Mercy Vocational High SchoolWiki and Service Learning


We used the wiki and Ustream to keep in touch with our Mercy community while a team of students and faculty traveled to Biloxi, MS to help with the rebuilding effort. This service learning trip, named Operation Katrina, was our fourth trip to the bay area. Our project and rap won the first True Hero award. The use of the social networking helped us win this award.

We will share our lessons learned with using these tools. We will also discuss our plans for this year as we look to use Ustream and the wiki to showcase our students shop skills.
