Who wants to wiki

  1. 1. Who Wants to Wiki? Jana Flippin Spring 2010
  2. 2. What on earth is a wiki?
  3. 3. Simply put, it is a web-based collaboration tool.
  4. 4. Users may . . . “add content to a webpage on the fly, generally with little or no knowledge of html coding required” (Achterman).
  5. 5. You use an editing tool resembling most word processing applications. Note the familiar features here.
  6. 6. What resources are available to students and educators on a wiki?
  7. 7. Privacy options: a wiki may be either public or private, requiring a password for access.
  8. 8. The teacher/author may provide syllabi or a project schedule users may access.
  9. 9. One way to accomplish this is found at Erik Myers’s wiki for photography education. http://
  10. 10. Spaces may be created for individual and group use.
  11. 11. Science class research, analysis of literature, studies of the environment, and research of cultures in geography or foreign language classes, are a few examples.
  12. 12. The teacher and students may also dialogue about choices and topics relating to their research using the “Discussion” or “Comments” page.
  13. 13. Students may also be led through a wiki creation process of their own, as Jennifer Hunt and company have done.
  14. 14. Concerns and Considerations
  15. 15. Students will require structure and scaffolding (Achterman); do not let them jump in without a lifejacket.
  16. 16. What if a change made by a student is a problem?
  17. 17. The teacher can easily restore an earlier version of the page.
