    • An Online Journey: Wikis, Blogs, and Web Publishing Presented by Carol Pletcher
    • The Most Useful Online Tool
      • Wikispaces proved to be the best fit for me.
      • Provides a perfect platform for collaborative purposes. Allows for remote participation between buildings in a district.
      • Is as interactive as the user desires.
      • Furnishes an alternative to traditional homework assignments.
    • Successes!
      • I stepped out of my comfort zone of the old ways to deliver content or information.
      • The tools that I used will definitely be a part of my repertoire.
      • Creating a Wiki for use with my students inspired me to create one for use with my fellow second grade teachers. We started a new literacy program across the district so my Wiki will focus on how we are implementing this program.
    • Challenges 
      • Building the Wiki required an immense amount of time.
      • I ‘lost’ work both on the Wiki and on Glogster.
      • The technology available at my school does not support a whole class lesson on using the Wiki.
      • The RSS is still a bit of a mystery to me. I seem to subscribe to blogs and sites that may or may not show up on my feed. I will not abandon it though!
      • I did not generate an education-centered blog. At this time , it does not supplant the eBoard tool which my district provides. I chose a personal blog about my 2010 resolution to make a unique dinner each time I cook.

    • The Moodle Experience
      • This was my very first online course. Most of the hurdles I had to overcome were of my own making. Not being very disciplined, I tend to procrastinate. Having less structure in which to meet the course requirements meant I was in charge of when things got done- yikes! Yet, the content of this course was so compelling. Once I started the first module I could hardly stay away. I woke up thinking “Wiki” or “Glogster” and of all the possibilities. I can say without reservation, I would definitely participate in another moodle, I whole-heartedly endorse anyone taking one of these courses, and most of all~ I wish my county in New Jersey made these available!
    • My Wikispace
      • This is the work I am the most proud of having accomplished! I plan on making it a restricted page when this class concludes and then inviting my students.
      • www.jfcooperclassroom.wikispaces.com
    • Really Simple Syndication RSS
      • I started with Google Reader and then migrated to iGoogle. I have added a few of the technology blogs and some education ones.
      • The greatest benefit to me personally is being able to subscribe to news feeds from Jackson, Wyoming, and the Space Coast of Florida where I have family. I also have included a feed to the local newspaper in Cherry Hill where I teach.
    • Glogster
      • Now here’s a site anyone could have LOTS of fun using! The most user-friendly tool I worked with for this course!
