O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference

Remixing Wikis for Elementary School Classrooms: Instiki, Wifi, and RendezvousTom Hoffman, Manager, SchoolTool Tim Lauer, Principal, Lewis Elementary School

Tom Hoffman and I will have the opportunity to present at the O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference 2005 in March in San Diego. I have had the opportunity to attend this conference twice in the past and have found it to be one of the best conference experiences I have ever had. You learn as much in the hallways as you do in the sessions.

Our session will highlight how some of the teachers at my school, Lewis Elementary, are using the Instiki wiki as a student writing environment, and how we utilize Rendezvous on OS X to make it very easy for students to find their work. In addition, since Instiki is installed on the teacher's laptop, we will also talk about how this has facilitated their adoption of the technology.
