Jennifer Barnett Presents on Her Classroom and School Wikis

Join us for our May Education Webinar on May 5th at 3:30 pm PST. Our education webinar series is designed to help teachers learn how to begin a wiki in their classroom, take advantage of features on Wikispaces, and meet other educators doing interesting things with wikis.

We are joined this month by Jennifer Barnett, an English and history teacher at Fayetteville High School in Alabama. Jennifer is a long-time Wikispaces member and her wiki has become an integral part of her classroom. She uses it to post assignments, foster collaborative group projects, encourage peer-review, and more. Come learn from Jennifer’s example and get more out of your classroom wiki.

Update: We had a wonderful webinar with Jennifer yesterday. You can catch a recording of the event here.

    Thank you Sarah & Jennifer – I have only been using wikispaces for a couple of months – I am the Library Media Director for a small school district in NH. Today’s webinar was not only informative, but very enjoyable! Jennifer’s wiki is inspirational – I’m looking forward to the webinar on Thursday!

    I enjoyed sharing with everyone last night. It was a pleasure to connect with other teachers working to integrate technology with their curriculum. Don’t hesitate to be in touch with me by email – jbarnett@tcboe.org or on skype. I’d love to see what you are doing with your classes – please share! Thanks again!

    I am so disappointed that I missed your webinar on using wikispaces in the classroom. I am new to classroom technology and web 2.0 but am finding it fascinating! The more I investigate and learn, the more I realize that it truly is a completly different view of the world and information. When I was working on my credential, I took an introductory course in curriculum, and one of the topics was the curriculum of the future…”infomatics”. Not the storage or researching of information, but the accessing, sharing, and managing information. At the time, I thought of the vast amount of information stored on my computer and available to me through a web supported class. My gosh, I never thought of the potential and where it would lead. As I have been initiated into blogging and wikis just this past week, I have realized how quickly it can become overwhelming and powerful. Overwhelming in that it so difficult to manage without a thorough understanding of the tools to assist with this technology, and powerful because of the “reach” of the information and the creative potential. I stumbled onto blogs with educators in Australia, U.K., Canada, and eventually in non-English speaking countries with the blogs translated into English! I look forward to more of these opportunities to learn (webinars, etc.) as the world truly becomes my classroom.
