Connecting and Collaborating with online spaces

Published by:

Moving into a 1-1 environment or even just trying to create an anywhere, anytime experience for the students can be difficult.  Understanding the different online spaces and how they can work, ways to use multiple forms for different purposes and how to create individual spaces is an important part of the transition to a connected world.

Some fabulous ways to connect online are:
Wikis:
I use wikispaces.  I find it the most reliable and most customisable of the free wiki creators.  Wikispaces has free educational tools for use by teachers.
Blogs:
Edublogs is my tool of choice.  Simple, easy and well structured.
Collaborative online spaces:
Edmodo:  Free and easy to set up classes, create tests, do a poll, and share docuemnts.  iPad friendly.
Schoolology:  Similar to Edmodo, new to the marketplace.
Online document creation:
Sync.in:  Allows real time collaboration for a single document for multiple users.
