I have been teaching languages and IT for 35 years and have been retired now for one year. I have always worked with the latest media integrated in my lessons because I wanted my students to learn in an authentic setting. I also worked – and still do- as a teacher trainer for new media and giving presentations at conferences on the didactical possibilities of Moodle and Mahara.
Presentation Title/Description: Moodle and Mahara – from the virtual classroom to the personal ePortfolio
Moodle as a Learning Management System is a perfect tool for creating a virtual classroom where students can find information, cooperate, collaborate, communicate, write tests etc whereas Mahara provides a personal learning space for each single student where he/she can showcase the learning, skills and progress and reflect on the learning process.
I will show in my presentation how this works in a school setting and will show some of the outcomes of working with “”Mahoodle”” in a class.
This model can be adapted to all school levels.
