Subjects offered in the Senior School
Science at PLC Armidale
The science department is using an online wiki space to share resources with students, display their work to one another and allow a more collaborative approach to research.
What we have done:
Students have enjoyed asking each other for helpful links, leaving positive comments on another's work sample, and participating in online quizzes and competitions. We have uploaded video, photo journals, links and podcasts. We have allowed students to generate their own pages, edit ours and comment on any page within the PLC Armidale Science Wiki.
What we have learned:
We have learned that controlling access is easier if multiple wiki's are used, rather than simply adding new pages for a different year level. We have had to speak to students about inappropriate language or "facebook" style comments on the wiki, encouraging them to respect the wiki as an extension of the classroom environment.
