This is what I have encountered in trying to establish a group:
I put a Wikispace up for 4th-6th grade. Two people posted on it that they were interested. We began to put up some information we’d found, resources and such. I suggested we post our blog spots on the site in order to facilitate communication. One person of the original two did that. I watched the video (for week 3) and looked through other Wikispaces and decided that the space needed better organization so I tried to fix it based on the rubric. I didn’t consult with any group members because I really haven’t found a good way to communicate with them. I don’t know if the one original member is still looking in on the space. Now there is another person that is interested in helping. Yeah! I have exchanged some messages through the discussion board on Wikispaces and Google groups with them, encouraging their participation. We are now working at trying to set up a time and place/format to meet, but it’s been difficult to figure all this out. Also, by constructing my own learning I feel like my time is used inefficiently. I think about all the things that I know I need to get done and can do quickly. That adds to the frustrations of this process. I try to look at what others are writing and doing but it feels like driving with my eyes closed.
