WC: Homework 2

Page history last edited by MrsK Books 10 years, 7 months ago

Welcome back to your second homework exploration.  This month's discoveries is all about the Plug-ins.  What works and what doesn't.  Which ones you will be using on your classroom wiki and which ones you might not use other than for this homework project.  As an example homework page, check out my summer Wiki page:

  • simply copy it... 
  • add a page to your "Wiki Camp" folder.... 
  • paste my formatted template on your new page... 
  • and edit out my examples.

 Then enjoy the process of creating interactive learning tools.


Interactive Media and How to use it:

  • Videos - tips on video recording software for teachers, and how to quickly embed videos on your wiki page

  • What to be aware of when using photos, video and podcasts (aka - no personal photos on a public wiki!)
