Our Collaboration project with Crozet Gains is making me miss internship a lot.  We are collaborating with Paula White’s grade 5 math class, and each one has their own wiki.  The excitement these children have for their own learning astounds me.  William’s Math wikispace is a really awesome example of this.  He has so many pages that interest him, and he sends out little wiki mails to his other classmates and collaborators inviting them to edit a certain page he just made, or he asks them to fill out a poll on his poll page.  I bet if you filled out his poll, he would love it- AND get more data from his poll.

This just goes to show that the best learning that can take place is learner centered learning where the learner him/herself takes the initiative and is responsible for the results.  I also believe that learning takes place when there is collaboration involved, and this is evident in William’s wikispace.  I can’t wait to see what else he and his other classmates come up with.
