1,695 views

Published on

This session demonstrates a wiki developed for my classes over time that colleagues in my teaching context started collaborating with, and how I created a wiki to help my colleagues create their own, in such a way that it modeled how learning can be facilitiated through a wiki, at http://kbzpd.pbworks.com

Flipping the flip: Organizing students around a wiki and training colleagues to do likewise

  1. 1. Flipping the Flip: Organizing students around a wiki and training colleagues to do likewise Fall Blog Festival Sept 21, 2014 Vance Stevens HCT / CERT / KBZAC Al Ain UAE
  2. 2. My slides are always posted at Slideshare.net http://slideshare.net/vances I’ve noticed that in the first few slides on sets posted at Slideshare.net the hyperlinks don’t work. So, there are some intro slides here to work around this problem. http://www.slideshare.net/vances/fall-blogfest2014
  3. 3. Combined Learning2gether and Fall Blog Festival 2014 event Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  4. 4. Learning2gether: Free Weekly Online PD http://learning2gether. net/ All Learning2gether events are indexed here http://learning2gether. pbworks.com/w/page/ 34456755/archiveindex This presentation is done as a regular weekly Learning2gether event as well as an event in the Fall Blog Festival 2014 http://learning2gether.net/2014/09/21/learning2gether-with-the-fall-blog-festival/ Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  5. 5. Toolkit for Shared Learning This is part of an ongoing PD blog initiative where I work http://toolkit4learning.blogspot.ae/2014/09/organizing-students-around-wikis-and.html Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  6. 6. Flipping the flip? • I use a wiki with my students where I teach at http://kbzac.pbworks.com • Colleagues have started to appreciate using the wiki in courses we teach mutually • I have been asked to help train teachers to create their own wikis at http://kbzpd.pbworks.com • As I teach my colleagues I model how a wiki can archive the learning in such as way as to train others who might use it later in a flipped context Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  7. 7. Flip-as-You-Go This begs the question • Is it best to prepare the course in advance (so that students can theoretically use it to prepare beforehand?) • Or to create the course as you teach it? (You explain, demonstrate, archive what you did at the end of each lesson) • Or both? This presentation is an examination of the latter approach, a sort of Flip-as-You-Go method Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  8. 8. Fall Blog Festival Recording Link This presentation was recorded in WizIQ Click on picture to access the recording This session demonstrates a wiki developed for my classes over time that colleagues in my teaching context started collaborating with, and how I created a wiki to help my colleagues create their own, in such a way that it modeled how learning can be facilitiated through a wiki, at http://kbzpd.pbworks.com Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  9. 9. Why this works for students • Clear assignments • Clear tasks with links to course documents, other materials, media, and online spaces used • Archive of past assignments Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  10. 10. Introducing http://KBZAC.pbworks.com Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  11. 11. Affordances for teachers • Clarity in setting up courses so others may follow them • Create record of syllabuses taught, useful when repeating similar courses • Create library of materials used; media, documents, etc. • Open and shareable – Can share resources by links – Can GOOGLE for resources Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  12. 12. Open and shareable • A colleague remembered I had set up instructions for students to download and install Audacity • She asked me where are they? • (I didn’t know offhand; it’s an organically developed site) • I suggested we Google “kbzac” and “audacity” • We were feeling lucky  Bingo! Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  13. 13. Open means you can Google it Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  14. 14. How best to deliver materials for a new course • I am a teacher on a newly restructured aviation English course • Welter of new materials drove colleagues to explore online spaces to organize resources; e.g. – Dropbox – Google Drive – Google Docs – Showbie – LAN – WIKI !! Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  15. 15. Some preferred the Wiki Way • Small team used my wiki for collaboration on course development and implementation – We could set up common materials, notices, assessment strategies on one page – Each team member could have own page – Facilitated sharing because wiki members uploaded files to the wiki (each has a link) – From the wiki we could link to spaces others were using (though not the other way around ) Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  16. 16. Introducing http://KBZPD.pbworks.com Other teachers wanted to use the wiki approach • I started teaching them by creating a wiki where I could archive lessons so others could catch up • The archive can then morph into a flipped lesson • This models approach to online course design that teachers could adopt in creating their own wikis organically for students Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  17. 17. http://kbzpd.pbworks.com This presentation is about the modeling  This is the space where the modeling was done Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  18. 18. Wiki approach to designing blended learning environments • Develop your site as a tutorial • Lots of links to – resources subsumed under tutorial (annotated, not just list of resources) – Other participants’ wikis to showcase other’s work and promote collaboration • Illustrate concepts with screen shots from Jing – Get it free from http://jingproject.com • Set headings (H1, H2, etc) to create Table of Contents Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  19. 19. Drawbacks to wikis • Text-ish • Navigation needs to be designed • Clunky placement of graphics • HTML sometimes needed to correct bugs in wiki display (This can be an affordance!) Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  20. 20. Affordances of wikis • Revision history, can revert to previous versions • Sidebar and Table of Contents to facilitate navigation • Education resources stored at the wiki – Each resource has a link – File sharing; others can download • From the wiki itself or • from those links – generous space allocation • HTML can be used to augment, embed, etc. Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  21. 21. Revision History An old page from development of this wiki is used to illustrate how to generate a Table of Contents Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
  22. 22. Why Table of Contents? This is from Revision History This is the current pager Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9

  26. 26. What are link loops? • Not everyone understands the concept of hyperlinking, so in training we may have to start there • Link to from a teacher’s portal to anything else, and from there link back again Find this explained here in KBZPD wiki http://kbzpd.pbworks.com/w/page/85843726/purpose_page #Section2hasthreepartsletscallitLinkLoops Vance Stevens Fall Blog Fest 2014 rev.24/9
