  2. 2. Describe and define a wiki, including strengths and weakness as a learning tool<br />Identify opportunities in which a wiki can be used to enable collaborative learning.<br />Discuss how course content and student learning can be enhanced by presentation and collaboration in a wiki.<br />Understand and perform basic page editing functions using wiki syntax.<br />Identify ways in which a wiki can be used in to enhance continuing competencies and evidence based practice.<br />Develop ideas for implementing continuing competency opportunities for clinicians and future alumni to create an ongoing rapport with academic programs.<br />Explore international learning opportunities in physical therapy through wiki use.<br />Objectives<br />
  3. 3. WIKI:A CONCEPTUAL OVERVIEW<br />Eric Robertson, PT, DPT<br />Assistant Professor<br />Texas State University, San Marcos<br /><br />
  4. 4. Describe and define a wiki, including strengths and weakness as a learning tool<br />History of Wiki’s<br />Current Concepts in Wiki’s<br />Wiki as a Learning Tool<br />Popular Wikis<br />
  5. 5. “Wiki” is derived from <br />“wiki wiki,” meaning quick. It refers to a style of website consisting of a simple syntax used to compose and edit pages by multiple people.<br />Wiki<br />
  6. 6. Memex - 1945<br />Vannevar Bush<br />Atlantic Monthly, “As We May Think”<br />WWW – 1990’s<br />First Wiki – 1994<br />Ward Cunningham<br />WikiWikiWeb at<br />Origins of Wikis<br />Life Magazine, 1945<br />
  7. 7. The First Wiki<br />Can edit the web page within a browser<br />
  8. 8. Editable<br />Within a web-browser<br />Wikis are edited using a simplified coding language, often referred to as “Wikitext” or “Wiki Syntax”<br />Wikis promote collaborative idea sharing<br />Wikis can control access, provide knowledge, manage projects, or act as a forum, among other things…<br />Community<br />Public or Private memberships<br />EASY!<br />Small learning curve<br />Features of a Wiki<br />
  9. 9. The place who makes the code for the website you visit. (Sometimes, they host it too!)<br />Examples: MediaWiki, Wikidot, WetPaint<br />Wiki Providers<br />
  10. 10. Wikis are one of several technologies to emerge that have a natural place in teaching and learning. <br />The Networked Teacher<br />Connected!<br />Alex Couros<br />
  11. 11. Learning as the goal<br />Learn as if you were teaching<br />Create more synapses?<br />Understand new information by doing something with it<br />Intentional Learning<br />Reflective Learning<br />Deeper Learning <br />
  12. 12. Traditional<br />Old hierarchy, gates information, peer-reviewed journals<br />Current Model<br />Less gating of information, peer-reviewed journals, but also some social influence<br />Moving to the Future<br />Ability to generate “buzz” on social networks, peer-review re-defined, no gated information…<br />Academic Rewards<br />Abassi<br />BMJ, 2002<br />
  13. 13. Example: Wikipedia and the NIH<br />Collaborative workshops for NIH-funded scientists<br />Case in Point:<br />
  14. 14.<br />Only 50 employees, $22 million in revenue<br /><br />Written by medical professionals<br /><br />“The how-to manual you can edit…”<br />Popular Wikis<br />
  15. 15. High-quality Content!<br />
  16. 16. In the classroom (Augur N, 2004)<br />In residencies (Naik AD, 2010)<br />In publishing research (Anything genetics…)<br />Continuing education (Varga-Atkins T, 2010)<br />“Always-on” learning model<br />Wikis = Professional Development<br />
  17. 17. Let’s check out an example of a wiki specific to physical therapy…<br />
