If teachers catch wind of (let’s say) these wiki things and want to know a) “are they really a big deal?” and b) “how can I get my students started?” I’m assuming there’s some kind of website registered (let’s say http://wikis.intheclassroom.com/) where they can find:
- a video interview / case study of a telegenic teacher who set some ambitious goals and used wikis to achieve them.
- a step-by-step guide for deploying that technology in the classroom
- a list of people who have volunteered to serve as tech support representatives over e-mail.
I mean, that’s out there, right? Given the edublogosphere’s abundant hectoring and cajoling, I figure that has to be out there. If it isn’t, that begs the question, have you done enough to help the people who chose to do something?
