How exciting it is to see our third grade students using a Wiki! The students from the challenge program, Ms. Restivo, Ms. Gentile, and Mr.Pitz’s classes used internet tools to collaborate on a variety of topics, ultimately creating a guide to Morse School for incoming second graders. Although these students could not work on the project at the same time period or on the same days, they were able to use various Web 2.0 tools to accomplish their goals.
These students are really the first in the district to take advantage of these tools, and they should be commended, as should their teachers. This was a large project that was efficiently managed and distributed using these new tools. John Calvert’s innovative thinking and willingness to goal the extra mile contributed to the success as well.
