  • But what does that mean?I love the way this iron cross appears to be a part of the pavement. It has ridges and hollows where it sometimes appears to pop out above the pavement while at some points it appears to recede into the pavement itself. I think that’s what I mean by embedding wikis into the everyday fabric of our courses. At the beginning of the course they stick out of the pavement like a beacon as they are new and different for students, however, somewhere along the way they begin to embed themselves into the pavement until they become a part of the structure of the courses. We start small and grow more and more as tutors &amp; students become more confident &amp; can see the advantages. But we NEVER forget that it is ALL in the facilitation – not the tool!
  • I have a many ESL students doing Certificate III in Children’s Services and Aged care as well as some at Diploma level. We also have students with other difficulties ies a student with severe dyslexia. I am starting to use technology such as Voxopop and and other sound tech nology to assess students, record class sessions to later upload to a wiki for student to relisten to – cannot take notes Record oral assessments for AQTF and SkillsVic purposes
  • Get excited! – Excitement is infectious and maybe you can be instrumental in enthusing another teacher to have a goFind one tool and play with it – gain some confidence before trialing it with studentsPick a likely student or group of students to trial it on – pick one who is interested and willing to give it a goLearn from mistakes and improve – tell students you are new at this too. Get their feedback.Get the students excited – if students start to see the potential, they might add some pressure to the institution to put up some money to buy hardware eg a flip cameraGive yourself time to take on learning new things – Rome wasn’t built in a day. We took five years before technology was finally embedded into our Community House
