Australian Elearning Session

Today, at 12 noon Australian Eastern time (2am UTC/GMT, 7pm U.S. Pacfic), I’ll be running an online tutorial entitled Wikis in the Classroom for the Australian Networks Community Forum as part of their “Cool Resources for E-learning” month.

The session will aim to help teachers understand what wikis are, how to use them, and how they be valuable in the classroom.

We will cover:

  • What is a wiki? What’s the difference between a wiki and a blog?
  • How do I get a wiki? What are my options?
  • Are wikis secure? How do I manage my students’ experience?
  • How should I use wikis in my classroom? What are some good examples of wikis in classrooms?
  • OK, so how do I use Wikispaces? A step by step tutorial.

If you’d like to join us, you can drop by. Hope to see you there.
When prompted, just enter your own name.

Update: The session has been postponed due to technical difficulties. We’ll be rescheduling and will post a new time soon.

Update: The session has been rescheduled for 2 Nov at 4pm U.S. PST (3 Nov 10am Australian Eastern). Check the new blog post for further detail.

    Hi Adam,

    I was online yesterday morning in anticipation of the Australian Elearning Elluminate Session. What a shame that the audio wouldn’t happen. Apparently you and Kerry certainly gave it your best :).

    I was really looking forward to joining in the chat as I am a keen Wikispace for Teachers advocate. In fact I am off to a conference next Monday 24th Sept and Tuesday where I will be presenting a couple of sessions. One of these is a general one on blogs, wikis, podcasts and a couple of other Web 2.0 things. The other session is on wikis in general and Wikispaces For Teachers in particular. I aim to bump up the Wikis for K-12 campaign by at least 27 :) as the participants will all join up during that session.

    I have a couple of wiki examples that I will be showcasing including two from my class of 3-4’s but would love more. My question is whether you can identify for me, (so that I can showcase them), other wikispaces amongst the 10,000 plus education based wikis that are innovative and of potential interest to other teachers. FYI, my grades wikispaces can be found in the blogroll of our grade blog at

    BTW my email is jpearce at

    Thanks for the note and sorry about the problem with the session. We’ll be rescheduling so I hope to speak to you then.

    Great news about your conferences. Good luck with them.

    We are starting a resource that is designed to be the central repository for teacher wikis. It will have examples and best practices and such. We’re just geting started but take a look at
