Application of PB Works in the Classroom

 

 

Technology is part of our students’ lives outside the classroom and should be part of their experience within the classroom. However, integrating technology into the curriculum can be difficult without resources to help you balance content with technology. The Application of PB Works in the Classroom mini course will help teachers bridge this gap between should do and can do. Course participants will be guided through the creation of a wiki space on PB Works and will receive resources from multiple content areas in the integration of this technology as a complement to the curriculum. Participants will learn how wiki spaces can be used to capitalize on classroom diversity in a technology based cooperative learning environment.


Course Objectives

 

Participants will reflect on wiki page integration into their curriculum meeting the following objectives:

  • understand benefit of technology integration in 21st century education
  • identify the benefit of wiki pages in collaborative learning
  • classify the types of learners that will benefit from wiki collaboration 
  • reflect on success of meeting content objectives in wiki examples
  • reflect on own content that could utilize a wiki

 

Participants will create a PB Works wiki page meeting the following objectives:

  • create a wiki with a front page and one additional page containing images and links
  • create log-in names and passwords for 5 students to edit the wiki
