Wikis, blogs and web publishing

  1. 1. Wikis, Blogs and Web Publishing By: Lauren Brodlo
  2. 2. Most Useful Tool  It is hard for me to decide which tool I have found to be the most useful because I really like all of the new tools. I like the Wiki space because I think it is a great tool for parent/teacher communication. I love having the igoogle as my homepage. I think having news, sports and weather in one location is great. Kidblog.org is my new favorite classroom tool. My students absolutely love using it!
  3. 3.  As of now, I feel that my biggest success is my kid blog, Brodlo’s Bloggers. My students love the blog and absolutely love seeing their ideas shared with the class.  My biggest challenge was the Wiki page. Although I find it to be a great place to organize ideas and to use as a classroom webpage, I was often very frustrated with the editing. I spent a lot of time moving items so that they were centered. After I would save it, it wouldn’t be centered any more….very frustrating! Successes and Challenges
  4. 4.  I have always been someone who enjoys online learning. I think that allows people the opportunity to really learn things on their own with the guidance of an instructor. Had I been in a class each week, I would have depended more on the instructor to explain things, instead of really learning how to do some things on my own. Moodle and Online learning
  5. 5. http://mssthirdgrade.wikispaces.com/  My wikispace was designed as a way to give parents of my third grade students information about our classroom. I have included the following pages:  Home- link to my e-mail  All About Me- background information about me  Reading, Math and Writing- gives parents the curriculum that I am teaching as well as resources that they can use to help their child at home. Wiki Space
  6. 6.  http://www.google.com/ig?t=3 (one of my tabs from my igoogle page) The igoogle is one of my favorite tools. I had no idea that something like this existed. I enjoy having the various tabs and all of the information on each tab. I love that I can put whatever I want onto my homepage. igoogle
  7. 7. http://kidblog.org/Brodlo/  KidBlog.org has been my favorite tool to use in my classroom. My students absolutely love going onto the blog and posting their comments. I think that they feel a true sense of ownership in their work because they can share their thoughts and ideas with their classmates. KidBlog.org…Brodlo’s Bloggers
  8. 8. http://animoto.com/play/8ZKwpkJv1tk51417nFhiWw Animoto is another one of my favorite tools to use for my classroom and for my personal use. It is such an easy tool to use to make a slideshow/video of your pictures. My students truly enjoyed seeing themselves on the slideshow and it didn’t take too much time to complete! Animoto
