Enthusiastic VKB Group

It was interesting how our group get together, especially because everyone had quite a different idea about VKB. Now we want to connect our ideas together as it is promoted by our organizers here.
And we must say that the program here also gave us some fresh ideas and thank you for introducing us to eachother, we are looking forward to visualize the results of our topic, Visual Knowledge Building.

This entry is mainly based on the experience of Raimo von Konow….

Raimo & Christina


Mastering your Master…

We (Wey and Yana) have now created a Wiki Page with information concerning the MA-thesis. It includes formalities, links to resources and some insight into our experiences and approaches in dealing with these issues.


DAY 1: Lectures, project presentations and discussions

The first day of the seminar is nearly over – still having the welcome party before us. We started listening to lectures by Torsten Meyer (What could Visual Knowledge Building mean?), Stefan Sonvilla-Weiss (Visual Knowledge Building and surveillance culture) and Julia Schawe (Fake in web2.0 as a form of digital resistance).

After lunch the students active part of the seminar began – with presentations of the group-projects. First was Raimo talking about “Ubiquitous education”. Or speaking in his words: ubication and ubigogy. This presentation was followed by a lively discussion about the digital divide, cultural differences and how these questions are connected to the topic of ubiquitous education speaking in terms of ePedagogy Design.

The next presentation was held by Owen about Blogs, Wikis and Blikis (a word Owen tried to avoid ;-)). It was mainly focused on the differences in use and the advantages and disadvantages of each in pedagogical processes.

Lincoln closed the day giving a short introduction to the topics of the Amagezzi-group. Camilla will give a longer presentation via Skype from Honolulu. To be prepared everybody should read the text she provides at her website due to Saturday.
