Wikis In Education Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Teaching in a Participatory Culture How wikis can support learning
  • 2. The World is Flat
    • Thomas L. Friedman
    • Describes the unplanned cascade of technological and social shifts that effectively leveled the economic world
    • Implications for educational systems
      • http://www.eschoolnews.com/eti/2005/05/000835.php
  • 3. The Flatteners
    • Fall of the Berlin Wall / rise of Windows OS
    • Netscape IPO / dotcom boom
    • Work flow software / design, display, manage, and collaborate
  • 4. The Flatteners
    • Open sourcing / self organizing collaborative communities
    • Outsourcing
    • Offshoring
    • Supply-chaining
    • In-forming (affinity networks)
  • 5. The Flatteners
    • The Steroids: Digital, Mobile, Personal, and Virtual
      • These are all the “new” gadgets, technologies, social norms and values, and etc. that are accelerating the other flatteners
  • 6. Dr. Daggett’s Mega-Trends
    • Globalization
    • Demographics
    • Technology
    • Changing Values and Attitudes
    http://www.leadered.com/whitepapers - Preparing Students for Their Future
  • 7. Global Implications
    • These changes, among others, are ushering us toward a world where knowledge, power, and productive capability will be more dispersed than at any time in our history—a world where value creation will be fast, fluid, and persistently disruptive.
    • A world where only the connected will survive.
    Don Tapscott - Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything
  • 8. Global Implications
    • A power shift is underway, and a tough new business rule is emerging: Harness the new collaboration or perish.
    • Those who fail to grasp this will find themselves ever more isolated—cut off from the networks that are sharing, adapting, and updating knowledge to create value.
    Don Tapscott - Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything
  • 9. In times of change, learners inherit the Earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists. Eric Hoffer
  • 10. Get flat or be flattened
  • 11. Web 2.0 The evolution of the semantic read/write web
  • 12. Web 1.0  Web 2.0
  • 13. What is Web 2.0?
    • Web 2.0 is a term often applied to a perceived ongoing transition of the World Wide Web from a collection of static websites to a full-fledged computing platform serving web applications to end users.
      • Tim O’Reilly
  • 14. Confronting the Challenges of a Participatory Culture Media Education for the 21 st Century
  • 15.
    • “ If it were possible to define generally the mission of education, it could be said that its fundamental purpose is to ensure that all students benefit from learning in ways that allow them to participate fully in public, community, [Creative] and economic life.”
    • — New London Group (2000)
    Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century - Henry Jenkins 10/19/06
  • 16. Participatory Culture
    • According to a recent study from the Pew Internet & American Life project (Lenhardt & Madden, 2005), more than one-half of all teens have created media content, and roughly one-third of teens who use the Internet have shared content they produced.
    Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century - Henry Jenkins 10/19/06
  • 17. A Participatory Culture . . .
    • Relatively low barriers to artistic expression and civic engagement
    • Strong support for creating and sharing one’s creations with others
    • Some type of informal mentorship whereby what is known by the most experienced is passed along to novices
    Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century - Henry Jenkins 10/19/06
  • 18. A Participatory Culture . . .
    • Members believe that their contributions matter
    • Members feel some degree of social connection with one another (at the least they care what other people think about what they have created)
    Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century - Henry Jenkins 10/19/06
  • 19. Forms of Participatory Culture
    • Affiliations — memberships, formal and informal, in online communities centered around various forms of media, such as Friendster, Facebook, message boards, metagaming, Second Life, or MySpace, wikis
    • Expressions — producing new creative forms, such as digital sampling, skinning and modding, fan videomaking, fan fiction writing, zines, mash-ups
    Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century - Henry Jenkins 10/19/06
  • 20. Forms of Participatory Culture
    • Collaborative Problem-solving — working together in teams, formal and informal, to complete tasks and develop new knowledge (such as through Wikipedia , alternative reality gaming, spoiling).
    • Circulations — Shaping the flow of media (such as podcasting, blogging).
    Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century - Henry Jenkins 10/19/06
  • 21. Implications
    • A growing body of scholarship suggests potential benefits of these forms of participatory culture, including:
      • opportunities for peer-to-peer learning,
      • a changed attitude toward intellectual property,
      • the diversification of cultural expression,
      • the development of skills valued in the modern workplace, and a more empowered conception of citizenship.
    Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century - Henry Jenkins 10/19/06
  • 22. Implications
    • Participatory culture shifts the focus of literacy from one of individual expression to community involvement.
    • The new literacies almost all involve social skills developed through collaboration and networking.
    • These skills build on the foundation of traditional literacy, research skills, technical skills, and critical analysis skills taught in the classroom.
    Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century - Henry Jenkins 10/19/06
  • 23. The New Literacies
    • Play — the capacity to experiment with one’s surroundings as a form of problem-solving
    • Performance — the ability to adopt alternative identities for the purpose of improvisation and discovery
    • Simulation — the ability to interpret and construct dynamic models of real-world processes
    • Appropriation — the ability to meaningfully sample and remix media content
    Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century - Henry Jenkins 10/19/06
  • 24. The New Literacies
    • Multitasking — the ability to scan one’s environment and shift focus as needed to salient details.
