The Technology Department has been hard at work providing Blended Learning opportunities for teachers and students. One of the powerful tools that we have is Mahara. In order to help teachers, tutorials have been created to assist in the use of Mahara. Please see below for feedback from a Bryant teacher (Joann Harper) on her use within class.
Thanks for your help last week. ‘Just wanted to give you some feedback on the web technology, as you asked.
Your timing was just right for I was looking for a way to publish our 6 + 1 writing strategies for our seventh grade capstone projects. For some students, this was a great place to add the “ +1” so students could publish their work. A few wrote journal entries and others created PowerPoint presentations. Some of my “Early Adaptors” jumped right into the e-Portfolio writing tool—The hardest thing we’ve found so far is how to correctly pronounce “Mahara!” The tutorials are just right—short, sweet and very easy to understand.
