Random Thoughts

Wetpaint vs Blackboard

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Major Mark Rea sent me this video and wiki to share. He’s a Major in the US Army and uses a wiki with cadets as part of his fitness program. Recently, he recorded his students thoughts on using a wiki instead of using BlackBoard (which I assume they have used before). Some good honest feedback and a fascinating wiki.

Oh yeah….and he has a podcast on iTunes too.

(Full Disclosure: I am the educational ambassador for Wetpaint Educational Wikis)

I started blogging in 2005 and found it such a powerful way to reflect and share my thinking about technology, this generation, and how we prepare students for their future not our past.

  5. As a student majoring in Education I am learning new and different ways to include technology in the classroom. Thank you for introducing me to Wetpaint. It could prove to be very helpful in my future classroom!
