Learning technology development for teachers
- Hi All,
I've had a busy week here working on my blog and would like to share some of the new postings.
My main preoccupation this week has been working with wiki sites. I've
created three postings connected with these and they show:
How to create a wiki:
How to use wikis with students
and how to use wikis for teacher development
The postings also include six video tutorials which take you through
the process of setting up, changing, editing and embedding video into
you free wiki site.
I've also created a couple of wiki projects which you and or your
students can get involved in. The first is for teachers. Have a look
It is aimed at helping teachers to learn IT related terminology and ask
questions about technology. Feel free to look, play and participate.
The second is for students and anyone who wants to be involved and is
an experiment in collaborative writing. It's based on the Cinderella
story and aims to explore the story from different perspectives.
Again please feel free to register and play around with the wiki to see
how it works etc. Don't worry, there isn't much you can break!
My final posting for this week was on an amazing new website I
discovered which has a collection of online dictation activities. It
also helps you to create your own.
Find out more about that at:
I've also been busy on my Quick shout blog: http://quickshout.blogspot.com/
There are some very quick news articles there on:
The $100 laptop and what it can do
A marvelous free open source animation that you can use in class
Some free software that could make interactive whiteboards obsolete
and last but not least a great source of free online Educational TV Channels.
Hope you find at least something here useful
