Emily says: I love our wikispaces! We can see what other people think about Maths so it helps us to learn. It has lots of brilliant stuff on here (e.g. PLTS). You can not only contribute but also see what other people have done, and check them.
The wiki is such a great idea. It is fun, yet educational at exactly the same time. Not only are we learning IT skills but also team working and independent enquiring. I think that this site will really help us in the future. Also I agree with Niamh, it is really easy to keep in contact with Mrs Young.
Josey says: Wikis are great for collaborating with other people especially if we are working on group projects. They are also great for talking to our teacher about work we don't understand or need help with. Wikis are also brilliant for doing collaborative homework on.
Yes, because I can keep track of what I am doing to revise and how and can think about how this helped me to learn what I set out to do and it is good as you can keep a track record of what you have done.
I think it is quite helpful because then you know exactly how you have revised and reflect on what are the best ways to revise and the revision tips that work well. You could also share what you have been doing with your other classmates.
You might think of something that is a good idea to help you with revision, so you just type it in so you don't forget it. Then you can look back and remember. Also, others will see what you have written in your Learning Journal, so they might get ideas about how to revise. The teacher can also make sure that you are revising enough.
I sometimes find it helpful, to make us really think about what we have been revising and making sure we know and feel confident with all subjects. However, sometimes I feel that I didn't really state what I was revising, more like how I am feeling about the exam.
Yes, it is very helpful! You may get ideas from them about how you can revise. For instance, they might have said: 'I am going to put sticky notes around the house with key words and definitions on them‘ And you'll think: That's a good idea. I've never done that before. I'll try it out!
I think it helps because you can communicate with others without being right next to them. I also like it because you can play games that help you revise and make cool mind maps to stick in my bedroom.
