In today’s conference workshop I will be exploring four important issues relating to learning and teaching strategies for using online tools:
- How the purpose of your site relates to its form
- The intended teacher-student dynamic online
- Students and internet safety
- Getting students involved and monitoring contributions
Please respond with comments to this post if you have any questions, information or anecdotes from your own teaching context.

For anyone who came to my presentation last Wednesday – this is a pretty good introductory video on how to create a wiki using PB wiki. It is 10mins long, but covers all the basics.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
I’ve just finished creating a new wiki, this time for my Year 9 class, and this time it is one that I am actually going to use!
I’ve created two other wikis before – one for my HSC class, which I made using wikispaces. My Year 12s were struggling with the blog as it was, so the wiki never really got a start there. The other wiki I made was a general purpose one, which I imagined all of my classes would contribute to, on every subject that they studied. This way all of my classes, from years 7-12, over time would come to access this kind of mega-source of information. What a plan! What a community! But I decided not to run with the idea, because I don’t think the students really will go for the idea…I’m not convinced it’ll be so much fun adding to the site unless you really know the others that are making it too.
I’ve added a couple of YouTube videos on using PB wiki to my vodpod (click here or in the right-hand side bar). Anyone else out there using a wiki ATM? What is (not) working for you?
