This is all I could think about when he was talking about dig:
This video brought to light some very interesting ideas about using wiki-spaces both in and out of the classroom. Throughout my entire college coursework I was always told NEVER to use wikipedia as a source because of many of the reasons that the speaker presented. He makes a very valid point however when he states that text books are not always accurate either, either because of the book being an old edition or in some instances, corporate agenda.
I particularly like the idea of flat classrooms that he presented, it will make a student feel so much more empowered knowing that they are apart of the process rather than just being talked at. Calling a student a consultant, what a forward thinking idea.
This video brought to my attention the benefit that can be gained from using wiki-spaces
