Congratulations! Upon completion of this course you are able to create and design with Open Source Software (OSS) tools, your own wiki website that may be used for communicating and collaborating with colleagues, students, and parents from your classroom. The students may use these web tools and others to connect to information and resources from around the globe to enhance their learning experiences and sharpening their skills for critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity. The use of technology will advance the diversity of student learning. Adding and embedding multimedia (audio, video, hyperlinks) and blogs, is a way to create and design your own authentic content to your wiki that provides rich information and resources that will engage all types of learners.
Please continue to practice what you have learned in this course, and also join a blog, attend an online webinars/conferences to learn what other teachers are doing with technology integration in their classrooms. Listed in the Right Navigation Bar are Blogs and Communities of Practice for integrating technology in the classroom.
There are many more resources out on the Internet, I encourage you to find one or two in your own subject matter to join as well.
