  • Introduction to Wikispaces – Eventbrite

    Wikispaces is hosting a free webinar. THe email to me today says:

    “Wikispaces Education Webinar: Join us on August 6 for our Education
    Webinar. We'll focus on features that teachers have found useful in
    their classrooms and hear from Nicole Naditz, a French educator and
    foreign language pedagogy trainer. Nicole has used wikis in her French
    classrooms and as resource pools for her colleagues. Join us as she
    shares her wikis including an e-pal exchange and a solar power project
    with a school in Burkina Faso.”

  • An effective wiki

    Learn central is doing some cool things (created by Elluminate) and although the interface is currently sort of spartan – there are some very powerful features in the group scheduling and room capabilities that we're planning to use, at first with our teachers, but eventually with students.

    This is a copy of the wiki grading rubric from last year's flat classroom project.
