Jim Rusconi was someone I met at Building Learning Communities this summer, and it looks like he’s one teacher that’s taken blogs and wikis to heart. He’s been keeping up in his own Weblog, has been trying out Moodle with his kids, and now looks like he’s set to use a wiki to construct his own Computer Graphics class text.
I’m going to be really interested to watch and see how that develops since I think I’m on the verge of dipping my toe into those waters as well. I’ve been working with one of the Media Lit teachers and talking about a wiki text for the class. Seedwiki, by the way, looks like a pretty powerful application. Each page has it’s own discussion list, you can get any changes via e-mail, update pages via e-mail, and password protect the pages. You get three wikis and up to 50 pages total for free…nice!
Oh, and by the way, I stumbled across this class wiki that is a great example of the potential of the tool and also a great resource for me in my Instructional Technology postition. I just love some of the ideas for collaborative recipe books and cross Atlantic video collaborations…
