Moodle Item of the Week
Plenty to blog about this month! Firstly a big congratulations to those who brought the moodle moot to us! A fantastic opportunity to meet other moodlers for us in Ireland. I was very excited to meet Mary Cooch having corresponded with her over 2 continents in the last 10 years! I’d also like to bring your attention to avery exciting series brought by Mark Glynn through http://www.linireland.com/events/moodle-webinars.html- a great range of tutorials/ideas on how to use moodle in your classroom. I helped with one of them and it got me thinking about using the comment feature in both the glossary and database modules as an AFL (assessment for Learning)tool. One idea I had was to use the 2 stars and a wish as a scaffold for student to guide them in making a comment. The basics of this is that they come up with 2 good things and 1 improvement to make on the entry they are commenting on.
