(W4) Wikis, RSS and Social Networks

(W4) Wikis, RSS and Social Networks
Tuesday 5th June 07 ... 2pm to 5.30pm
In the last year Social (online) Networks have grown enormously in popularity with students around the world ... but these have not yet been adopted or used by many schools. In fact quite a number of schools around the world have blocked access on the school network to some of the social network websites like, 'myspace' and 'facebook'.
In this session we will look at what a social network site is and see some examples and discuss the pros and cons for a school community. We will also look at some ways of setting up your own social network for use with your class, school, or club .... or even outside work for your own family.
The session will also touch briefly on Wikis and RSS.

Hi it's Hwee Leng again from MOE. Increasingly we find that schools are using e-platforms like podcasting, blogs, discussion forum to conduct their assessments of students learning. Can I ask if there are certain principles which are common to all e-assessments to ensure that teachers carry out reliable and valid assessments using ICT?
