If you are interested in booking me (Wesley Fryer) for a presentation or workshop (either face-to-face or over video) please visit my Speaking page on www.speedofcreativity.org/speaking.


Update 25 August 2010:

In 2010 I am transitioning to the website wiki.wesfryer.com for my handout and presentation/workshop links. I'm not taking content here on PBworks offline, but I have added this "update header" to all my pages as well as adding direct links to more updated versions of these pages as I mirror them / create them on wiki.wesfryer.com. There are 146 pages here on teachdigital.pbworks.com. - You can browse these in page view in addition to using the four category links provided on the homepage. Note this wiki was previously mapped to "handouts.wesfryer.com" but that domain mapping is no longer available.


Stay updated on my latest posts by following me on Twitter, my blog ("Moving at the Speed of Creativity") and Facebook.

Get Wiki With It! Using Wikis for Collaboration and Learning


This workshop focuses on helping teachers and students utilize WIKIS to effectively collaborate and learn. A wiki is a website that permits designated individuals to jointly author and edit documents. The wiki software TRACKS each person's contributions, and facilitates easy comparisons between different document versions. Wikis can be used in safe, powerful ways to not only help learners work together but also showcase their work for a global audience.


An audio podcast recording of this session presented at the EncycloMedia 2008 conference is available.
