Wiki – aholic: A lesson with my mentor – Jenny Luca!

Today I met with Jenny Luca to learn how to set up a wiki and work it properly. Why? The more I’ve seen and heard, the more I’ve realised what an excellent space this would be as a resource for our Literacy Professional Learning Team. It can house the minutes of our meetings, project information, links to other resources and will be accessible to all staff who join the wiki. This will save paper, e-mailing and provide the opportunity for others to add to the space. It’s set as private, but can be controlled by elected organisers.

I see great potential for this wiki as a genuine resource space for this team. I’m amazed at how far I’ve come on my Web 2.0 adventure. I’m learning quickly, have command of the vocabulary, am familliar with most tools and… I’m not afraid to take risks. That sounds like the learning behaviors we want young children to experience!  

We’ve been on holidays in Victoria, Australia and return to school next Monday. I’m looking forward to introducing the wiki to the literacy team and I’m hoping they’ll ‘give it a go’ and take this as an opportunity to learn something new.  Thank you Jenny for your fantastic mentoring!

  1. BTW Love the hotel. France is one of my favourite places (I was a French teacher in my previous life!). Haven’t been back since I came to live in Oz 1992 but live in hope 🙂

      My son and I explored Paris together. We were so lucky to be able to stay in the heart of Paris with my brother and his family. We were in the 16th quarter – very beautiful and central. My son and I visited Normandy to visit the D-Day landing sites -his Disney Land. He’s 15 and it will probably be the last time he’d go on a mum & son adventure… was very special. Cheers Nina

  2. Hi Nina. You are a great role model for your students. I’ve followed your journey via twitter & your blog and am amazed at the speed with which you’ve travelled up that steep learning curve! 🙂

      Thanks Pam,
      My year has been about personal and professional growth. I am so grateful to Jenny for sharing her knowledge and journey with me. I’ve gone from knowing ‘zip’ to having the confidence to experiment and share with others. I’ve learnt a whole new language and made connections with some amazing educators.
      Cheers Nina
