This session was an informal sharing of favourite websites from amongst the participants.
- Participants were asked to write their favourite websites on the whiteboard.
- One at a time, the participants shared applications with us and ‘stepped’ us through their favourite sites.
Our group tonight was mainly from Australia but we did have representation from Romania and China.
The favourite websites included
- wallwisher with one of one of Carole McCuloch’s samples http://wallwisher.com/wall/mentoringmondays
- Voicethread – free educational version
- voki – talking avatars
- glogster – sample student glog
- http://gamesined.wikispaces.com – games wiki being developed by Adrian Camm
- Bubbl.us – mindmapping
- Google sites – online presentation tool
This session worked well with participants willing to take risks and share their internet sites using application sharing, despite it being the first time many had done so. For some, it was their first time in elluminate, so thanks everyone!
