    Student Introduction To Wikis Student Introduction To Wikis Presentation Transcript

    • Wiki-wiki (quick) Where you are author and editor! Created & presented by Melissa Brumsted, December 14, 2006
    • 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
    • Why use wikis? We vs. me.
      • Together people can…
      • build lots of content
      • check one another’s work
      • &
      • Add the latest information when it happens
      Wikis are usually really up to date because they can be edited so easily!
    • 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.
    • Why make wikis? We vs. me.
      • Together we can…
      • build content
      • check one another’s work
      • &
      • suggest changes to information
      We’re going to start today!
    • What will we use a wiki for? We’re going to build a class encyclopedia. Your articles & photographs will make up the encyclopedia.
    • 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.
    • To become a member:
      • Go to wikispaces & create an account.
      • Username: your first name
      • E-mail address: [email_address]
      • 2. Search for the BostonEcosystem wiki, and request membership.
      • 3. We’ll approve you & you’re ready to write & edit pages!
    • 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!
