Sharing ideas introducing wikis
About. A course based around the action research cycle, looking at the use of Wikis in education. We have used elements of this course material (see below) elsewhere on the wiki.
Pedagogical content. When used properly, wikis(tool) are powerful tools that enable sharing of information and knowledge. This course explores how they can be used in the classroom to improve teaching and learning and enable collaboration(ta) on group work(ta) projects. It also covers important considerations such as e-safety(topic) and e-skills(topic) as well as ways to engage in sharing practice(topic). (edit)
