Random Thoughts: Change, Primary Sources & Other Stuff

Thing # 10: Wikis

Posted on: March 25, 2008

I’m meeting my original goal–getting my feet wet, picking up some new ideas for online teaching and trying to figure out which options are the most workable both for me and busy adult students. As I explored the 23 Things on a Stick Wiki I noticed the value of transferrable skills and how the editing feature looked just like what I use in Desire2Learn. The Sandbox wasn’t as user friendly.

The potential for creating wonderful collaborative environments in our schools is tremendous. What staff development opportunities are school media specialists providing to help teachers?

A thought: Will our young students soon think that wikis, blogs and other Web 2.0 tools that we are learning are BORING. What will be next for them?

Hello Mary Alice,

I’ve spent some days in August working on a blog and wiki.

I thought I would finally get back to you and your invitation.

I’m curious, when I submit this comment, do you get notified of it or do you have to come across it before you notice it?

I’m anxious to start swapping ideas.

Can I send you an invite to my wiki and blog?
