Al's PBworks Admin Homework Page

Page history last edited by locotech 11 years, 1 month ago

http://iaspace.pbwiki.com/FrontPage - This space was created by a former PBworks mentor and features one of my favorite projects of all time!

  • What is the purpose of this workspace? What project will students complete on this workspace?

    The workspace provides a place for students to publish information they have collected.  This project may generate more interest by permitting the students to share the information in the form of a Facebook like profile for significant individuals and also countries.


  • How did they incorporate research and collaboration? (Please note the use of footnotes, an important PBworks plugin)

    Each teacher provided a rubric with expectations about the quality and variety of resources.  The students collected facts and also multimedia to describe their person, historical period, or country.  The students provide a works consulted at the end of their page.  [I did not see on the pages the footnotes plugin. Where am I missing it?]


  • Were the directions clear for students?

    Directions were clear for the students.  The teachers included examples and also rubrics to guide the student products.


  • How could you better organize this space? I would use folders for each teacher, perhaps with the name of the projects, like "decades," "presidents," etc. Then the student pages would be more easily found through navigation rather than scrolling the page to find where the teacher had linked the student poject pages.



  • Is this site collaborative or instructional?

    The site is instructional and collaborative.  One page had a nifty classtools venn diagram plugin for pre-writing a comparison. The wiki provides a chance for two schools to share information.  It looks like most pages are for individuals publishing.

  • How are students collaborating, or supporting each other's work?

    I did not see as much collaboration as opportunity to support through posting of comments.  After viewing a video, one school posted questions that were answered through comments onthe page.

  • How is this site structured so you can find what you're looking for?

    Much better use of folders on this site to organize pages.  This makes the site more usable and easily browsed.

(Hint: Please look in the PDS folder to see student work)
