Overview

 

During this session, use Moodle, the free and open source course management system, to learn how to apply Moodle's collaborative tools in a practical school environment.

 

  • Learn how Moodle's internal messenger can be used to encourage participation, as well as teach important lessons about what is appropriate to write on the web.
  • Participate in a forum discussion about Web 2.0, and see how I use forums in my class to foster debate and critical thinking (plus, see how I grade them!).
  • Create a wiki about the Michigan Merit Curriculum to demonstrate the impact that such editing power can have on your students.
  • Add technology terms to our course glossary - providing not only a collaborative assignment, but a full linkable resource when you're done!
  • Write a haiku about technology based on a rubric that I have created. Then, use that rubric to workshop other haiku!
  • If time permits, take a short Moodle quiz over the material covered in this session.

 

About the Presenter

 

I have been using Moodle for as long as I have been teaching. I currently manage over 1000 students on my school's Moodle installation. Seeing the potential in the social aspect of the Internet, I believe that every school should include Moodle as the backbone of their online learning environment. I have spent a lot of time and energy making this a reality in my school. I am here to help make it a reality in yours.

 

Resources

 

 

For this online experience, we will be using my school's Moodle at http://www.nilesschools.org/vikingnet. If this server gives us trouble (which it shouldn't, but to be safe!), the backup plan is to use OAISD's Moodle at http://moodle.oaisd.org. The login that you receive at the door will work on both installations.
