Hello .....but I need help
I am a high school business and economics teacher. I have run my own moodle site for students for 2 years now. My students are very happy with online notes etc, but I have spectacularly failed to establish any web 2.0 tool (wiki/blog/forum/chat room) as a successful and regular part of my classes.
I think this is because these tools are designed to encourage collaboration: a skill that my final year (Y11/Y13) students are not assessed on by exam boards (
So my question is:
Does anyone have any clear advice (cookbook type solutions) on how to establish any web 2.0 tool as a regular, useful classroom activity for final year students?
Any advice, suggestions on where I can increase my knowledge would be great.
