I have a recent frustration with the collaborative project. I dropped the ball with regard to doing work on the project earlier in the time frame for which it was assigned. I figured, "a massive benefit of this project is the freedom it allows it's participants"
I was all set to work on the site this afternoon...only to go to the site to see an amazing page dedicated to web 2.0 tools. The problem of course is that i did not contribute to the page's creation. My go - getter partners had done it all, and done it amazingly well.
So i sit and think about what i could possibly contribute to this amazing page that's dedicated to something i know little about, and when I finally think of something to contribute, I'm not allowed to because the first creator of the page set a limitation that requires "writers" to be approved by him. So now I'm stuck waiting on approval before i can contribute.
Despite this frustration with this specific project...
I think the collaborative wiki is sweet. I would love to hook up with another school for a number of projects/sites. I can see how educational and useful it would be. I hope to do so actually, with friends of mine that are teachers in the states.
