WORD PRESS AS AN EDUCATIONAL TOOL


Posted on July 21, 2014 | Leave a comment

Me gustara destacar el siguiente


enlace: http://etec.ctlt.ubc.ca/510wiki/WordPress_as_an_Educational_Tool,
creado por Deb Kim (2012), en el que encontramos informacin de
WordPress para usos educativos.
De los siguientes contenidos que aparecen:
1 Introduction; 2 History; 3 WordPress.com Vs. WordPress.org; 4 Specific
Uses in Education; 5 Benefits ( 5.1 Building a Community of
Practice. 5.2 Digital literacy ); 6 Concerns; 7 Examples in
Education (7.1 Primary School. 7.2 Secondary School. 7.3 Higher
Education. 7.4 Professional
Practice. 7.5 Other ); 8 Features ( 8.1 Plugins. 8.2 Themes. 8.3 Other
Significant Features. 8.4 References); 9 External Links; 10 Links to Other
Wiki Pages
y aunque todos son realmente interesantes, destacara los usos
especficos que menciona en educacin: Blogs, Communication, Class
Website, Share Lesson Plans, Gather Information, Integrate
Multimedia, Online
Discussions, Share
Material, ePortfolio,
o
Learning Management System; los ejemplos en educacin en los que
nos muestra blogs de clase que han recibido EduBlog award, con lo que
podemos hablar de blogs realmente importantes y de excelencia; y las
referencias o enlaces externos a los que podemos acceder directamente,
enlaces a diferentes libros, artculos e investigaciones.
Los artculos acadmicos nos describen contextos de aprendizaje que son
muy valiosos para adentrarnos en el mundo de los blogs. Pero muchas
veces, el ver ejemplos reales de proyectos ya realizados ofrece ms
claridad e ideas al poder observar el resultado final. Ver todo el proyecto
concluido nos puede esclarecer conceptos o ideas que no nos pudieran
haber quedado muy claras en un artculo de investigacin.

Sobre todo el proyecto de Film English de secundaria (Kieran Donaghys


English Media Studies) me ha parecido realmente atractivo e interesante,
porque es de los pocos que he visto basados en este nivel del alumnado y
no referidos a niveles ms avanzados, o universitarios. La organizacin,
diseo e incluso el tema me parecen excelentes. Merece la pena hacer
una visita al mismo. Todos los que tengis alumnos de secundaria, sobre
todo, no dejis de entrar en este blog.

USOS DE WORDPRESS EN EDUCACIN.


Posted on March 18, 2014 | Leave a comment

Me gustara compartir en primer lugar, un artculo que aparece en el blog


de Fernando
Cruz
Bello (http://fcruzbello.es/2012/06/wordpress-enentornos-educativos.html ) acerca de cmo usar WordPress en entornos
educativos. Detalla posibles usos y adems tiene vdeos con explicaciones
que no se suelen encontrar en otras partes. Aqu incluyo un enlace de
uno; pero tiene varios tutoriales que merece la pena ver, porque son
cortos, pero muy detallados.
Qu es un CMS?
Las propuestas que indica para el uso de WordPress en educacin son las
siguientes (http://ayudawp.com/usos-de-wordpress-en-educacion/):

Creacin de pginas web de grupo (grupos de investigacin,


departamentos, centros etc.) de una manera cmoda y sencilla

Nos permite crear una identidad digital. Puede que no utilicemos


internet y que por ello creamos que estamos lejos de aparecer en los
resultados de Google, pero eso no es cierto. Tener un blog o un sitio
web en el que podamos ir creando informacin controlada sobre
nosotros, ayuda a crearnos una identidad digital.

Interaccin en redes sociales: Tener un sitio web nos permite


interaccionar en las redes sociales. Podemos convertirlo en un
repositorio de nuestra interaccin en las redes o bien mediante
botones permitir a nuestro visitantes que difundan los contenidos
que hemos creado.
Creacin de contenidos pblicos o privados: Las Contenidos de
nuestro sitio web pueden publicarse con contrasea, para que slo lo
vean aquellos que tengan esa contrasea
Trabajo en grupo: Como permite que varias personas a la vez
publiquen contenidos, podemos hacer que nuestro alumnos
publiquen sus trabajos en un blog de grupo en el que nosotros como
profesores, seramos los administradores del mismo.
Concentrador de medios: En internet hay muchos contenidos
multimedia que podemos incrustar en nuestro sitio web. WordPress
es una herramienta fantstica para recoger aquellos contenidos que
nos parezcan interesantes para nuestras clases.
Foro: Tambin conocido como foro de mensajes, foro de opinin o
foro de discusin, es una aplicacin web que da soporte a
discusiones u opiniones en lnea. En WordPress tenemos distintas
opciones de creacin de foros con la ventaja de poder usar los
usuario del propio wordpress, como usuarios del Foro. El plugin ms
conocido que nos permite hacer esto es bbPress.
Faq: El trmino preguntas frecuentes o preguntas ms frecuentes
(FAQ, acrnimo del ingls Frequently Asked Questions) se refiere a
una lista de preguntas y respuestas que surgen frecuentemente
dentro de un determinado contexto y para un tema en particular.
Podemos crear unas Faq de una asignatura como una simple
pgina de WordPress que vamos actualizando a medida que van
surgiendo las preguntas y las respuestas. Las preguntas pueden
sugerirlas los alumnos como comentarios a la pgina creada a tal fin.
Sistemas de votaciones por parte de los alumnos: WP-answer es un
plugin que permite la votacin de comentarios al estilo de
meneame , digg o Yahoo answer para votar as las mejores
contribuciones. por parte de los alumnos
Lifestream de la clase: El concepto de Lifestream sera lago as
como seguir el rastro de nuestra actividad en la red desde un nico
lugar. Cada vez que subimos un vdeo a youtube, fotos a flickr,
creamos un tuit en twitter, hacemos un comentario en Facebook, o
creamos un favorito en Delicious, esa actividad es recogida en un
nico lugar. Eso es un lifestream.
Existe un plugin dentro de WordPress que nos permite llevar a cabo
esa tarea deuna manera automtica, su nombre es Lifestream
(lgicamente). El resultado sera algo parecido a esto: enlace.
Podemos crear un usuario especifico para una clase o una
asignatura y hacer el seguimiento de la actividad web de ese usuario
desde el plugin de wordpress.
Los sitios web desde los que podemos hacer ese seguimiento
seran:


Youtube: sitio de vdeos

Vimeo: videos de alta definicin

Twitter: servicio de microblogging

Facebook: red social

Flickr: servicio de fotografas

Picassa: servicio de fotografas

Slideshare: Servicio de publicacin de presentaciones

Delicious: Marcadores sociales (explicacin aqu)
