"I agree. I think the proper 'mix' for how to move forward will be with a mix of tools. I am excited to get to the stage were students can choose their tools for learning and teachers their tools for educating."

Moodle in Elementary School?

Hi, What are the advantages and disadvantages of Moodle? What grade levels, subjects work best with it? Our school uses it, but I'm so engaged in Web2.0 tools that I find Moodle very stifling and restricted? Am I wrong? Could someone tell me if I'm not being open-minded enough? Thank you so much!FaithSee More

About Me
I passionately teach k-4 computers in a small dayschool in Chicago. I love integrating Web2.0 in meaningful ways. I've used blogs, wikis, Voicethread, Animoto, Photopeach, and love to try out new applications.

Hi Faith,
Nice to hear from you. As you probably remember my wife Leah - Linda is from Chicago.
As for wikispaces. I am a total ignoramus about macs.
As for PC's with Windows make sure the Windows is Hebrew enabled. Follow instructions on one of the following sites:
http://www.jtsa.edu/Documents/pagedocs/instructtech/hebrew_howto.pdf
or
http://www.petri.co.il/install_hebrew_on_windows_xp.htm
Then when you edit the wikispace page, make sure you ar in Hebrew mode (Alt+Shift) and write.
In order to have the writing appear Righ to Left, you must add above and below the Hebrew writing the following tags on the wikipage.

[[rt]]

מה שבאמצע יוצמד לימין.
What is written between these tags will be right aligned.

[[rtl]]

If you need any more help write me at reuw@nevnet (dot) etzion (dot) k12 (dot) il
or skype me at reuven100.

Akiva & his family are fine B"H.
Kol Tuv,
Reuven

Hi Faith,

With your work in Technology Integration, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service. Here’s a public class recording you might find of interest.
