Federated Wiki for Distributed Notetaking (and the surprising pedagogical implications of that)Posted: July 24, 2014
I mentioned earlier that I’d decided to change my explanation of federated wiki from a “top-down” explanation to a “bottom-up” one.
It makes a heck of a difference. I made this video below for one of our faculty, to show how even something as simple as notes becomes an integrative exercise in federated wiki. I don’t know about you, but watching the flow on SFW work is just *enjoyable* to me. I mean it when I say once you get fluidity with it it feels like a direct extension of your own mind.
So what about the federated stuff? The JSON stuff? The Universal Canvas stuff?
It’s still there. Once you start to think of wikis as personal it raises all the sorts of questions these things solve. But it’s better to start bottom-up than top down.
