Please describe your experience with the Rotisserie during this BOLD series. How did your rotisserie discussions differ from other online discussions you've had? Were your posts and the posts of others substantively different that they would have been using other discussion tools? Did you participate more or less in the discussions due to the nature of the Rotisserie discussions? Did you take more or less time writing your answers than you would have on a typical discussion board?
In fact I was impressed with the whole rotisserie format. At the beginning I have to acknowledge that it took me some time to get acquainted with the system. But overall, the experience was great on several levels. It was engaging in the way the different participants were linked to each other, which created a strong platform for reflexion. It was not like if you were just writing posts, but it provided enough room to think in proper ways about the issues and the way participants were able to disseminate their points among each other. In terms of learning, the accent was also highlighted by positioning a technological touch that enabled cross-thinking and mostly this trans-cultural framework that in ways gave us a glimpse about the universal context under which issues of development and human progress should be taken with pro-active and participatory measures.
Please explain how you see the technology enabling cross thinking.
