Brief excerpt from interview: I was hoping it would be just a little bit more collaborative, but I think that the setup in the classroom [where they sit in rows] wasn't quite conducive to the kind of collaborative work I was hoping they'd do. We ended up having so much to talk about that they did less group work. Otherwise, I think because they started seeing each other's projects from the very beginning of the semester... they would send me material for each other... They helped each other out in that way. It was a learning community, and they had a lot of affection for each other and a lot of respect. I think because they saw the presentations... they were really impressed by each other's work. We talked a lot about spatial politics. We didn't talk about class, which we could have. I think we should have done that... It was nice because we had different areas of expertise: some knew Hawaiian language, others had history in art history, others knew hula and could talk about how different moves represent different places. We did use AVA Konohiki, which is this beautiful virtual kind of mapping site. We used the Papakilo database, which is all the moʻolelo in Hawaiian Language.
