Using Wikis with younger students
Glad to know that you are a teacher of 12 year-old students in the First & Middle School near Worcester in the U.K. Interestingly, I am also in the city of Worcester in Massachusetts here in the U.S. www.ci.worcester.ma.us, which I believe has some historical connections with the city of Worcester in the U.K.
- I was also involved with a middle school for a couple years and created a blog at http://www.webstermass.blogspot.com to connect the school, Webster Middle School with the town community, thus making it easier for parents and guardians to find what their students are doing in school.
- I moved out to do more computer-related training for students and their parents in a community.
- I did a six-week consulting for pastors at the Pentecost Leadership Training & Retreat Center at http://www.pentecostleadership.blogspot.com.
- Right now I am involved with teaching of an African language as a second language for native English speakers at Harvard University http://www.aaas.fas.harvard.edu/african_language_program/index.html.
My goal is to graduate into using wikis in addition to blogs for educational purposes generally and the learning of African language in particular.
