Literacy class employs WordPress and Social Networking

I attended a presentation this week in an Education class where several Vassar students presented how WordPress sites could be to augment the educational experience.

Write!
http://pages.vassar.edu/elcunningham/
Blogs to encourage writing workshops for students.

Every Day Biology
http://pages.vassar.edu/niengelhardt/

Goals:

  • increase vocabulary
  • increase concept mastery and confidence in subject
  • increase parent child interaction
  • break out of teaching to the test
  • documentation

Challenges:

  • comments weren’t searchable – impeded the dictionary
  • evaluating sources – not covered, assumed


Education Through Discussion
Christopher Doscher
http://education-through-discussion.socialgo.com/
Facebook for education
supports video chat

Ethical Issues in Science
http://pages.vassar.edu/sajones/
Samantha Jones
Students are using internet and computers at home, when they come to school and work on non-networked computers it isn’t as relevant, nearly everyone is on facebook, teachers don’t know what facebook is.
Incorporating new technologies into the class day would connect home and school life
The blog can spark that connection.
The goal was to integrate science, technology, literacy and ethical issues.

Discussion:
How do you think wordpress could be used to improve the Vassar writing program or the experience at Vassar?
Great to make cross disciplinary connections and to archive work (eportfolios), open up the discussion past the “make a post about this topic” in Moodle or blackboard.

Epilogue:

It would have been great if the class had gotten this far halfway through the semester so they could put their theories to the test. It was time well spent and everyone in the class has a greater portfolio of technology tools to dip into should they become teachers.

    suppose you typed a catchier title? I am not saying
    your content isn’t good., however what if you added something that makes people desire more?
    I mean Literacy class employs WordPress and Social Networking | Vassar Talk Tech is a little boring.
    You ought to glance at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create news headlines to grab viewers interested.

    You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get people
    excited about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could
    make your posts a little livelier.
