For our culminating project, we will be compiling a page on the intersavvy wiki about digital literacy on the secondary level. As members of a three year team, we found that our interests lie in many different places. We have incorporated Web 2.0 tools into the daily environment of our classrooms, and our interests have lead us all to pursue different passions. When the option came up to contribute to the wiki being formed, we felt that this was a good choice, helping us to ‘pay forward’ some of the amazing things that we have learned over the past three years.
- Problem, Issue, or Possibility
- Objectives and Assessment
- Implementation Plan
- Evaluation and Results
– Find a method for organizing the resources
– Be aware of different resources that might fit well in the parameters
– Create a system of hyperlinks and annotated descriptions.
– Create a system to continually update page
Throughout this process, we found that we were more likely to discuss what we were doing in the classroom and to share best practices. In some ways, the project got in the way of productive sharing opportunities. Some of us took our skills with google applications to another level after meeting to focus on this project. In some cases, as in the video above, two classes collaborated using google docs as a peer-reviewing tool. See below for links to the “things” that we have been doing. Interestingly enough, trying to complete this project actually enabled us to collaborate at a different level.
