This awesome website was found by my students. It is called "getting tricky with wikis" and has every trick you can imagine for making a wiki do cool things. I love how my students found this. I was in my classroom and kept going "wow, how did you do that." so, after two days of this project, they were blowing me away. That is because they've learned how to search for and find tutorials. Bookmark this one if you use wikispaces.
This is a fascinating permission form hybrid because it incorporates blogs, wikis, permission to read certain novels and watch certain videos ALL in one permission form. It would be one that high school literature teachers would want to look at using. I like how it discloses how students are identified. I may adapt something like this.
This is a nice example because it includes the addition of new content but also editing of existing content to correct mistakes. It shows that the student read the work of the other student and added her own contribution.
This is an excellent post-reflective post from a fantastic student. You can see that she drafted in a word processor and pasted it in and then embedded the videos. Knowing how to use features of various programs in tandem is part of being fluent in software. Not just can they use one program or another but can they use them together to become more efficient and effective in the task at hand.
The AAS students are doing an excellent job (many of them) leaving comments on their edits, this is something that all Flat Classroom teachers should work towards. My compliments.
If you look at this editing tab, you can see that GrantG did a great job in his comments of documenting what he did. If we can get more students documenting their work as they edit, it makes the process of collaborative writing more powerful and faster as well as the ability to see what happened where.
""I wrote an introductory paragraph for our section. I asked my teacher and she said that because our topic has to do with current news, we can organize it in a way that includes introduction and conclusion paragraphs with a more list-like format in the middle. This is the reason I added a section for examples. Feel free to add relevant current news information as you find it!""
Wikia is a massively growing website where people create wikis and remix content on video games, entertainment, and lifestyle issues. It is sort of a mix of graphics, wikis, and entertainment and shows how collaborative spaces are reaching every aspect of our lives.
An excellent article from the National Writing project website about how wikis are used in a seventh grade classroom in South Carolina. The article quotes research and practical examples. She says "A wiki website has provided my students with the opportunity to create, alter, organize and share their learning..."
This is a nice example of students using the discussion tab on the NetGen project.
