Create a blog, wiki, or group
Blogs, wikis, and groups can be good ways to integrate technology into your classroom and develop student knowledge and interaction
Blogs: A class blog can be used to stimulate discussion on a topic, or be used to complete short essays. Or, students can be asked to create their own individual blogs,and share them with the class (i.e., students can follow each other's blogs). Blogger is an example of a blog creation site.
Wikis: A wiki is a website that allows many different people to edit it. (Wikipedia is a wiki.) "Wiki" is a Hawaiian word meaning "quick." Students can work together to create a wiki on a topic they are studying. They collaborate in order to make it a success. Wikispaces is an example of a wiki creation site.
Online Groups: You might also consider creating a Facebook Group, or other online group, for your class.
