      Intro to Wikis
    • What is a Wiki?
      Foundational Web 2.0 building block
      A technology created to solve a problem
      Lets anyone -- easily create and edit a website without worrying about versioning, permissions, ownership, HTML, complex formatting, etc. The goal was simple, collaborative creation.
      Digital Play dough
      A wiki is a body of ideas that a community is willing to know and maintain.
    • Video – What’s a Wiki?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dnL00TdmLY
    • Video – Blogs v. Wikis
    • Common Uses for Wikis
    • Wikis you may have seen…
    • Some Other Uses for Wikis
    • Educational Uses for Wikishttp://www.smartteaching.org/blog/2008/08/50-ways-to-use-wikis-for-a-more-collaborative-and-interactive-classroom/
      Teacher/student collaboration
      Individual assessment projects
      Lesson Summaries
      Concept Introduction
      Exploratory Projects
      Knowledge Construction
      Dissemination of Important Classroom Learning Beyond the Classroom
    • Pedagogical Concerns…
      When edtech tools are matched up with Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy, wikis can be used to support activities at every level of the taxonomy: http://edorigami.wikispaces.com/Bloom%27s+and+ICT+tools#toc4

      • http://wardsworld.pbworks.com/
      • http://fifthgradeplants.pbworks.com/
      • http://grade3responds.pbworks.com/
    • Some Additional Classroom Wikis
      Active Student Use
      No Active Student use
      http://bookbuddyreviews.pbworks.com/ -- Student book reports
      http://littlewoodnatureguide.wetpaint.com/ - Student compiled nature guide
      http://spfractions.wikispaces.com/ - Math explanations
      http://pams50states.wikispaces.com/ - State reports
      http://school-is-cool.pbworks.com/ - Classroom portal page
      http://fiestawiki.pbworks.com/ - teacher uses site to posts his notes
    • Examples of PPS Approved Wikis
      Active Student Use
      Teacher Collaboration
      Student portfolios (samples of writing; culminating projects;
      Student collaborative writing (student written study guides, reference books; peer editing)
      Collaborate on lesson plans
      Sharing strategies and/or lesson resources
      Handbook/FAQ
      Curricular/Project teamwork
    • Hands-on time
      Mapping your Wiki
      • Talk to a neighbor about what you might use your wiki for.
      • Use Inspiration or Kidspiration to diagram what your wiki structure might look like.
    • Next Steps…
    • Part 2
      Setting Up Your Wiki
      Intro to Wikis
    • Review from Session 1
      Wikis
      PPS Wiki Guidelines
      Can be used for many things
      Support Blooms Taxonomy as recently revised for 21st century skills
      Are considered an extension of the classroom
      Should be used for active student use

    • Hands-on time
      Creating your wiki
    • Creating your Wiki
    • Workspace Security Settings
    • Anatomy of a Wiki Page
      Navigation:
      • Front Page (x2)
      • Search
      • Navigator
      • Sidebar
      Menu Bar:
      • Creating a new page
      • Uploading files
      • Full screen view
      Web 2.0 features
      • Page history
      • Comments
      • 2 sides – seen and unseen
    • Account settings
    • Workspace Preferences
    • Changing passwords
    • Wiki Settings
      Colors – change the color of your pages
      Logo (*) – upload a logo for your page
      Backup (*) – create a backup copy of your wiki
    • User accounts
      Five different levels
      Administrator –Administrators can rename, delete and change permissions on just about anything in the wiki. Admins alone have access to the workspace's Settings page and are also the only ones who can change page and folder level security settings. Admins are the only ones who can see Hidden pages or edit Locked pages. For PPS, the Administrator must be the teacher responsible for the wiki – the one who makes the original application. PPS wikis can only have one administrator (unless prior permission is given).
      Editor - Editors are highly privileged Writers. They can rename or delete pages, files and folders. Editors should be highly trusted, since they can delete your data irrevocably.
      Writer - The recommended default for students. Writers can edit pages and revert pages to previous versions. They can also upload new files and create new pages. Writers cannot perform any action that cannot be undone.
      Readers - Readers cannot make any modifications at all to a workspace, except for commenting on pages. They can view pages, RSS feeds, and files. They can also see the history of changes that have been made to a page. Admins can disable commenting by Readers on the workspace security page.
      Page Level - these users have no special access to any part of the workspace until they are explicitly given access to a page or a folder with the Custom Security setting. This feature allows you to give individual users up to Editor level permissions on a single page (or group of pages in a folder) without giving them access to any other part of the workspace. This feature is only available once you have an upgraded wiki.
    • Wiki Settings
      Workspace security – the same options we looked at when you made your wiki. Best Practice/PPS guidelines:
      Anyone can view the workspace – authentic audience
      Only approved people can edit – moderation of wiki editing and controlling the number of licenses
      Access requests – do not allow additional users require additional licenses
      Allow commenting for readers (as appropriate) – You’ll want students to be able to comment on each other’s work.
    • Wiki Settings
      Notifications and RSS – Allows wiki to notify people when changes are made to your wiki. Best Practice/PPS guidelines:
      Email notifications – Required. This allows you to moderate the changes students make on the wiki.
      Allow users to access the RSS feed – Your discretion. Interested parents might use this to follow changes on your wiki…
    • Wiki Settings
      Developer Interface – Advanced settings for programmers…DON’T touch these unless you are absolutely sure that you know what you are doing. These changes are irrecoverable.
      License – Tells you if your wiki has been upgraded.
    • Pages & Files
      Pages and Files
      All pages that exist on the wiki
      All files that have been uploaded
      All folders that have been created
      Create new pages and folders
      Upload files
      Upgrade allows:
      Page creation from files
      Folder/page security
    • Hands-on time
      Look at the pages in your Wiki:
      • Do you need to add some?
      • D you need to delete some?
      Do you need some folders?
    • Editing your Wiki
      • Most controls mimic MS Word
      • Special “buttons”
      • Horizontal line
      • Remove formatting
      • View HTML source code
      • Spell check
      • Plugins
      Tip: No right clicking - CTRL + C is the shortcut for “copy” ; CTRL + V is the shortcut for “paste”
      Don’t forget to Save!!
