Peter Ruwoldt – Wikis for Learning and Collaboration

Peter's session is on the use of within in the classroom - a quick and dirty way of web authoring but a great way of enabling collaboration. Showed us Wikipedia, then Uncyclopedia, a wiki where you can spin a yarn. His presentation was authored on a wiki - Waraku Education Wikispace. It can only be edited by other Wikispaces members. The ads can be removed by a quick e-mail to the administrators and ask because if a wiki is for education, the ads can be removed. He then showed us a wiki he has used on the Grant High School Moodle site. He explained that Grant's stuff is all externally hosted on an outside server because of some many problems with the department's serve that blocked or was unfriendly to things like forum e-mails etc. Peter also showed how the history function works within a wiki and then he fielded some ideas from the audience on additional ideas for wiki use. the showed us examples from Bill Kerr (Africa game) and Leigh Blackall (TALO Swapmeet).
