  • You decide your message and then decide what media/ platform to use.
  • Have a personal account
  • Create an official pageChoose public figure (yes trainers and educators are public figuresE.g. Professor Lovely Kumarhttp://www.facebook.com/digitalvidyaAn official page does not have options of groups yetHowever it keeps personal and professional persona’s differentMake sure your class groups are closed groups, so people have to request to join and see the group.It often helps manage the groups if you choose a couple of learners in the group to give admin responsibility (but make sure they are learners who use facebook regularly!) It can engage some Trainees who might not engage in class - you’ll be amazed at the trainees positive response - just as out bound trips change relationships positively, so do virtual out-of-class activities. - it helps them to see that you care!

  • A slidecast is a term that is used to describe an audio podcast that is combined with a slideshow or diaporama presentation. ...
  • http://www.teachersfirst.com/content/wiki/wikiideas2.cfmWiki ideas appropriate for most subjects and grade levels: Study guides made by student groups for themselves and peers: each group prepares the guide for one aspect of the unit or responsibility rotates: one unit guide per semester. Vocabulary lists and examples of the words in use, contributed by students (ongoing throughout the year). The wiki as the organizational and intellectual epicenter of your class (see the Aristotle experiment)- Wiki all assignments, projects, collaboration, rubrics, etc. Products of research projects, especially collaborative group projects: civil war battles, artistic movements, the American electoral process, diseases and prevention, etc. Remember that the products do not have to be simply writing. They can include computer files, images, videos, etc. Creating an organizational structure for the content is an important part if the project. An annotated collection of EXAMPLES from the non-school world for anything: supply/demand, capitalism, entrepreneurship, triangles, alliterations, vertebrates or invertebrates, etc. Include illustrations wherever possible. What I Think Will Be on the Test wiki: a place to log review information for important concepts throughout the year, prior to taking the “high stakes” test, AP test, or final exam. Students add to it throughout the year and even from year to year. An “everything I needed to know I learned in Ms.Teachername’s class” wiki where students add their own observations of ways the class knowledge has spilled over into the “real world.” For example, a student might write about actually using a simple algebraic equation to figure out dimensions for cutting lumber or foamcore for a display or write about ways that her friend shows tragic hubris and is heading toward a fall. A travelogue from a field trip or NON-field trip that the class would have liked to take as a culmination of a unit of study: Our (non) trip to the Capital and what we (wish) we saw. Articles by students who miss school for family trips,  written about their travels on the class wiki, relating what they see to concepts learned before they left: mammals I saw on the way to Disney, geometric shapes in the Magic Kingdom, the most cost-effective lunches while traveling, etc. Remember: hotels usually have Internet access. Make the world a part of your classroom! An FAQ (or NSFAQ- Not So Frequently Asked Questions) wiki on your current unit topic. Have students post KWL entries and continue adding questions that occur to them as the unit progresses. As other students add their “answers,” the wiki will evolve into a student-created guide to the topic. Example: Civil War FAQ or Biomes FAQ. You may find that the FAQ process can entirely supplant traditional classroom activities, especially if you seed a few questions as the teacher. This would also depend on whether you have consistent computer access on a daily basis, a luxury many schools do not have.Wiki ideas for younger students (elementary): An annotated virtual library: listings and commentary on independent reading students have done throughout the year collaborative book reviews or author studiesAn elementary class “encyclopedia” on a special topic, such as explorers or state history – to be continued and added to each year! A virtual tour of your school as you study “our community” in elementary grades A travelogue from a field trip or NON- field trip that the class would have liked to take as A culmination of a unit of study: Our (non) trip to the Capital and what we (wish) we saw. Detailed and illustrated descriptions of scientific or governmental processes: how a bill becomes a law, how mountains form, etc.A wiki “fan club” for you favorite author(s). Family Twaditionwiki- elementary students share their family’s ways of preparing Thanksgiving dinner or celebrating birthdays (anonymously, of course) and compare them to practices in other cultures they read and learn about. A Where is Wanda wiki: a wiki version of the ever-favorite Flat Stanley project. Have each Wanda host post on the wiki, including the picture they take with Wanda during her visit. Even better: keep an ongoing Google Earth placemarker file to add geographic visuals to Wanda’s wonderful wanderings as a link in the wiki. WOW! Where in the world IS Wiki Wanda? So how do I use wikis with my class(es)?Roll over the subjects and levels at the left to read ideas for class wikis, just to get you thinking.I already know what I want to do. I WANT TO WIKI! Just show me how to get started. Wiki ideas for math:A calculus wiki for those wicked-long problems so the class can collaborate on how to solve them (a “wicked wiki”?) A geometry wiki for students to share and rewrite proofs (a geometwiki?). What a great way to see the different approaches to the same problem! Applied math wiki: students write about and illustrate places where they actually used math to solve a problem. Procedures wiki: groups explain the steps to a mathematical procedure, such as factoring a polynomial or converting a decimal to a fraction. Pure numbers wiki: student illustrate numbers in as many ways possible: as graphics to count, as mathematical expressions, etc. Elementary students can show graphic illustrations of multiplication facts, for example. Wiki ideas for science: A student- made glossary of scientific terms with illustrations and definitions added by the class (using original digital photos or those from other online Creative Commons sources, such as Flickr). Linking to separate pages with detailed information would allow the main glossary list to remain reasonably short. A taxonomy of living things with information about each branch as you study Biology over a full year. Designs of experiments (and resulting lab reports) for a chemistry class. Observations from field sites, such as water-testing in local streams, weather observations from across your state, or bird counts during migratory season. Collaborate with other schools. Detailed and illustrated descriptions of scientific processes: how mountains form, etc. A physics wiki for those wicked-long problems so the class can collaborate on how to solve them (a “wicked wiki”?). Wiki ideas for social studies: A mock-debate between candidates, in wiki form (composed entirely based on research students have done on the candidate positions). A collaborative project with students in another location or all over the world: A day in the life of an American/Japanese/French/Brazilian/Mexican family. (This one would require finding contacts in other locations, of course). A collection of propaganda examples during a propaganda unit. Detailed and illustrated descriptions of governmental processes: how a bill becomes a law, etc. A “fan club” for your favorite president(s) or famous female(s). A virtual tour of your school as you study “our community” in elementary grades. A local history wiki, documenting historical buildings, events, and people within your community. Include interviews with those who can tell about events from the World War II era or the day the mill burned down, etc. Allow adult community members to add their input by signing up for “membership” in the wiki. This project could continue on for years and actually be a service to the community. Perhaps the area historical society would provide some assistance, if you can get them to think beyond the closed stacks of their protected collections! A document-the-veterans wiki for those in your community who served in the military. Interview them and photograph them, including both their accounts and your students’ documentation and personal reflections on the interviews. A  travel brochure wiki: use wikis to “advertise” for different literary, historical, or cultural locations and time periods: Dickens’ London, fourteenth century in Italy in Verona and Mantua ( Romeo and Juliet),  The Oklahoma Territory, The Yukon during the Gold Rush, Ex-patriot Paris in the Twenties,  etc. http://www.teachersfirst.com/content/wiki/wikiideas1.cfmAn annotated virtual library: listings and commentary on independent reading students have done throughout the year collaborative book reviews or author studiesAn elementary class “encyclopedia” on a special topic, such as explorers or state history – to be continued and added to each year! A virtual tour of your school as you study “our community” in elementary grades A travelogue from a field trip or NON- field trip that the class would have liked to take as A culmination of a unit of study: Our (non) trip to the Capital and what we (wish) we saw.
