Jasmine is an Assistant Headteacher at a grammar school in the North West of England. Her main remits are new technologies, data, assessments and reporting and curriculum development. Jasmine is passionate about the use of technology in education as well as gadgets, gizmos and any kind of teaching and learning strategy that works and makes learning fun for students. How people learn and how to engage people in learning is a life long fascination and a journey which she is thoroughly enjoying exploring.
I thought I would revisit Wikispaces with my Year 9 class this week. We have internal examinations next week so it was a revision lesson on Unit 1 AQA GCSE Physics. I thought, wouldn’t it be good to set up a wiki of revision notes in an hour? I set up a page for each section of the specification, which corresponded to a double page spread in their text book. I made the wiki publically editable to save them having to join up and be approved.
Each student was allocated a section of the text book on which to make summary notes, add images and weblinks to further resources, all of which I explained how to do (5 minutes).
