  1. 1. <ul><li>Team: 2 </li></ul><ul><li>Carmen Anahis Rdz </li></ul><ul><li>Sarai Altamirano </li></ul><ul><li>Carolina Nery </li></ul>
  2. 2. Objectives: <ul><li>What is a Wiki? </li></ul><ul><li>Strategies for Using Wikis in the Classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>Advantages to Using a Wiki </li></ul><ul><li>Disadvantages to Using a Wiki </li></ul><ul><li>Using a Wiki can help you </li></ul><ul><li>Conclusion </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>A wiki is a website where users can add, remove, and edit every page using a web browser. It's so terrifically easy for people to jump in and revise pages that wikis are becoming known as the tool of choice for large, multiple-participant projects. </li></ul>
  4. 5. Strategies for Using Wikis in the Classroom
  5. 6. <ul><li>1. Collaborative Projects using Wikis. This technology tool is ideal for project-based learning, cross curricular projects in middle school teams, and thematic units . </li></ul><ul><li>2. Students Demonstration of Knowledge. Students provide information that fits within specific parameters on the Wiki to demonstrate what they have learned. </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>3. Online Resources for Classroom Use. A list of websites that provided appropriate information related to subject content is provided by the teacher for student use during the school year. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Wikis as a Classroom Webpage. This strategy provides everyday information for students use during the school year. </li></ul><ul><li>5. Wiki Filing Cabinet. Teachers can store files, images, videos, and other information in a special teacher access controlled area of the classroom Wiki. </li></ul>
  7. 8. Advantages to Using a Wiki <ul><li>Good for writing down quick ideas or longer ones, giving you more time for formal writing and editing. </li></ul><ul><li>Instantly collaborative without emailing documents, keeping the group in sync. </li></ul><ul><li>Accessible from anywhere with a web connection (if you don't mind writing in web-browser text forms). </li></ul><ul><li>Your archive, because every page revision is kept. </li></ul><ul><li>Exciting, immediate, and empowering--everyone has a say. </li></ul>
  8. 9. Disadvantages to Using a Wiki <ul><li>Dirty laundry isn't a good public face. If a wiki's a shared memory, it's not going to be terribly tidy, and you may not want people to see your half-formed, unsure, and speculative ideas (though actually, we advise against having your wiki be public). </li></ul><ul><li>Its tendency to get messier. A wiki isn't an administrative panacea, and there's certain maintenance you need to perform, otherwise it'll turn into unusable idea soup. </li></ul><ul><li>Its terrible content management system. You'll have to look after your own standards for formatting and when it comes to moving to whatever your final document format is, there'll be more work. </li></ul>
  9. 10. <ul><li>If you have a public wiki with open editing, you'll need to patrol it to avoid users battling over content unproductively. </li></ul><ul><li>It's not so good for non-geeks, as you need to be reasonably tech-savvy and familiar with the concept of text markup. </li></ul><ul><li>It's not obvious how to set up or back up your wiki software. </li></ul>
  10. 11. Using a Wiki can help you: <ul><li>Keep all of your notes on the wiki </li></ul><ul><li>Use attachments </li></ul><ul><li>It's all about getting used to the wiki </li></ul><ul><li>Don't be uptight about using the wiki for collaboration </li></ul>
  11. 12. Conclusion <ul><li>Integration of a Wiki in the classroom requires a new approach to teaching and learning for engaging students. </li></ul><ul><li>To effectively integrate a Wiki in the classroom, students must participate in the process of sharing information and demonstrating understanding of content with the teacher and other students. </li></ul>
