  7. 7. Post  Workshop  Assessment  Data  &  Analysis,  Participant  Evaluation  Data  &  Analysis,     and  Self-­‐Evaluation  Assessment  Data  &  Analysis:  Wiki’s  in  the  Classroom/  Pre-­‐test:   A.  What  is  a  Wiki?    Is  it  different  than  a  website?    How?   B. What  is  a  Web  2.0?    Is  it  different  than  a  website?    Is  it  different  than  a  Wiki?   C. Are  you  already  using  a  Wiki  or  Web  2.0  applications  in  your  classroom?    If  so,  How?    Data  Analysis  of  Pre-­‐test:  Eight  total  participants   A. All  participants  knew  what  a  Wikis  was.  Four  participants  could  not  identify  the  difference  between  a  Wiki  and  a  Website   and  four  participants  identified  that  a  Wiki  is  interactive  and  collaborative  where  a  website  is  not.   B. Two  students  could  define  a  Web  2.0  and  could  identify  that  a  Wiki  is  a  Web  2.0  website.  Six  participants  answered  they  did   not  know  or  were  not  sure.   C. Three  participants  were  already  using  Wikis  in  their  lesson  planning/classroom  and  five  participants  were  not  currently   using  Wikis  in  their  classroom.  Of  the  three  participants  already  using  Wikis  in  their  classroom,  none  identified  how.    Wiki’s  in  the  Classroom/  Post-­‐test:   A. What  is  a  Wiki?    Is  it  different  than  a  website?    How?   B. What  is  a  Web  2.0?    Is  it  different  than  a  website?    Is  it  different  than  a  Wiki?   C. Do  you  see  yourself  using  a  Wiki  or  Web2.0  applications  in  your  classroom  in  the  future?    Yes  or  No   D. Name  a  Web  2.0  application  discussed  in  this  Workshop.   E. Name  a  Wiki  website  discussed  in  this  Workshop.    Data  Analysis  of  Post-­‐test:  Eight  participants   A. All  eight  participants  could  define  and  identify  that  a  Wiki  is  interactive  and  collaborative;  whereas,  a  website  is  not.   B. All  eight  participants  could  define  Web  2.0  and  that  a  Wiki  is  a  Web  2.0  tool/website.   C. Seven  participants  answered  yes  that  they  could  see  themselves  using  a  Wiki  or  a  Web  2.0  in  their  classroom  and  one   participant  answered  maybe:   a. Yes  answer  ideas:  use  Wiki  for  vocabulary  and  digital  class  book  on  important  people  for  social  studies     b. Maybe  answer:  was  concerned  about  student  postings  and  about  students  that  may  not  have  access  to  the   internet  at  home   D. All  eight  participants  could  name  a  Web  2.0  discussed  in  the  workshop.   E. All  eight  participants  could  name  a  Wiki  website  discussed  in  the  workshop.     Assessment  evaluation  and  revisions  to  workshop:   The  post-­‐test  assessment  shows  that  the  participants  did  understand  the  concepts  of  Web  2.0  and  Wikis  by  the  end  of  the   workshop.  They  all  could  identify  the  Web  2.0  applications  and  Wiki  sites  that  were  discussed  in  the  workshop.  They  also   understood  that  Wikis  were  collaborative  and  interactive  versus  the  passive  viewing  of  material  on  a  website.    Three  out  of   eight  (37.5%)  of  participants  were  already  using  Wikis  prior  to  the  workshop.  After  completion  of  the  workshop,  seven  out  of   eight  (87.5%)  of  the  workshop  participants  answered  that  they  could  see  themselves  using  Wikis  in  their  classroom.       The  only  revision  I  would  make  in  the  future  is  to  make  sure  I  could  better  identify  the  participants  currently  using  Wikis  and   how  they  were  using  them  prior  to  the  workshop,  so  that  I  could  better  judge  the  increased  interest  and  motivation  to  use  Wikis   after  the  workshop.    I  think  I  would  email  this  question  out  to  all  the  participants  before  the  workshop  so  they  would  have  more   time  to  answer  this  question  in  detail.  Source  for  decoding  information:    Based  on  the  UbD  template  ©  Grant  Wiggins  &  Jay  McTighe                                                                                          Page  7  
  8. 8.  Participant  Evaluation  Data  and  Analysis:  Survey  questions:  Rate  on  scale  1  to  5  –  with  1  being  “strongly  disagree”  to  5  being  “strongly  agree”  Five  of  the  eight  participants  completed  the  evaluation  (three  did  not  return  the  evaluation  to  me)   • I  was  well  informed  about  the  objectives  of  this  workshop?     Average  score:    5   • This  workshop  lived  up  to  my  expectations.       Average  score:  5   • The  content  is  relevant  to  my  job.         Average  score:  5   • The  instructor  was  well  prepared.         Average  score:  5   • The  instructor  was  helpful.           Average  score:  5   • I  will  be  able  to  use  what  I  learned  in  this  workshop.     Average  score:  4.5  Survey  improvement  suggestions:  How  would  you  improve  this  workshop?    (the  participants  could  check  any  that  apply-­‐  but  none  were  checked)   • Provide  better  information  before  the  workshop.   • Clarify  the  workshop  objectives.   • Reduce  the  content  covered  in  the  workshop.   • Increase  the  content  covered  in  the  workshop.   • Update  the  content  covered  in  the  workshop.   • Improve  the  instructional  methods.   • Make  workshop  activities  more  stimulating.   • Improve  workshop  organization.    Participant  evaluation  analysis  and  revisions  to  the  workshop:  The  evaluations  of  the  workshop  were  very  good.  I  believe  that  I  met  the  overall  objective  of  the  workshop.  However,  I  was  disappointed  that  no  improvements  were  suggested.    Upon  reflection,  I  believe  this  was  a  time  issue.  The  workshop  was  at  the  end  of  the  school  day  for  the  participants,  and  I  feel  like  they  rushed  through  the  evaluation.  I  definitely  know  that  I  can  make  improvements  to  the  workshop,  which  I  will  discuss  further  in  my  self-­‐evaluation.    The  revision  I  would  make  to  the  workshop  would  be  to  make  sure  I  got  everyone’s  email  address  so  that  I  could  email  him  or  her  the  evaluation  after  the  workshop.    This  would  allow  the  participants  more  time  to  complete  the  evaluation,  and  hopefully,  they  would  reflect  and  give  me  more  suggestions.    I  would  also  make  sure  the  participants  understood  the  importance  of  making  suggestions  and  how  I  could  utilize  them  to  make  improvements  to  the  workshop.    I  would  also  include  a  prompt  for  additional  suggestion  and/or  comments  in  the  evaluation.        Source  for  decoding  information:    Based  on  the  UbD  template  ©  Grant  Wiggins  &  Jay  McTighe                                                                                          Page  8  
  9. 9. Workshop  Self-­‐evaluation:       In  general,  I  am  very  pleased  with  the  workshop.    It  was  received  well  and  the  participants  were  very    involved.    I  have  been  to  many  professional  workshops  where  the  participants  seem  to  be  watching  the  clock  and  waiting  for  the    workshop  to  end.    To  my  great  relief,  the  participants  were  interested,  motivated  and  were  eager  to  share  ideas  and  learn.     I  did  a  great  deal  of  research  and  planning  for  the  workshop.    This  definitely  paid  off,  since  I  felt  very  secure  in  my    knowledge  of  the  material  and  was  able  to  answer  participant  questions  with  confidence.    It  was  surprising  how  hard  it  was  to  keep    the  workshop  to  a  reasonable  length  and  still  allow  time  for  interaction  between  the  participants.    My  goal  was  to  not  only  present    the  information,  but  to  allow  them  the  time  to  explore  the  material  and  share  ideas.    I  felt  the  workshop  would  not  be  successful  if    the  participants  did  not  engage  with  other  and  share  lesson  planning  ideas  and  past  experiences  using  Wikis  and  Web  2.0    applications.     The  presentation  had  a  few  hiccups,  which  surprisingly  worked  to  increase  the  involvement  and  contribution  by  the    participants  to  the  overall  workshop.    I  was  unable  to  play  the  tutorials  for  Voki,  GoAnimate  and  Wikispaces  that  I  had    embedded  into  my  PowerPoint  presentation.  The  Cobb  County  Schools  IT  department  blocked  access.    I  then  had  to  work    with  the  participants  to  describe  and  demonstrate  Voki,  GoAnimate  and  how  to  set  up  a  Wikispaces  account.    Working  together  w e    were  able  to  display  on  laptops  a  participants  personal  Voki  and  I  was  able  to  show  my  GoAnimate.    This  actually  ending  up  being    fun,  and  the  participants  were  excited  to  share  ideas  and  personal  experiences.      Going  forward,  I  have  learned  the  hard  lesson  that    the  technology  in  your  presentation  has  to  be  supported  by  the  technology  at  the  site  of  the  workshop.    This  was  a  mistake  on  my    part,  but  also  a  valuable  learning  experience  for  the  future.    I  have  since  learned  how  to  display  these  tutorials  and  videos  in  my    presentation.     I  defined  the  success  of  the  workshop  by  the  following  factors:  the  technology  specialist  for  my  school  has  asked  me  to    share  these  types  of  ideas  and  workshops  with  our  staff  at  Bullard  Elementary  school  and  the  other  workshop  participants  were    genuinely  excited  at  the  possibilities  of  using  these  instructional  tools.    I  am  eager  to  share  my  knowledge  with  other    teachers  and  look  forward  to  my  next  opportunity.                    Source  for  decoding  information:    Based  on  the  UbD  template  ©  Grant  Wiggins  &  Jay  McTighe                                                                                          Page  9
