A week into my mid year break and a week away from the SFD sessions I will be conducting for Primary Teachers at my high school.

We will be looking at the Technology syllabus very briefly, the new QCARF essential learnings, allignment and reporting even more briefly and the we will spend most of our time exploring the web 2.0 possibilities for our classroom practices.

I am very excited about opening the eyes of colleagues to the wonders of web 2.0 stuff. I have been exploring many sites… Continue

The 6th graders at Chichester Central School in Chichester, New Hampshire (USA), would like to invite you to participate in our blog.  We have created a blog, which we hope will allow us to explore varying diets from around the world.  Our goal is to understand what other country’s diets consist of and what they consider to be healthy.  Here in New Hampshire, we eat a lot of seafood and lobsters as we are so close to the Atlantic Ocean.  We also grow and eat fresh corn, apples, strawberries, blueberries and even pumpkins.  If you are interested, please visit our blog at and respond to the “World Diets” page.  If you respond, it would be helpful if you could include which country or area of the world you are responding from.  If you are not interested, it would be much appreciated if you could pass this along to a friend or colleague that may be. 

We here in New Hampshire look forward to your response.  Thanks

-Chris Gagnon – 6th grade teacher

Hi Garry, Interested in your use of Pageflakes for the ICT Pacesetters and exploration of Web2.0 tools in the classroom. Do you have issues with filtering/blocking of many of the sites in your school?

Hi Garry, thanks for the friend request - it's a pleasure to accept it. Regarding social networks in the classroom, I'm having a go at engaging my class of apprentices in Ning.

thank you Garry for messaging me. I just wanted to join the web 2.0 group as I just love web 2.0 even though I have only just started with it. Have used,, wikkis and blogs. However, I am still trying to learn my way around so I dont know if I clicked on the wrong comment box or not. My comment does remain on that discussion list so I guess that worked at least. Thanks for remembering me.

The possibilities a numerous Gerald.
Let's consider one example for a mathematics class. If groups of four to six students each had a wiki to contribute the thoughts and processes required to solve a problem, you not only get the students learning to collaborate online ( a very important skill now and for the future) but you also have a record of individual contributions for assessment. All to often it is difficult to ensure the assignment work you are getting belongs to the student. A wiki provides a means of seeing the student input develop over the course of the project and you are not worrying about 1st drafts etc.
You would need to choose the challenge carefully so that all have an opportunity to contribute, but certainly can be done.

No problem with using them myself.
My questions is how do you use them with students?
I have seen the very good youtube video which explains the mechanics but not the pedagogy - if you get my drift!

Hi, Garry. Yes, I teach Year 9 Maths here in Adelaide. However, my approach is a little unusual in that I use a self-paced method.
Would be interested in you opening my eyes to the possibilities of Web 2.0 I have dabbled a little with developing a wiki for a senior biology class I teach but the students were more conservative in their approach than some of my fellow teachers!

Hi Garry,
Yes, I am helping to organise PD for teaching staff in the VET sector and am trying to get my head around all of the fantastic stuff thats out there. I see you are an SL member, how is that working for you?