    • Distributed Cognition — the ability to interact meaningfully with tools that expand mental capacities
    • Collective Intelligence — the ability to pool knowledge and compare notes with others toward a common goal
    • Judgment — the ability to evaluate the reliability and credibility of different information sources
    Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century - Henry Jenkins 10/19/06
  • 25. The New Literacies
    • Transmedia Navigation — the ability to follow the flow of stories and information across multiple modalities
    • Networking — the ability to search for, synthesize, and disseminate information
    • Negotiation — the ability to travel across diverse communities, discerning and respecting multiple perspectives, and grasping and following alternative norms.
    Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century - Henry Jenkins 10/19/06
  • 26. Wikis
  • 27. Wikinomics
    • In the last few years, traditional collaboration—in a meeting room, a conference call, even a convention center—has been superceded by collaborations on an astronomical scale.
    • Today, encyclopedias, jetliners, operating systems, mutual funds, and many other items are being created by teams numbering in the thousands or even millions.
    • While some leaders fear the heaving growth of these massive online communities, Wikinomics explains how to prosper in a world where new communications technologies are democratizing the creation of value.
    http://www.wikinomics.com/
  • 28. What is a Wiki?
    • A wiki is a type of free on-line writing space that allows users to add, modify and update its pages.
    • If something is missing or incorrect in a wiki and permissions allow you to edit the wiki, you can easily add your thoughts or make changes to the wiki.
    • It is essentially a fully editable web site.
    http://www.teachinghacks.com/wiki/index.php?title=Wikis
  • 29. How is a Wiki Constructed?
    • A single page in a wiki is referred to as a "wiki page", while the entire body of pages, which are usually highly interconnected via hyperlinks, is “the wiki”
  • 30. Philosophy of Wikis
    • The process is the product.
      • Meaning is developed and guided out of the social interactions at the point where text is created.
    • One of the most obvious benefits of using a wiki is the ability to offer a quick way to collaborate textually, while creating a content rich web site. Where the knowledge of the group is greater than an individual, and the end product is the result of the groups interactions.
    http://www.teachinghacks.com/wiki/index.php?title=Wikis
  • 31. Philosophy of Wikis
    • Wikis are generally designed with the philosophy of making it easy to correct mistakes, rather than making it difficult to make them.
  • 32. Application of New Literacies
    • Appropriation — the ability to meaningfully sample and remix media content
    • Multitasking — the ability to scan one’s environment and shift focus as needed to salient details.
    • Distributed Cognition — the ability to interact meaningfully with tools that expand mental capacities
    • Collective Intelligence — the ability to pool knowledge and compare notes with others toward a common goal
    • Judgment — the ability to evaluate the reliability and credibility of different information sources
    • Transmedia Navigation — the ability to follow the flow of stories and information across multiple modalities
    • Networking — the ability to search for, synthesize, and disseminate information
    • Negotiation — the ability to travel across diverse communities, discerning and respecting multiple perspectives, and grasping and following alternative norms.
    Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century - Henry Jenkins 10/19/06
  • 33. Are Wikis Safe?
    • Thus while wikis are very open, they provide a means to verify the validity of recent additions to the body of pages.
      • The most prominent, on almost every wiki, is the "Recent Changes" page—a specific list numbering recent edits, or a list of all the edits made within a given timeframe.
  • 34. Tracking Changes
  • 35. Tracking Changes
  • 36. Using Wikis as a Source
    • Wikipedia is as reliable as other external sources we rely on.
    • Properly written articles cite the sources, and a reader should rely on the Wikipedia article as much, but no more, than the sources the article relies on.
      • If an article doesn't cite its sources, it may or may not be reliable.
    • A More Reliable Wikipedia?
      • http://discoveryeducation.typepad.com/pennsylvania/2007/02/a_more_reliable.html
  • 37. What the Experts are Saying
    • Wikis are helping young people develop “writing skills and social skills by learning about group consensus and compromise—all the virtues you need to be a reasonable and productive member of society.”
      • Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia
  • 38. What the Experts are Saying
    • “The media is controlled by people who have the resources to control it,” he says. “Wikis show that all of us have an equal opportunity to contribute to knowledge.”
      • Andy Garvin, head of the Digital Divide Network
  • 39. Ways to Use Wikis
    • Use for student projects where group members need to contribute at different times and from geographically diverse locations.
    • Use for collaborating on ideas and organizing documents and resources from individuals and groups of students.
    • Use as a presentation tool where those who attend a workshop can contribute to future versions of the workshop.
    • As a group research project for a specific idea.
    • Manage school and classroom documents.
    http://www.teachinghacks.com/wiki/index.php?title=Wikis
  • 40. Ways to Use Wikis
    • Use as a collaborative handout for students.
    • Writing: student created books and journaling. (i.e. Wikibooks )
    • Create and maintain a classroom FAQ
    • As a classroom discussion and debate area.
    • A place to aggregate web resources.
    • Choose a topic on Wikipedia , break the topic into facts, students verify the facts using their information literacy skills, and make changes accordingly (Citing sources).
