Wikipedia Reflection

April 13th, 2011 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Hi all — After all four groups have presented tomorrow, I am going to ask each of you, individually, to take 15-20 minutes to answer the follow questions in a blank Microsoft Word document, save it as “Wikipedia Group Project reflection” with your name, and then email it to me.

1) What were your impressions of Wikipedia as a informational resource before you began this project? How often did you refer to Wikipedia and for what purpose(s)?

2) Has completing this project changed the way you look at the layout, organization, and/or use of sources on a Wikipedia page? Has it changed the way you discuss Wikipedia with friends, classmates, family, or co-workers?

3) Have you thought about the way that your Wikipedia article might change over time as other people edit it? (Do you already notice places where people might insert more information about your topic?)

4) What have you observed about the ways in which creating this article differed from completing an essay, like the paper on Emily Dickinson?

5) How well have the members of your group worked together? Fulfilled their self-assigned roles? Completed the tasks they volunteered for or were assigned? (Please try to provide at least one example that illustrates your response.) 

 6) To what extent do you feel like you are more of an “expert” on your group’s topic than you were before you started this project? (What does it mean, to you, to be an “expert”?)
