I'm a first semester PhD student in Ed. Psych and I want to use Moodle for a class project. I just downloaded the software for the first time last week and have only started playing with it.
I need to provide a Math lesson using pre-existing online math content to two 8th grade classes. I would like to conduct a 5 day training session as follows:
- Day 1: Walk-through of logging in and performing Moodle activities
- Day 2: Divide the class into groups of 2 or 3 and have them perform the pre-existing online activity (math game). Instructions and Link from within Moodle.
- Day3: Have each group create a Wiki using a provided template explaining the how to win the game (ie. explain the math strategies necessary to win).
- Day4: Have groups review other groups Wiki's, posting comments about what was helpful and what could be added.
- Day5: Have the originating group, evaluate feedback, update Wiki, and submit to teacher as final.
My question is (and it is rather open) is how to accomplish this using Moodle? My thinking is to create a single lesson such that each topic contains the content for each possible Math game. Each group can select their topic of interest. It doesn't matter if they overlap - the Wiki activity will be separated by groups.
If I take this approach, how do I make the Wiki's more public on Day 4? Would each group have to export their wiki as an html doc and submit it back to a folder? The downside of doing this is that the resulting html file is no longer a wiki.
If they do resubmit their wiki as an html file, I could create a forum for them to discuss it rather than having them update it directly.
I would appreciate comments from more experienced Moodlers. Like most students, I am behind and need to get this done rather quickly.
