  9. 9. Permissions Scantron “ I grant permission for my child to use educationally appropriate and HCPS approved web-based Web 2.0 to publish to the internet” “When using Web 2.0 applications in HCPS, personal information will be limited to the student’s first name and last initial. Students will be allowed to post their ideas and opinions, but not their age, email address, photographs, or other sensitive information. Web 2.0 tools are an extension of the classroom and appropriate use of the Internet will be expected.”
  10. 10. K-2 Grade Level Challenges • Username and passwords • Typing skills • How to combat the challenges? – Lots of practice – Get parents involved – Pair up with another grade level – Keep it simple “Students were highly motivated and they are so much more independent in signing in on our wiki and blog site! That has made my life so much easier and I am able to start taking them further with technology concepts. Being that I have my kids work on our wiki and blog often has made a world of difference!!! Most of my kids can maneuver thru my site with ease! Today, they left school saying they can't wait to show their parents all that we added to our blog! We added our Kerpoof drawings and the kids commented on a video and asked questions on the video I created.” - Tracy Borkowicz, HCPS Kindergarten Teacher
  11. 11. Wikis Wikispaces
  12. 12. What is a wiki? • The word wiki comes from the Hawaiian word for "quick." • It also stands for "what I know is...." • A wiki incorporates both of those meanings - it is a website where users quickly share what they know and share what they do. • One of the most well known wiki’s is Wikipedia, the world’s largest encyclopedia.
  13. 13. Harford County Guidelines • Harford County is endorsing the use of Wikispaces (educator account) to use within classrooms. • Wikispaces allows for an easy WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) page editor, image and file upload, page linking, widgets, page histories, discussion forums, easy setup and collaboration. HCPS 2010
  14. 14. Planning Your Wiki • Before you begin to create your wiki, consider using the Wiki Planning Sheet. – This will help you develop an idea for the direction you want to go with your wiki. – This will make navigation easier for students. – This will also help you to be sure that you have strong curriculum connections.
  15. 15. Setting Up Your Wiki 1. Open the Wikispaces Setup Sheet (a print copy has also been provided) 2. Follow the directions for Create an account for a free K-12 wiki. 3. Skip the Upgrade your wiki to the K-12 Plus plan.
  16. 16. Application • Using your planning sheet develop a lesson within your wiki thinking about how you will engage students. • Examples: – i. Post a Discovery Streaming video and have students respond to a particular question(s). – ii. Establish groups from a book and set up a discussion group. – iii. Add interactive content related to topic or unit, links, podcasts etc.
  17. 17. Blogging Kidblog and Edmodo
  18. 18. Edmodo • If using Edmodo, use this step by step guide. • School Codes for Edmodo (Upper right corner) • After your student groups are established you will need to provide your students with their group code. • At the student login screen, students will be prompted for their group code, username and password, first name and last name. • Students should not be providing any email address as none is required. • Set up the first post that you will use with students. HCPS 2010
