Using Online Sticky Noticeboards

Nik Peachey

For the last few days I've been playing with WallWisher a handy tool for creating online noticeboards that you can add sticky notes to. You can see a wall that I created here with some notes about Web 2.0 Tools for EFL ESL Teachers. It's very easy to create your own noticeboard, just click where it says 'Build a Wall' and you'll see a new wall with some options on it that you need to complete.

I read the following quote in the April edition of the T.H.E. Journal.

It''s a whole different kind of literacy; it''s a whole different kind of writing; it''s a whole different kind of reading.

The Electric Educator

In December I was selected as one of a group of educators to create content for iTunesU K-12. I am in the process of creating 25 resources focused on high school biology labs that will be available for download free on iTunes. Time to work on this project has come in bits and pieces in between my teaching responsibilities and quest for my elusive masters degree from Liberty University. I''m on spring break now, and managed to edit and post four episodes over the weekend.
