  • In addition to a chance to noodle around on the site and get some practice making a wiki, we’ll start by brainstorming ways that creating a webpage would be a good learning experience … field trips, reports, sharing science fair projects, research projects, shared bibliographies for group projects?
  • This is my time grid; I’ve condensed wiki tutorial into the ‘wow with wiki’ section. The practice page part of the workshop includes the small group activity ‘wiki or tricky’. Wrap up is for any questions.
  • (Wiki is a Hawaiian word for fast… there is a wiki wiki shuttle at honolulu airport) Making a wiki page is sort of like html, or hypertext markup language, in that there is text that surrounds webpage content and designates what the text should look like = = for section headings, * for bulleted lists (** to indent further), ‘’ for italics, and “” for bold … (in contrast, for bold in html, you enclose the text in<em>< em> use <h1> <h1> for headings etcetcetc At wikispaces, you can perform all these functions using a tool bar that looks a lot like what you might use for microsoft word, so it’s very intuitive.
  • Here’s a screenshot of my wiki page. Go to ltg wiki Go to ltg photos Edit page Show how to make headings, make an external link, make an internal link, upload pictures to internal link
  • gslisstudents@wikispace.com, familytrips@wikispace.com, lis431@wikispace.com for example Go to ‘edit page’ This is the point where participants will create their webpages
  • You can upload pdf and excel files the same way. If you want your files or photos on another page within your website, click the “link” icon. Select wiki link. The link will appear red in your page until you add content to it. To add content, click on your link. Then go to “edit page” from here you can upload your photos etc. You can double click on any photo to get the “image properties” box to appear. From there, you can add or edit the caption, etc.
  • This is our small group activity. By now, participants will have had a chance to try making a wiki page. For this activity, you’ll select a task and show another workshop participant how to make this change to their website. Then swap roles. This is a good time to ask questions from other workshop participants and the facilitator.
  • If you get stuck, go to “wikispaces” and check out the series of brief tours
  • Thank you for coming to this workshop!!!
