Using a wiki for ICT

This term we have been using a wiki in our ICT classes. We created a WebQuest on wikispaces.com which included lots of ICT activities related to our Inquiry topic, Healthy Habits, Healthy You. The activities included using a Lotus Thinking Chart to organise our ideas, creating a word wall using Tagxedo, making a healthy menu using Excel (and graphing the sugar content of our meals) and making a flyer promoting healthy habits in Publisher.

One of the advantages of our WebQuest is that students could work at their own pace. Some students completed activities quickly while others needed more time to see things through. Another thing that worked with our WebQuest was that students could access all their activities without help. All they needed was a username and password and they could work independently.

We enjoyed the WebQuest so much we are going to do it again in Term 4. I would love to hear what you think about your ICT classes this term. What did you like? What would you like to change next time?
