MySchome report
« on: September 02, 2008, 04:56:03 PM »
MySchome was mentioned in this board earlier, and I thought those that were involved in the production of it (and also those that weren't) could come together and help the staff write things up by producing a report evaluating MySchome. My thoughts so far for this include:

Schome:

-what are its aims?


The Schome Park Programme:

- what was it?
-how did it start?
- who was involved?
-what activities did we engage in?


MySchome summary:

-what was it?
-what topics were covered?
-how did the project begin?


Personal development?

-what personal skills were developed when writing/producing the magazine? (Refer back to the Knowledge Age Skills?)

Participation?

-who became involved?
-why did these people become involved?
-who was the target audience?


Review:

-what the idea a success?
-what were the reactions of the target audience?
-would a second edition have been possible?


All of these ideas need expanding however. Would anybody like to get involved and help write something up? There's no obligation to participate if you helped out with the produection of the magazine, and if you didn't write an article your views and responses are very welcome. :)

could you adapt this from the space experiment about schome aprk and it participents

Our team comprises eight core team members aged 14 to 17 years old from all over the UK who are taking part in the Schome Project (www.schome.ac.uk) based at the Open University, Milton Keynes.  The Schome Park Project is an education innovation research project using two private islands on the Teen Grid of the virtual environment Second Life, in conjunction with an online forum and wiki (Note the demarcation in the nomenclature; Schome refers to the educational project and  s.c.h.o.m.e. refers to the proposed instrument). The Schome Park Project started on the 12th of March 2007 and although most of us were in NAGTY (http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/nagty/), we hadn’t really ‘met’ until the start of the project. The whole proposal will have been discussed and written through these mediums. The team have only ever met in real life once during the trip to meet the engineer at Surrey Satellites Technology Limited and therefore the communication has only really been through the internet through the forum and wiki, as the closed Island in teen second life has been temporarily closed. Communication through these mediums has been a critical aspect of the project.  Unlike other entrants, our team have only had one opportunity to physically meet to discuss our entry.  Instead, we have had to find ways to discuss and develop our ideas within Second Life and other internet resources, thus making our entry unique.

That's a good idea; it would save time as well. Thanks Topper :)
