  • The Web 2.0 World Duffield – October 2, 2009 Nicole Lakusta Educational Technology Facilitator
    • How can we engage students’ learning more meaningfully and personally – that is, in ways that hook into their everyday experiences and that build on their current knowledge using technology?
  • Web 2.0 link for teachers
    • http://psdtechpd.wikispaces.com
    • Students Must Be:
    • Collaborators
    • Synthesizers
    • Explainers
    • Problem Solvers
  • WIKI 101
    • What is a WIKI?
    • Why do we WIKI?
    • Pedagogical Classroom Use of WIKIs
    • WIKI assessment
    • Now it’s YOUR turn!
    • Introduce to your Class
  • WIKI info
    • It is an easy to use editable website designed for collaboration.
    • Anyone with a shared wiki password can edit the content anytime.
  • Why Do We Wiki?
    • Free
    • Can be used on older computers
    • Any internet connection (dial up, DSL, etc.)
    • Easy to set up and use
    • “ Think Pair Share” for the computer

  • Learning and sharing
      • Class discussion in any subject. For example, Language Arts – “What are modern examples of books/movies/songs inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet?” You students can join the wiki conversation AND you can invite other classes to join if you like.
      • Interdisciplinary . Two different subjects and teachers can join to create one wiki. For example, one teacher can start a wiki page on Cinco de Mayo and students studying Mexico in history can write about it from a historical point of view and students from Spanish class can write about it from a cultural point of view.
      • Peer Editing – have students post their essays/projects on the wiki.
      • Research Paper – set up a wiki page for students to add their research (follow through edits).
      • Wiki communications – connect with another country that speaks the target language and have students exchange info about each other’s cultures through the wiki.

      • Managing your space – permissions, adding members, locking pages, add video, widgets, pictures, polls…..
    • See - http://psdtechpd.wikispaces.com
    • For example:
    • Collaborative effort
      • Several participants have contributed. Wikis are collaborative. Each person brings their strengths and contributes things that they are good at to the project. (Easily seen in history.)
    • Visual appeal
      • Graphics are used as needed and add to the message. Graphics are not distracting and used where needed to further explain a topic. If does not look cluttered.
    • Organization
      • A table of contents is used, headings and underlines are used appropriately.
    • Hyperlinks
      • An effective wiki hyperlinks sources and gives readers additional information about the topic. Make sure that you have checked your hyperlinks and that they work.
    • Original, intelligent wording
      • The effective wiki summarizes information but never copies it! (Cite your sources.) The wording is intelligent and meaningful and jargon is not used. Wikis may be read by a global audience and authors must keep that in mind.
    • Spelling, grammar, punctuation
    • Completion of topic assignment
