Learning2gether Episode 264
On Sunday Mar 08 at 1400 GMT Learning2gether held a discussion hosted by Elizabeth Anne on blended learning in her conservative higher ed environment in Grenoble, France. She focused largely on Pbworks Wiki <http://pbworks.com> and how she uses it to post student writing and then correct it so that the posts have correct English, but the students can see from wiki history what changes were made. She then uses screen shots from the marked-up histories to show the class what errors were made in here grammar and writing lessons.

What was it about?
The establishment is notoriously opposed to change. For the past 8 years my 3rd and 4th year science students have all had to create their own pbworks wikis for their English class (to fulfill the requirements of their mark), while each class shares a wiki on which they collaborate http://makeyourown.pbworks.com/. I’d love to share some of the things I’ve learnt from this experience while learning how you manage to reconcile blended learning with institutional requirements.
The Hangout on Air was full. The ten participants were, besides Vance Stevens
Benjamin Stewart, Halima Ozimozov, Maria Colussa, Nina Liakos, Maha Abdulmoneim, Teresa Almeida d’Eca, Robert Wachman, Kara Naber, Claire Siskin (plus there was a listener in the stream)
