Based a federally funded project on implementation of 1:1 computing in 28 schools, Digital Wish designed a technology curriculum to comprehensively cover the NETS standards. See the complete series here.

In the Classroom Collaboration and Debate Unit, students will become editors of their own classroom wiki or other collaborative website. The right wiki program will allow students to post questions, pictures for analysis, or documents for group editing. They will also be able to see their classmates’ work and give feedback digitally, creating a classroom environment that gives all students a voice and nourishes and fosters fresh ideas. Moreover, it is an excellent opportunity to practice good digital citizenship. Step by step, students can be trained not only on how to use the technology, but also how to use it appropriately in a collaborative setting.

Educators have always led by example, teaching young people much more than the state and federal standards, core curriculum, and grade-level projects. We teach them conflict resolution, appropriate behavior, social interaction, and, in many cases, right from wrong. The ability to use a digital tool to comment, respond, and post messages in a polite, respectful, and constructive manner is difficult for many students and adults.

In a secure and controlled environment, students will practice the giving and receiving of feedback and engage with others via a digital platform. The Internet itself is a collaborative project, and anytime we use the Internet we are participating in a global online community. The skills students take away from this unit will only become more important as Internet usage increases.

This Unit contains an instructor preparation checklist and four important lessons:
  1. lntro to PBWorks
