives you to set permissions.
