Everyday Words

Presenter: Jim Burke, Western Maine Learning

Everyday Words is the name of an adult education course that was piloted this past year in the Oxford Hills School District. Teacher, Joan Parker, and I used Google Sites and Google Docs as an easy-to-use online environment in which the course could have a focus for content, process, and publication of student work.

We'll look at the model and then create our own google sites.

We were looking for an online environment that was:

  • Teacher Controlled
  • Privacy Settings
  • Collaborative
  • Platform/Application Independent
  • User-Friendly
  • Versatile
  • Open and Ubiquitous
  • Place for content, resources, links, templates, file-sharing, discussion presentation/publication
  • Dependable (as long as internet connection is good) ;)
