In many discussions with teachers about G21 projects, we came up with ways for students to publish online. For others, it was a method for turning in documents as assignments.
Recently, I worked with a group at the specialty education center and they had to turn in podcast episodes to their teacher. We created a Moodle course for this purpose, and the 5th graders logged-on and uploaded their lyrics and math songs. But for other purposes, you may want a public space where students can communicate.
I’ve set up a public wiki area for use by Goochland educators and students. If you think you’d like to use it, contact me. It uses MediaWiki, the same framework used for the famous Wikipedia.
