  • 1. Wikis 101 North View Primary School
  • 2. What’s a Wiki? • A wiki is a website that uses wiki software, allowing the easy creation and editing of any number of interlinked Web pages, using a simplified markup language or a WYSIWYG text editor, within the browser. • Wikis are often used to create collaborative websites and to power community websites. The collaborative encyclopedia Wikipedia is one of the best-known wikis.
  • 3. Why WIKI at all? • HBL due to H1N1 & other pandemics • LEAD allows us only 2 slots - Tuesday: 12noon to 2pm and Thursday: 6pm to 8pm • Online collaborative work for the digital natives - our pupils! • FREE ~ for our needs, at this point of time.
