Sept 06

Part of the remit of the Aspire Pilot project was to develop a network of people interested in building visions of schome (ie the schome community). Criteria for evaluating the success of this endeavour (ie the health of the schome community) included:

  • the number of people who are part of the community
  • their level of activity/engagment
  • the quality of interaction

The schome community interacts in a number of different ways, including:

  1. face to face and/or via video conference
  2. by phone, skype or netmeeting
  3. by email
  4. through WikiWorks (both viewing, creating and editing pages)
  5. through the schome community forum
  6. through other means, such as Second Life

This summary focusses primarily on items 4 and 5 above (ie WikiWorks and the schome community forum).
