Wikis in the Classroom

Page history last edited by Crew Carroll 10 years, 8 months ago

Workshop Overview


The first few minutes will be spent discussing a wiki, how it works, who controls it, etc...

We will then brainstorm the various uses of a wiki in the classroom and view examples of how they have been used.

Our next task will be editing a practice wiki.

Finally, each participant will be shown how to set up their own wiki and make it visually pleasing. 

Questions will be taken during the entire workshop.
