I just wanted to let you know that Rob Maguire showed me how to make up a class Wiki page and set it to private so that the students of that class can access it only and upload their current work to their own page.
I also have Title pages on these Wiki’s where I have placed all the work that I do in class so if the students lose or misplace their worksheets then they can download and print. It also means that the students can communicate with myself and each other and I can monitor their progress.
I have shown this to all 6 classes and I wanted you to know that the students are very excited and rapped that they have access to their work, worksheets and can even contact me if need be.
I had one student last night who wanted to finish her work, could not access the Wiki, emailed me and in 3 minutes, I had her work to her and she emailed me this morning thanking me that she had finished her work. I was very surprised by the way the students received the Wikis, they were all very excited.
This process is brilliant and is working like a charm, I just wanted you to know.
