First of all, I think it was a fun project. The students worked hard on it, for the most part, but I think I gave them too much time. I noticed they got most of the work done the last two days. I think I was afraid that learning how to use wikis would take them longer than it actually did. Next time, I think I’ll make it a week-long project and leave it at that. Also, I think in the future that I’ll require the students to create wikis. I gave them more options this time, but I really liked the wiki format for constructing this project.
The students gave me permission to share their wikis with you.
- Woman World — a society completely run by and for the benefit of women.
- Utopian Experiment 211 A — a vision of a future run by psychology.
Two more groups will present on Monday when our class meets again.
