As you all already know we are using our new blog for our seminars contents. God save the net!
Next Monday we’ll meet again so as to go on with our wiki, whiteboard and google documents learning! Did you manage to upload songs onto the wiki? Have you started creating your own wikis for your students? As a matter of fact, I’ve only read some comments written that day and some editing about mix ability classes!
We’ll talk about all that next Monday.
How are you all getting on with your ICT skills? Last seminar I wasn’t very successful at uploading mp3 songs on BlipTv and embedding the code into the wiki! I’ll try that again on November 30th and I hope everything will work properly.
I think it could be a very good idea to start thinking and/or planning how to use wikis with students:
- Who with?
- what for?
- what type of task?
- how often?
- what do I expect to get from that?
- how am I going to assess students’ work?
- how am I going to guide/help students to do that?
- what do I need to prepare so that students may use the wiki in the classroom?
I think that if we think over/ prepare the answers to all those questions we may start creating particular wikis to meet our needs! Remember a wiki is like a web page and students will need internet addresses and instructions, guides, grids… on what they’ve got to do.
We won’t see each other next week, what is a pity!!
Our next seminar will be held on November 16th and we’ll go on whiteboarding, wikiing and gmailing!!
In the meanwhile you are warmly invited to add and change things in our wiki or write any comments, questions, suggestions… you wish either here, on the blog, or on the wiki itself.
As you know, we’ve fixed a sort of double task for our seminar work: on the one hand we’ll learn a bit about how to handle the whiteboard and on the other hand we’ll go on learning about our wiki, so that all of us may be fully engaged learning new things! In addition to that I have thought of starting sharing gmail documents (??) I’m not so sure about when to start this. We’ll discuss it on Monday.
Here you are Francisco Muñoz’s presentation. Brilliant, isn’t it?
