Student Introduction To Wikis

  1. 1. Wiki-wiki (quick) Where you are author and editor! Created & presented by Melissa Brumsted, December 14, 2006
  2. 2. Wiki: an expandable set of web pages written and edited by everyone. Have you seen wikipedia ? What about Wikitravel ? I like the Westwood Schools Wiki
  3. 3. Why use wikis? We vs. me. <ul><li>Together people can… </li></ul><ul><li>build lots of content </li></ul><ul><li>check one another’s work </li></ul><ul><li>& </li></ul><ul><li>Add the latest information when it happens </li></ul>Wikis are usually really up to date because they can be edited so easily!
  4. 4. Can I believe what I read on a wiki? You decide. If you discover a mistake, you can make it right! Read critically! Use another source (a print source from the library, an article in a trustworthy newspaper) to double check your facts.
  5. 5. Why make wikis? We vs. me. <ul><li>Together we can… </li></ul><ul><li>build content </li></ul><ul><li>check one another’s work </li></ul><ul><li>& </li></ul><ul><li>suggest changes to information </li></ul>We’re going to start today!
  6. 6. What will we use a wiki for? We’re going to build a class encyclopedia. Your articles & photographs will make up the encyclopedia.
  7. 7. Can anyone see & change our wiki’s information? Anyone can read our wiki, but only members of our wiki can add to or change what’s there.
  8. 8. To become a member: <ul><li>Go to wikispaces & create an account. </li></ul><ul><li>Username: your first name </li></ul><ul><li>E-mail address: [email_address] </li></ul><ul><li>2. Search for the BostonEcosystem wiki, and request membership. </li></ul><ul><li>3. We’ll approve you & you’re ready to write & edit pages! </li></ul>
  9. 9. Remember, a wiki is on the Internet, for all to see. Think about what you write! Ask lots of questions and make lots of mistakes. You’ll be a better reader, writer, and editor!
