Wikis Blog Web Publishing

  1. 1. Wikis, Blogs and Web Publishing By: Wendy Siwek April 2010
  2. 2. Which Tool Was Most Useful? <ul><li>When I first saw this question I thought it would be easy to answer. However, it is probably the most difficult to answer, because all of the tools I used and learned in this class are extremely useful in many and different ways. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Wikis <ul><li>I recently went to a workshop on wikis and I thought these could be useful, but did not full understand the benefits of them. </li></ul><ul><li>This class has definitely changed my mind! </li></ul><ul><li>I can see this benefiting myself and my fellow colleagues by allowing us to share ideas and lessons easily. </li></ul><ul><li>I hope to share my wiki during an upcoming professional development meeting. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Wikis Continued <ul><li>I thought the wiki was very easy to create; however, it is definitely a “work in progress”. </li></ul><ul><li>Developing the wiki can be addicting, because I keep thinking of all the information I would like to add, and hope to add in the future. </li></ul><ul><li>I thought the wiki examples we were given were excellent and I can appreciate the work involved in them, especially after beginning my own. </li></ul><ul><li>My wiki: http://siwek.wikispaces.com/ </li></ul>
  5. 5. RSS Feeds <ul><li>The RSS video in plain English was very helpful. </li></ul><ul><li>I used iGoogle as my reader it was easy to navigate, and I really liked how it organized all the information. </li></ul><ul><li>I was able to subscribe to many feeds that interested me both professionally and personally. </li></ul><ul><li>I found the education feeds very useful and informative. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Blogs <ul><li>Like the RSS in plain English, the Blogging in plain English was an excellent way to present the concept of blogging. </li></ul><ul><li>I enjoyed the ideas for blogging in the classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>Setting up a blog was very easy and user-friendly. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Blogs Continued <ul><li>I created two blogs: </li></ul><ul><li>http://kidblog.org/MrsSiweksClass/ </li></ul><ul><li>http://computerteach-wsiwek.blogspot.com/ </li></ul><ul><li>I hope to use kidblog with my students to receive student input and feedback for projects we complete throughout the school year. </li></ul><ul><li>The computer teach blog I would like to use for professional development and collaboration from fellow educators. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Animoto <ul><li>Excellent avenue for publishing short video clips online. Extremely user friendly! </li></ul><ul><li>I thoroughly enjoyed making this video, and even showed my own kids who are 6 and 8 years old how to make a video with me. </li></ul><ul><li>I hope to use this tool with my school’s technology club. </li></ul><ul><li>One of the videos I created: http://animoto.com/play/UBV7pihCCFKEslnFc0tscQ </li></ul>
  9. 9. Moodle and Online Learning <ul><li>This is my second online class, and I cannot wait to take more! </li></ul><ul><li>I think the moodle is extremely well organized. I really like how each module is categorized with lessons, videos, articles, and examples. </li></ul><ul><li>This allows the student (me) to really understand and grasp each skill and concept. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Moodle and Online Learning Continued <ul><li>I really like the freedom of working on the assignments when I have time. </li></ul><ul><li>I also enjoy the professionalism and online interaction of the teacher and my students. </li></ul><ul><li>All of my questions were answered and explained in a timely manner, which helped me greatly. </li></ul><ul><li>I have already signed up for the next online class, and I have and would recommend this type of class highly. </li></ul>
