I would like to share with people who are currently using Wikis in their classrooms. I have just started using the Wiki, but would like to see how other teachers are using the wikis, especially in the elementary classroom.

Thank you, from the foothils of the Adirondacks!

After using Glogster in the classroom, I am so impressed with what the students were able to achieve with the software and the amount of energy they gave their project. There wasn't a single child in the classroom who didn't want to develop the content necessary to developing this online poster. Parents and children were both amazaed at where technology integration has taken us.

A new item of interest is JustinTV.

These are two projects I did in 2008 with my 5th and 6th grade students using a wiki.

http://landmarks.wikispaces.com/  A 2-week independent study on “Landmarks
Around the World”

http://gogreensheldon.wikispaces.com/  This was a short unit on “Going Green” in my
class.

Hi Carol,  I do love the Future of Education and in the past I've joined and participated in the eliminate sessions.  This time of year I've joined Images in Education which is a 6 week online class for learning how to use images. I need to check it out for this year too. I constantly read blogs and especially like Sue Waters from Australia who blogs about edublogs. I love the Student Challenge Blog that Sue Water and Miss Watts offer twice a year.  They now have a teacher challenge  blog where they teach how to add features to your blog.  Have you seen these?

 

I did use wikis in my classroom. I have a dozen or more wikis on various topics.  The one I like the most was my wiki on Landmarks Around the World. Kids were in partners and were just learning to add photos and to write.  The trick was that two could not be writing at the same time. I loved that they could access it from home too.  While working at Swanton School with technology I created a wiki with resources for teachers. I'm not sure it got much use. I set up a wiki for grade level teams and each teacher had a page. My hope was that they would share resources and see each other's contribution.

 

I'll post my links on your wall.
