Wiki Navigation Practice

Practice Wiki Page!

Wikis:

Wikis are collaborative websites that are edited and arranged by multiple sources. In many instances such as Wikipedia.org ANYONE can add or delete content. Wikipedia is the wiki that most people are familiar with but there are several others (click on the images above if you are interested in visiting these).

Three levels of permissions: wikis can be private (like this one). In order to view a private wiki you have to be invited to be a member. Wikis can be protected which means the contents are visible by anyone on the Internet but only members can edit or add information. The least restrictive permission is public. A public wiki is completely open for anyone to view and edit. All three layers of protection include a "revisions history" tracker that allows you to revert back to a previous version or to see who (if people are members) made changes.

Examples of wikis in education: please click on and view the wikis below.
  • My resource wiki- I come across hundreds of resources that I may not need immediately but want to keep for reference. I keep these resources on my wiki.
  • Animal research wikis in 4th grade & 2nd grade: during the spring two of my teachers used wikis with their students to research animals. The students each had their own wiki page to edit and share content.
  • Wiki as a Classroom website: Not recommended but certainly a possibility
  • A Collaborative Project: This wiki is a collaboration project between students at different schools!

Blogs:


Blogs are generally used for three purposes: distribute information, discussions, and demonstration. There are several ways they can be used in education: please click on and view the blogs below

What Does a Good Blog Post Look Like?
Blog posts are a reflection of the author. It's easy to spot the difference between a weak post and a strong post. It's easy to see who truly reflected on the topic and who sat down and wrote the post in 5 minutes. Take a look at two posts: a weak post and an exemplary post.
