Week #7 Thing #17

I enjoyed playing in the sandbox on the Classroom Learning 2.0 Wiki!  At first I wasn't sure what to do.  I checked out the different pages, looked at the m+m avatars - Very Cute, looked at some pages that didn't have anything on them and then posted my Webquest.  As I'm sitting here at 11:30 p.m. watching the Phillies, or I should say listening to the Phillies while I am working, I thought, I'm supposed to be playing in the sandbox, and here I am not even watching the playoffs.  So, I had an idea to ask everybody who they are cheering for.  I am hoping people will edit the wiki and play along.  I also posted a poll on this blog to see who everyone is cheering for.

I definitely see the benefits of wikis.  They are great for any type of collaboration.  I like looking at examples of wikis to get ideas for the classroom.  I also like wikis for providing help for teachers!  I think it's great when an educator comes up with a good idea and is willing to share it!  I like the idea of doing a virtual book club and having different pages of the wiki set up for characters and plot discussions!  I think the possibilities are endless.

This week my class was to create a WebQuest.  You can check them all out in the Classroom Learning 2.0 Sandbox
