Expanding Our Boundaries: Teacher Networking

Hi Everyone,

I’m looking forward to learning a lot on the weekend and networking with teachers from around Ontario!

On Friday before lunch I thought I’d share two ways that I’m using wikis in my work with teachers at Upper Grand DSB. The first is http://www.tech2learn.wikispaces.com and it’s for Special Education teachers in our board to share ideas, tips, lessons and links about assistive technology. It’s been a bit slow having members collaborate, but teachers are now using the site and sending me things to post, so I guess that’s step one.

The other site is http://www.ugdsbtechcoach.wikispaces.com and it’s a collaborative space for teachers who are participating in a job-embedded PD opportunity using the lesson study model. For most teachers this is their first crack at trying to use a wiki and we have different levels of collaboration going on, but we’ve had great feedback.

See you on Friday!
