Is it a good site?

If you are on Twitter or other live feed you get a lot of information and recommendations if you participate in the right channels. As a teacher this the the best thing for me about Twitter. It keeps me totally up to date with what is going on and what I want to know. I contribute, others contribute and suddenly you have a whole batch of usable knowledge at your fingertips with little effort on your part. Every so often I come across a site and I am thinking – Looks good, I could use that….not sure. Hm, really not sure. So what do you do when you are an educator and you are not certain whether a site will actually promote e-learning or be a big flop? Online learning has to work or you get a massive drag in the classroom which you have to work hard to repair. Wallwisher is one of these sites. If it looks really good. It looks like the sort of thing which could take off like a rocket if all the students have a computer/laptop. If it is a good site, it’s one I am thinking I could use to set a fun homework exercise to practise their French. I’m not sure. So when I am not sure, this is what I do:

1. Bookmark the site and watch it over a couple of weeks to see what happens.
2. Go to the forum or blog for the site and read the updates and information which are posted.
3. Put the site up on the whiteboard and ask a trusted class what they think and what they can see as negatives and positives.
4. Sometimes I join the site and participate to get a feel for it but I am tiring of so many logins, registrations and passwords. Sick of it.
5. Blog or tweet about it to see what comes back.
