  1. 1. 4 Terry’s Wiki Warranty Purpose of the wiki The members of Ms. Terry’s class will be participating in a collective wiki for the purposes of: • Responding to and commenting on curriculum topics as we study them • Creating written projects/ media projects and commenting on each other’s work • Encouraging process writing • Practicing persuasive writing • Reviewing and sharing study strategies before tests and quizzes • Creative writing • Practicing taking varied points of view on a topic • Sharing classroom events with families and grade level buddies • Sharing special projects, such as International Collaboration, Global Projects, VoiceThreads, Podcasts, Movies etc. • Discussing current events • Making classroom suggestions • Creating FAQ pages on curriculum topics Safety This wiki will be created using a wiki tool at www.room202isb.wikispaces.com/ In the interest of students’ safety, the following restrictions have been configured on the wiki: • Only the teacher can enter registrations • Only students and staff members with a related interest to this class and project are allowed to add to or edit the wiki. • All wiki content is subject to teacher approval and/or deletion. • The teacher will be notified of any edits to the wiki. • All wiki content will be archived after the school year has ended. • No individual or identifiable profiles are available on the wiki Copyright © 2006 by Network for Instructional TV, Inc.

  2. 2. Terms and Conditions All students and participants in this wiki project must agree to the terms and conditions of this agreement. • No student may create a wikispace using their school username and password. • No student may edit or delete the work of another without including a written explanation for the changes in the discussion area for that page. • The teacher, Ms. Terry, will make every reasonable effort to monitor conduct on the wiki in order to maintain a positive learning community. All participants will respect the each other’s time and efforts by supporting the same positive approach. • No student or other participant may include any information or images on the site that could compromise the safety of himself/herself or other wiki members. Avoid specific comments about our location or schedules, if they would be visible to outsiders. Do not post individual names. • No student shall intentionally, nor unintentionally post messages in any wikispace forums/discussions encouraging others to visit a certain wikispace or website. This is viewed as "spamming" and will result in the deactivation of a student's account at wikispaces. • All participants will be respectful in their postings and edits. No trash-talk, inappropriate language, personal insults, profanity, spam, racist, sexist or discriminatory remarks, or threatening comments will be tolerated. • No student or other participant may post, comment, or change settings on the site in violation of these terms and conditions. • All participants must protect their log-in and password information, as well as class passwords (if any). If participants suspect that a password has been compromised, he/she must notify the teacher immediately. • No participant may share his/her log-in information or protected information about the site with anyone who is not a participant. This includes adding trackbacks or other means by which outsiders can access the site without permission. • Any participant who is aware of violations of this agreement by others must report these violations to the teacher immediately both verbally and in writing (email or note). • All use of the wiki must be in accordance with the school’s Acceptable Use Policy, including entries made from computers outside of school. • Uncited use of copyrighted material in wiki postings, files, or comments will be deemed as plagiarism and punished accordingly. • No posting or edit may facilitate or promote illegal activity, either overtly or by implication. • No student may edit or delete the work of another without including a written explanation for the changes in the discussion area for that page. Consequences of violating the Warranty Any violation of the above terms and conditions shall make the violator subject to both immediate termination from the wiki, and to discipline through the school code of conduct, where applicable. At the teacher’s discretion, a warning may be given in the case of minor infractions. Copyright © 2006 by Network for Instructional TV, Inc. All rights reserved Sample wiki agreement page 2 of 3
