On Monday I wrote about Theresa Heary-Selah. Today, I’d like to focus a little more on WiZiQ, a possible homeschooling resource, and the site where you can find some of her blogs
WiZiQ is a platform for online teaching and learning. It is a virtual space where people can learn together from their own homes. Teachers can easily use the WiZiQ platform to explore ideas or share curriculum with other students. The classroom is equipped with whiteboards, an audio visual projector, a library of unimaginable proportions, the ability for students to speak and write with each other and the teacher, and intuitive feedback methods for students. Classes can happen at a certain day and time with live communication so that students are a part of a learning community, despite the physical distance.
WiZiQ has hired Theresa Heary-Selah to blog and write about homeschoolers and technology. Theresa, who has never liked technology, is creating an online homeschool cooperative, and writing about the experience. She is learning the technology, making contacts, and working with the WiZiQ team to create great learning experiences for her students. Here are some blog posts that introduce some of the interesting aspects of WiZiQ — http://blog.wiziq.com/creating-and-uploading-content-for-a-newbie/, and http://blog.wiziq.com/creating-a-course/.
Fun–and fun learning is forever learning!
