Published on

These are a simplified version of my slides from my seminar on Wikis - Literacy -Curriculum for Excellence & 4 Capacities that I presented on 25th September 2008.

If you saw the seminar you'll understand why they have been simplified!

I dropped out of the slideshow in order to show some examples of the pupils' wikis. I'll take some screengrabs and post them as a separate slideshow later.

Feel free to comment and ask questions!
