  • Transcript of "Using Wikis In The Classroom"

    1. 1. Using Wikis in the Classroom<br />Anna-Mieke Mulholland<br />Teacher Librarian<br />Emmanuel College<br />
    2. 2. Teacher Librarians ...The leaders in the field... <br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLlGopyXT_g<br />
    3. 3. Plan ...<br />Why use wikis?<br />Is it hard???? <br />How to have a stress-free wiki-life<br />Free and private wikis online<br />
    4. 4. Why Use Wikis with Staff? <br />It’s a great collective memory<br />It’s a great dumping ground for ideas trawled from conversations<br />Great way to store practical policies<br />Problem solving with departmental issues<br />Work with other teachers to create collaborative lesson plans (link to a reflective blog??)<br />
    5. 5.
    6. 6. Using Wikis with Students<br />Great place to store resources eg, annotated bibliographies, websites, writing samples <br />Maintain a journal of group work<br />Create a glossary of terms as students work through a unit<br />Peer review (link to a blog?)<br />Organise a group!<br />
    7. 7.
    8. 8. Thoughts on keeping it stress-free...<br />First time round, they need lots of support to remind them why and how.<br />Don’t feel it has to be beautiful. It’s scrap paper.<br />Get the kids to develop organisational tools, eg, colour coding their work.<br />Check it.<br />Email them or add to their wiki.<br />
    9. 9. ... Stress free wikis.. <br />Teach the students first, let them play on one for the whole class, then give them the real thing. They need to get the “plays” out of their systems.<br />Actively teach them to use attachments, add hyperlinks, create new pages if necessary.<br />Remember, you know more than them.<br />
    10. 10. Wiki-spaces – free and private<br />http://www.wikispaces.com/site/for/teachers You can get an ad –free wikispace for free as an educator<br />http://www.wikispace.com/ not as pretty... <br />www.google.com Yes- Google even does wikis ... And they’re the prettiest I’ve seen.<br />
