Transcript

  • 1. Using wikis in the second language classroom Dr. Yuly Asenci ón-Delaney Modern Languages Department Northern Arizona University
  • 2. What is a wiki?
    • Definition:
    • It’s an open, free, web-based software/application/tool that allows all viewers of a page to change the content by editing the page online in a browser (Ebersbach, Glaser, & Heigl, 2006)
    • It’s a website where anyone can edit anything anytime they want (Richardson, 2006).
    • Features:
    • Content is ego-less, time-less, and never finished.
    • It does not only have text, but also graphics, links, annotations, reflections, PowerPoint presentations, video and audio files, discussion forum, and spreadsheets.
    • Content is made available in a quick and uncomplicated manner.
  • 3. Uses of wiki in the L2 classroom - Examples
    • To teach collaborative writing skills (brainstorming, create or edit entries to books that have already been started elsewhere, summarize readings and movies, develop research projects)
    • ( http://schools.wikia.com/wiki/Tragedies )
    • ( http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/French/Texts )
    • To develop reading/listening comprehension ( http://leyendoenspa102.wetpaint.com/ ) ( http://listolearn.wetpaint.com/ ).
    • To create an online text for your curriculum that you and your students can both contribute to ( http://spa513.wetpaint.com/ ).
  • 4. Uses - Examples
    • To publish course resources like syllabi, handouts ( http://profesorablue.wetpaint.com/ )
    • As a presentation tool - students are able to comment on and revise the presentation content.
    • It could be a resource, a showcase for best practices/teaching portfolio ( http://fre202.wetpaint.com/ ).
    • It can be use as collaborative tools among teachers or districts to collect and share information.
    • ( http://educators.pbwiki.com/ESL+wikis )
  • 5. Benefits
    • Giving students editorial control can imbue in them a sense of responsibility and ownership for the site.
    • Students learn how to develop and use all sorts of collaborative skills, negotiating with others to agree on correctness, meaning, relevance, and more.
    • Easy-to-use. It requires little technical support and training.
  • 6. Benefits
    • Wikis invigorate and facilitate writing, reading, listening and speaking.
    • They provide an effective communication and collaboration tool.
    • They’re learner-centered, affordable and accessible.
    • Foster collaborative learning
    • Task-oriented and authentic.
  • 7. Concerns
    • To track work created in wiki spaces.
    • Attribution of individual work can be difficult.
    • Difficult to show when information was documented.
    • Wikis can be subject to vandals - individuals posting content.
  • 8. How do we create wikis?

      • Pbwiki
      • Wikispaces
