This was the topic my team had to research. By team, I mean a group of five people that would collaboratively create a small portion of a much larger wiki with me. However, there were some issues. Aside from the people who never showed up, I feel that the others never contributed much. I understand that people are busy, but this project was designed for students to work together. I do not think that the goal was achieved. I barely got in contact with my team, and received no replies to any discussion posts or comments or work. Others in my school feel the same way. I never truly resolved the problem, I just continued working on the wiki on my own. Our group made use of hyperlinks, but did not really need to cite many sources. Overall, I suppose I am okay about our wiki.
In addition to coming together with a team and making a wiki, I also had to make an outsource video for someone. It was easy to understand what was asked of me. I created an outsource video showing two people working together on a project and sending information to each other via tablets. My video made it into her final video, after all, it did show everything that was asked.
I requested an outsource video, too. I wanted a video of a really messy table full of books, paper, etc. Then the focus should cut to a tablet. I received my video really soon. I did not use all of the video that MatthewH_whbs made, because the tablet portion at the end was not what I wanted, because it was a completely different clip, when I had just wanted the camera to move over to a tablet. Also, the background noise was a nuisance, and I ended up deleting all of the sound. But I am glad I got a video, unlike some people who did not.
On top of all of these other things, I had to make my own video. My initial idea was to have the video centered around how tablets are good for the environment, and planned to have many reasons. Instead, with the time winding down, I decided to really emphasize one reason, that they save paper. The quality of my video is acceptable, although it could have come out a little clearer, but the audio is fine. To improve it, I could have spent more time on making my Xtranormal video, adding more special effects and such. Putting it all together, I am pleased with my movie. There are two students whom I think should be recognized for their movies, Joshuaa_aahs, because his video was smooth, professional, and short and concise. I know him from school, and he clearly knew what he was doing. Out of the ones from my class that I saw, Joshua's was by far the best, and the one that was unique from the others. Also, I thought that Morgan_ISA did a really good job on her video. The transitions were very smooth, and the whole video flowed from the beginning to the end. The sound and effects added to it as well. Great job Morgan and Joshua!
To sum it all up, working on the NetGenEd project taught me a lot; about teamwork, technology, and just how far our generation, the Net generation, has come.
