Collaborative Projects on Wikieducator

The new educational model that is emerging with the introduction of ICT in the classroom and in particular the powerful collaboration tools and social networks of Web 2.0, is progressively changing the role of the teacher and the student and transforming the learning experience in a thrilling adventure of mutual discovery. Due to its enormous potential for collaborative work, wikis are increasingly being used, their application possibilities are many and varied, mostly in asynchronous cooperation between teacher-student, student groups, and groups of teachers. Gladys Gahona and Nellie Deutsch have been collaborating online on Wikieducator, a powerful wiki platform and various web tools and social networks, developing content, facilitating workshops, moderating live online sessions, and networking with other educators worldwide. Meet Wikieducator, an international community of educators who collaborate and share content.

Gladys Gahona and Nellie Deutsch have been collaborating in the development of online workshops for a number of months on WikiEducator, an international community dedicated to the design, development, and delivery of free content for learning.
