Blog Post #11
I was very surprised at the level to which these first grade students were able to use the computers in the classroom. I think that the way they used wikispaces is something I could incoorporate into my classroom. I like the way they pose a question and then they have other people share their ideas with them. I think that a common problem in classrooms is that the only ideas available are those IN the classroom. This brings in ideas from outsiders, possibly people all over the world. One problem I could see occuring from the use of wikispaces in this way, especially in the secondary setting, which is where I will be teaching,would be other studetns making inappropriate comments as their answer to the question. Students at this age think that this is very humorous. I am sure there is a way where comments have to be approved before they are published to the class wikispace.
