Wikis in the Classroom



How to Use Wikis in a Classroom Setting

can be a bit of a daunting topic for a schoolteacher who is trying to teach a bunch of teenagers, but you can incorporate the process of wikis into your classroom. In fact, this platform can be a great hands-on learning tool, utilizing the real world, to teach various lessons.

Steps

  1. Create a project for your students which lends itself to a wiki-type interactive internet platform.
    • Find a situation where real work can be done to further the aims of the community.
    • Find ways for a class to contribute to their school and peers.
  2. Find a site online that will host a wiki for you.Check , and . Search on your favorite search engine to find more.
  3. Set up the wiki for your class.Unless you are teaching a class on how to do it, you will want to have the groundwork already done.
  4. Start your chosen project.Be sure when you explain it to your class that you have a goal. Just having students aimlessly creating something will not further anything.
  5. Set up a work plan, timeline, and milestones to keep students on track.
  6. Find ways to have students give feedback in the form of reports, journals, oral presentations, wall posters, etc.
  7. Make sure to incorporate this work into your grading scheme so their efforts count.
  8. Coordinate with the school, community, agency, organization, etc.that will benefit from the project to ensure that valid work is being performed.
  9. Show students how their efforts lead to real-world, valid and authentic results.A genuine project that helps others outside the class is much more meaningful than a make-believe situation.
  10. Try to get publicity for the project through the school, community or other newsletter or newspaper.Invite a reporter or other agency representative to visit the class and watch the students at work.
