Sometimes we look at what someone is doing with Wikispaces Private Label, and it really makes us go, “Wow!” Actually, that happens a lot. But sometimes we manage to wrangle a chat with the people who built the site and wrestle their secrets from them. And when that happens, we put up a new case study.
In Oakland County, Michigan, the Birmingham Public School district is challenging old-fashioned notions of pedagogy and really looking forward to 21st-century ways of teaching, and thinking about teaching. They’re using their Private Label site as a platform to bring tools and ideas together, and to give teachers, students, and even parents a place to collaborate and get involved.
A well-structured site was just the beginning. Since 2008, the teachers and students of the Birmingham Public School district have been learning from each other what makes a successful educational site. And now you can learn from them, too.
