Announcing a new professional article by Ian McLean:
‘Research columns 1, 2009: Kindergarten weaves a wiki: the learners tell their stories’ in Scan 28(1) February 2009. (Forthcoming)
Early Stage 1 students at Penrith Public School used a wiki to create jointly-constructed fables, and share the final products (and the annotated learning journey) with their extended school community – and beyond. This research paper is introduced, and peer reviewed, by Dr Ross J Todd.
This article is scheduled for publication in the next issue of Scan, the NSW DET professional journal.
Congratulations on your article. I loved the idea of kindergarten students jointly constructing fables and have passed the idea along to the elementary teacher-librarians in our school division in rural Saskatchewan.
Many thanks Donna!
The first cohort of students still talk about their work on the wiki 12 months later!
