  • "Wiki-wiki" means "hurry quick" in Hawaiian.
  • Import changes into an rss aggregator (bloglines)
  • Introducing wikis into the classroom provides a perfect vehicle for reinforcing or teaching students the importance of wide and reliable research, checking authors and sources, etc. Just as podcasting and blogging provides a vehicle for instructing students in copyright and fair use guidelines.
  • The Digital Divide Network is an online community of educators and policy makers who are seeking ways to narrow the gap between the Internet haves and have-nots.
  • Use wikis as formats for subject guides . “The great thing about that,” she says, “is that librarians would be creating the wiki themselves in concert with teachers.” Invite students and teachers to annotate your catalog on a wiki . “To students, the best advice comes from other students,” she says. “You could have kids write book reviews you could add to the catalog.” Make wikis meeting places for communities inside the school . For example, create a wiki as a kind of bulletin board, a repository for information that comes from the cafeteria, the principal’s office, students, teachers, and even parents. Link librarians in your district in a collaborative enterprise . When teaching in North Carolina, Rob Lucas set up a model for such a site. His Teachers Lounge is a wiki where first-year teachers can share lesson plans. Farkas’s libsuccess.org is another fine model.

Transcript

  • 1. Wikis On-line Collaboration Using Wikispaces
  • 2. What is a Wiki?
    • A wiki is a type of website that allows users easily to add, remove, or otherwise edit and change most available content.
  • 3. 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“
      • in effect, a wiki is actually a very simple, easy-to-use user-maintained database for searching and creating information.
  • 4. Are Wikis Safe?
    • Wikis are generally designed with the philosophy of making it easy to correct mistakes, rather than making it difficult to make them.
  • 5. 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.
  • 6. Tracking Changes
  • 7. Tracking Changes
  • 8. 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 a source, it may or may not be reliable.
    • Students should never use information in a wiki until they have checked those external sources.
  • 9. 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
  • 10. 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
