Wikis

Definition


Apple Wiki's are a collaborative space where students can login and create pages to demonstrate understanding. They are best suited to small project work where you want students to create the knowledge and to synthesis information from a variety of multimedia sources. You can embed pictures, links and some videos into the Apple Wikis. You can also create the wiki as you go by adding links to new pages.

 

 

 


 

 

Practical examples to support learning

 

http://wiki.iss.edu.sg/groups/psychology/ This is a wiki for homework created for the Grade 11 DP Psychology Class. Student are using the comment functions to reflect on the questions. These types of activities are suited to pieces of work where there is not one "common accepted answer" and are more opinionated.

 

 

English B - Novel Study - This an example of a wiki where you want to keep the work on the students in one place so that everyone in the class can read each others work. This is for a novel study in Grade 11 English B with Fiona Edwards.

 

Great resource to explore for ideas…

These are more individual spaces where students can display their work. Good for goal setting and reflection. (ePortfolios)

Further reading/exploration

 

This is a really good overview about the difference between a wiki and blog and google doc. The differences are very subtle and hard to articulate, but this document does an ok job at contrasting the three options https://docs.google.com/Doc?docid=ddnzwcn8_15g3jrbpdf
