Wikis and Blogs for Collaboration
This article was submitted by elementary teacher Mrs. Kristy Wied.
Wikis and blogs are being used in the gifted classroom to enhance the reading and threaded discussions between students at both Harry S Truman Elementary School and Western Salisbury Elementary School as they read various novels. Students are learning about wikis and blogs and how to use the tools for communication and collaboration. There are a total of seven level books the students are working on across grade levels ranging from Kindergarten through grade 5. Soon the students will be working on creating their own book trailers!
Here are some screenshots to demonstrate how the children are using the technology for collaboration.
